Why not offer the CRJ as a low capital cost model, and the MRJ as the low operating cost model?
There is room for both within every scope clause operation.
Reengining with heavier engines is possible for the CRJ, but the fuselage would need to be stretched forward of the wing to counter the weight aft.
It's too late to do that now.
MRJ is too large for many markets, their needs to be a refined 50 seater in the market … that does not describe the ERJ'S
