With more Russian airlines buying Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Do the new Tupolev designs have a future. Cairo Air had operated Tu-204's at one point and a Cargo operation leased Tu-204c's. From what I remember reading they were pleased with the Tu-204c's and were considering leasing more or buying there own. However it appears even more Russian Airlines are opting for western built aircraft, although each year a few Tu-204 variants are sold. Is this because of a lack of support from the manufacturer, reliability issues and or performance issues. Is there a market for these newer Tupolev designs out side of Russia? Perhaps Iran, Libya Africa?
