That sounds about right. I believe the Legacy, based on the ERJ-135, costs around 20 million each. But remember that the Legacy has a bunch of "extras" airliners do not.
Ok, most of those "extras" cost a bundle. (Low unit run to amortize engineering and certifications costs.)
Within the numbers I've heard on the rumor mill. I've heard a bit less for the large orders with decent credit (AA, CO
), but my source isn't "gold plated."
What I'd like to know is the E-190AR cost estimate! I'll take any E-jet in fact... I think the E-jets are going to be big sellers. In my opinion they'll get "sales legs" after 300 or so have been delivered if not earlier. By "sales legs" I'm talking a quick ramp up to 1000+ sales (including currently announced minus cancellations). Why 300? That's the quantity required to set up a worldwide parts network (IIRC).
