  1. Strange chair configuration 3+2 off centre and at Business it’s 2+2. Don’t think the trolly dollys will thank the designers for that.

  2. 3+2 is standard for such aircrafts: ie Fokker 70/100,and Bombardier C100/300 will be 2+3/ and 2+2 at business class.

    Smaller Embraer 145 used to have 2+1

    Anyway nice aircraft, bigger diversity in the air is nice.

  3. This aircraft reminds me of the DC-9. If it can fly like a DC-9 then they will be around for a long time.
    I imagine they left the bulkhead out because it takes up much space on a small plane.

    • actually every plane has a provision for paper (even American ones) it is for the preflight checklist and usually also has pilots notes added to it according to a mate of mine that flies Qantas jets. Although some have been pushing for the removal of the paper versions, some overseas companies have landed themselves in hot water for using `electronic flight bag’ notes here- they are still a requirement to fly here in paper form and overseas pilots that break the rules can (and have been) banned from flying into our airports again

  4. Russian planes lost a lot of market share after ’90. If they will combine their cell structure with british motors and USA avionics, something great will appear…
