728JET Vs ERJ-170 Vs CRJ700

Wed Jan 05, 2000 5:30 am

What do you think? Which of these 70 seating-jets will be the winner in the race in the next years? All of them are new, the CRJ700 has already made its maiden flight and has about a two-years advance compared to the other two. But the 728JET is the probably most confortable and a 2-2 business class can be offered in, especially interesting for the airlines as the can increase the yield. And the ERJ-170 is the cheapest of them. So who will make it? What do you think? From the order book it is at the moment:
CRJ700: 99 firm orders
728JET: 60 firm orders (and 28 for the business version, called Envoj 7)
ERJ-170: 40 firm orders

Don't forget, there is the BAe Avro RJ-70, which has been out for a little while, now. I don't know what the order book on the RJ-70 is, though.

I having a feeling the CRJ and ERJ jets will both do very well, they'll wind up in fleets that already have both airliners (as well as the RJ-70).

I think the 728JET, although an interesting aircraft, will be an anomoly at best.

Please don´t forget that the ERJ-170 has nothing in common with the ERJ-135/140/145. And the commonality between the CRJ 100/200 and the 700 isn´t very big, American Eagle did choose the ERJ-145 and the CRJ700.

And to say something to the RJ-70: Forget it. It has accumulated a total of 12(twelve!!) orders and the new models, called RJ-X won´t be a great succes either. They have four engines compared to 2 of the other three competing planes. The RJ85/100/RJ-X will only have niche markets such has extrem hot-and-high conditions as there are in nothern Africa and Australia.

I personally think that the 728JET and the ERJ-170 will make the race. Also the CRJ700 has the most orders it can´t really compete with the other twos. And Lufthansa, the launch customer for the 728JET was the launch customer for the 737, too. Maybe only a sign, but a big one!


BTW, if you wish to see the order book for the RJ70/85/100, just take a look on my site. There you can find it.
