Doubt that this Japanese product will hit the US market. Especially after boeing bought so many interests in Embraer commercial aviation.
How exactly does that work, Boeing was unable to prevent Airbus and Embraer from selling a/c into the US domestic market, how are they going to prevent the Japanese?
The mrj looks way too thin to sell on the us market.it looks thinner then a crj .
Its made for asían markets and customers.
I prefer to believe that the scope clauses will be adapted for the e175 replacement with e2s.
Seat width for the M100 is 47cm or 18.5" vs. a narroer 18.3" for the E2.
Actually, the E2 is thinner. The MRJ has no underfloor luggage and an extended tail for baggage, so it looks thinner. In fact, the M100 has an 11 cm wider cabin than the E2.https://airinsight.com/from-mitsubishi- ... s-changed/https://simpleflying.com/embraer-e2-vs-airbus-a220/
The E175 was not made in a vacuum, the E175 was
When the E175E2 was launched in 2013 with Skywest's provisional order for 100, the design concept was that the new aircraft would stay within the 86K lb. limit. As development progressed, Embraer was struggling sticking to the weight budget (due to the heavier engines) and staying within the program's financial budget. Original design plans called for a new, CFRP wing and use of lighter weight (but more expensive) aluminum alloys to build the fuselage. Due to budget constraints, Embraer made a decision not to pursue those weight-saving measures and hoped that potential customers would make the scope limitation (based on MTOW) go away.
Embraer, Skywest and Skywest's mainline airline customers had years to work this scope issue, but nothing happened. Therefore, Skywest canceled their provisional order in 2018. Most importantly, no other regional airline, or their mainline airline customers saw fit to order the E175E2 since it was launched in 2013. It has been 7 years since the E175E2 has been on offer, yet as of today, Embraer does not have a single active order for the plane.
Embraer needs a launch customer first. As noted before, the E170 was purpose built for scope. When scope opened up more, the E-175 took over the market.
This time both Mitsubishi and Embraer brazenly ignored scope and neither received any leniency. Mitsubishi adapted by stretching the M70 almost a meter and repositioning the rear pressure bulkhead to get the most out of the scope weight.
Embraer needs an E2-170. Something built for scope. The extra stretch won't be accepted. The M100 will have fewer comfort+ seats than the original E-175 because that is what is required to meet scope. Embraer stretched the E2-175 vs E-175, partially to have more luggage space (M100 will allow 30 more bags in cargo than E2-175). But longer won't meet weight.
I'd like more space, but I'm betting no scope expansion.
Winter is coming.
