Delivery delayed of SSJ-100

It seems that the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 got infected with the “delay” virus from its fetal friend B787. Mr. Michael Bagdasarov of Armavia is right on his comment as the delay might be a strategic operational advantage for Armavia since there is no current high demand for more aircraft, and practically till the time again for the summer schedule.
In fact, B787 is not only a friend of Sukhoi SuperJet 100 considering the fact that there is an agreement between Sukhoi and Boeing since 19th of December 2002. The affiliation with Boeing may be the actual source of infection.

  2. Sure, better late than never is a positive slogan.
    However, the impact of that slogan on the customers and the financial results of the manufacturer is a totally different story. The delay would negatively impact the operational plans of the customers. Financially compensating those unsatisfied customers by the manufacturer will definitely have negative impact on its bottom line.
    Definitely, it is not a good idea for that pattern to exist for many years.
