No surprise, looks eerily similar to the nose of the 78!

They can’t even get the Comac C919 to fly without issues and it’s been being built and tested how many years??

Would you fly on that aircraft? For me it's a solid negative.

The real question is, will you buy that aircraft?
Even the more recent Russian Superjet didn't sell well...
I am quite certain the only reason small Chinese airlines bought C919 was because of substantial government subsidize (or they can't afford or get governmental approval to buy second hand Boeing/Airbus jets), and maybe national pride...
At least Aeroflot have many Russian airliners, where larger Chinese airlines such as China Southern, Air China, China Eastern have 0 Chinese built airliners.
