Sukhoi RRJ Has Been Launched

Thu Jul 22, 2004 1:03 pm

As if this market wasn't crazy enough  Big grin -


The E190/170 is entering service, we've already got the 717 and CRJ, Bombardier wants to launch the C-series... yikes.

Now the $64,000 question is, will this Russian aircraft ever achieve any serious export? Isn't Boeing a contractor in this project as well?

"the price of each airplane is about $20 million."

How does this compare with the prices with their would be competitors? I have no idea how much ERJ's and CRJ's run. I guess add the 717 for that matter. Thanks
