Airline executives call it an absolute peach and passengers will just love it. It will be a 787 on steroids! (www.airlineratings.com) More...

Dumb idea to call it a Superjet in the headline.

Its "super" and its a "jet"??

And it's essentially a bus that goes in the air, but you'd still not call it an Airbus. Calling it a Superjet invites confusion with Sukhoi's Superjet.

I have to agree with you on that one. I wouldn't want my product confused with the Sukhoi product.

At first I wondered WTH would Qatar order Sukhoi Superjets...it might be a super jet but it is not a Superjet.
And WTH have an engine with a fan as big as a 737 fuselage..I'm betting they could make 4 engines half that size and twice the fuel burn efficency numbers.

Doubling the engines, regardless of size, will double acquisition costs, double maintenance and nearly double fuel burn - facts that airlines are learning the hard way and why 4-engine airplanes are disappearing from the skies and the order books.

I wonder how this "Superjet" will fare head to head with Airbus A 350 once they complete the inevitable debugging stages. Will have to wai another 3 years or so.

A bit grouchy?

Sorry but I disagree.. People that want "Just a basic flight and a movie" can travel on other airlines.. People that want first class service, can travel on Qatar.

That's what I said. Sorry for the complication.
