Aeroflot actually has a press release on its website about the order as well. Only problem being that it is in Russian, so if you can read, go to aeroflot.ru. I really hope that this plane does well for aeroflot, and I could see them utilize on flights to eastern europe while leaving airbus frames for western european longer flights, and once the new longhaul aircraft are introduced, like the 787 or A350 then maybe there will be new N/American routes. What are the possibilities that SU
would serve current SkyTeam hubs. Would it be more likely per se that SU
fly to Detroit rather than ORD
if they were considering to reinstall this route. I understand they fly into YYZ
, but then again ORD
and YZZ aren't Skyteam hubs. And what if NW
bought RRJ frames. By the way, 30 frames for 820 million doesn't sound like that much. It comes to 27.3 million per aircraft. I had posted something about the RRJ earlier, and my question is how does the RRJ compare to Embraer products in terms of range? I would assume the range would be longer considering the purpose of the aircraft is to link smaller russian cities with the major airports.
