I'm so happy this plane is turning out to be rather succesfull at least in Russia. I hope Mexico will be happy enough to spread the word out and get it flying all over the world. It's really a very nice and comfortable aircraft.

AFAIK, Interjet is very happy with their SSJs. They state that it has a dispatch reliability of 99%.

Yes but let's hope they still are in a few years. Really hope the plane can put up a fight with the Canadians and the Brazilians :)

Efficiency is one thing but you better believe that the Western Hemisphere has a tendency of buying Western planes.    There are basically going to be at least 3 manufacturers targeting the 100-130 pax market.  Boeing has all but given up on that market and are targeting larger planes (even in the 737)
