Yeah, I think Embraer is really on to something with their 170/190 series... They sure will have some prosperous years before Bombardier catch up (if they will.) I can't understand why Bombardier cancelled the BRJ-X program? Which they now have begun developing again after a couple of years as the C-series if I understand it correctly?rgrds fredrik
