Re: Updated: Interjet to sell its SSJ100 to focus on its A320 fleet.

Unfortunately the SSJs became a bad investment for Interjet, as these aircraft have caused them to cancel routes, reduce staff, and lose a huge amount of money. I really do hope they get back in their feet as they are my favorite airline in Mexico, and they've always had the best service. My airpor...

It seems the SSJ saga will finally come to an end, this time from a reliable source, the airline owner. What I don't understand is why they would still keep 2 in the fleet, unless they are talking about selling the whole 22 of them.
