It's announced by Bombardier Aerospace that the CRJ-900 mades it's first flight at 21 february 2001. For Bombardier it's a great moment according to their press release. I'm asking myself: is there a market for another RJ. The CRJ-700 has it's first delivery a few days ago. This 900 has only 16 seats more. Wouldn't it be too much for the RJ-market. Embraer has also planned the EMB-170 and -190 in this segment. And Bombardier has only 14 firm orders for the 900.
What do you guys around the world think of this?
