    I love the look of this little bird but why oh why would anyone buy it?

    With Superjet and AN-148 programs much further advanced this model has absolutely no future and Aircraft in service will be extremely rare. In fact I predict right now that this one will be the only Liner that ever sees Commercial Service. Good luck getting spares for it in a few years time!
