ua900 wrote:CSeries seems to do reasonably well in Europe now in lieu of A319s, though way too late in the market, but what about the Americas? With Embraer's rise, it seems that LatAm and increasingly North America have picked E170/5s over Bombardier, just like the E190/5s in Europe.
Given that the E-Series was hugely successful in pushing out the CRJs over the last couple of years, I'd say Embraer is the #1 with CSeries as a distant #2 and everyone else is depending on more development needed and/or government orders within their respective country / client countries.

raylee67 wrote:MRJ's delivery date is basically unknown and again its order book is dominated by SkyWest. By the way, why does SkyWest need 100 E2 and then 100 MRJs? JAL and ANA, while having a genuine need for an aircraft like the MRJ, is probably making the orders to support Japanese products.

Is the 787 still grounded? Have they fixed that battery problem yet?
Is the A400M flying again since one example lost power on 3 engines and took 4 human lives?
You can say whatever you want about the SSJ, but compared to the A380, 787, A400M, MRJ programs, Russia really didn't do too bad for a nation that did not design a commercial airline for a very long time. The SSJ is not an instant success, but it could have done much, much worse.
