And in the mean time, in the February 25 print edition of Aviation Week, has Aeroflot calling the the SSJ "appalling reliability".

The small SSJ fleet amounts to 40% of all technical incidents in the Aeroflot fleet and the model is plagued by issues that crop up frequently.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 1):

These issues better be cleared up by the time Interjet starts operating this aircraft later this year. SSJ is touting this carrier as its 'gateway' to to additional orders in the Americas, including the big markets in the US and Latin America.
