    So instead of banning Rocket and Titanium sales to the US... double the price... and use the extra revenue earned to subsidise areas that are hurt by American sanctions...

    The American taxpayers pay the interest on the bank loans to the US government, not the principals the MIC & NASA charges for their "goods & services". The $ in the US official budget mostly come from the printing press, taxes paid by businesses, fines, direct weapons sales, & import tariffs.

    And still about interjet

    https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/analysis-sukhoi-offers-superjet-upgrades-to-appease-452342/



    Sukhoi is offering cabin densification as well as fuel-saving winglets for Interjet's Superjet 100s, in ongoing efforts to persuade the Mexican airline to retain the fleet after it faced well-documented operational issues with the type.


    "The modifications are on the table, we are committed to doing that with Interjet," SuperJet International (SJI) senior vice-president of commercial Stewart Cordner tells FlightGlobal in an interview. SJI, which is majority-owned by Sukhoi, is responsible for marketing the Superjet to Western customers.

    A proposed seat densification will grow the number of seats on Interjet's SSJ100s to as many as 108, from 93 seats currently, says Cordner.

    The manufacturer is also offering to retrofit winglets – branded "saberlets" on Interjet's fleet – to improve take-off and landing performance. He expects the saberlets to be certified by June 2019, with the additional seating modifications to follow in the months afterwards.

    "It will certainly be in 2019 for sure," says Cordner.

    Interjet said in September it will phase out "some" of the SSJ100s without specifying the number of aircraft affected, after denying a FlightGlobal report that it was in talks with Sukhoi to sell the SSJ100 fleet. It declines to comment when asked by FlightGlobal how many aircraft it plans to phase out, saying that it was being finalised.

    The carrier currently operates 21 SSJ100s, with one aircraft in storage. It is not clear if all the aircraft will receive the additional seats. Interjet declines to comment, saying that "nothing has been discussed" regarding seat configuration.

    The move by Interjet to ditch some of its Superjets follow a history of mechanical issues with the aircraft since it began operating the type in 2013. In early 2017, the airline was forced to ground half of its fleet, for repairs to defects on the stabiliser nodes. Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that the airline was forced to take four SSJ100s out of service and was cannibalising them for parts to keep the remaining fleet operational.

    Sources familiar with the situation say Interjet could reduce its SSJ100 fleet to as few as seven aircraft - or about a third of its Superjet fleet today. (...)

    I'v heard already this" sources familiar+ almost certainly+ with high probability + we have proofs but we cannot show them. It is interesting that company close to US and CAATSA suddenly want to withdraw. Butt it is not that company which says this. Bloomberg does. Werent those same talking about death ofRussiane conomy?

    BTW SJ100 has ~520 orders and ~150 deliveries. And only one "reliable sources" not company complains against it? Others are idiots or what?

    perhaps MoD can order tankers based on 4 engine Il-96 to help organize production or 2 PD-35 powered one?

    If you look around the world a lot of good planes were saved simply because the military bought them and paid for production facilities and upgrades when needed... it would be useful for Russian civilian aircraft companies if the Russian military started using some of their aircraft too as this would also promote Russian components to be used more extensively than they are currently...

    Foreign customers of course might prefer foreign components in some areas but they can pay for that and sort out issues and problems therein created...

    Twin engined Il-96s would be awesome...

    There are many countries which are not in best relations to USA/EU thus Il-96 can find its niche As for tankers - clearly range/ceiling is much better than Il476, Im not sure about possibility to resume serial production tho. Serias of 4 engines tankers coul dhelp Il to build prod line, experienced team and prepare to 2 engine...
