BAladdy,
with the current Brussels Airlines situation and the Sukhoi Superjet situation, the ARJs are most likely thrown a lifeline, the big challenge is getting crew for the type, particularly pilots.

According to the information on Jethroís fleet listings. There are 14 RJ85ís registered to WX however how many of those are actually still in service. Can anyone clarify the status of the following aircraft:

EI-RJD - Arrived in NWI on 01SEP18. Does anyone know if this is for engineering check/storage or maybe repaint?
EI-RJF - Has been parked at NWI since 04MAR18, is said to be currently engineless. Has this aircraft been PWFU?
EI-RJI - Last operated flight info found was back in mid JAN. Has the aircraft been placed into storage or PWFU?
EI-RJU - Last operated flight info found was back in early AUG.
EI-WXA - Hasnít flown for over two years guessing PWFU.


EI-RJD arrived at Norwich and remains outside the KLM hangars
EI-RJF has entered the KLM hangars and heard going back into service
EI-WXA remains NWI north side very withdrawn state had been told she was due for the chop but nothing yet

It's my understanding that a couple of the RJ's will be in Aer Lingus colours and wet leased, the rest will be used to fill the holes left by the Sukhoi fleet and expansion of ACMI deals.

I'm aware that Brussels Airlines / Cityjet wish to de-emphasise SSJ 100 flying due to reliability issues and availability of spare parts. Could someone perhaps tell me

1 - Will all aircraft remain in use until March 2019 or is there intended to be a gradual reduction of SSJ 100 use between now and then ?
2 - Do Cityjet have at least some basic store of spare parts to be able to fix the most common of SSJ problems or do they have to order everything from Sukhoi on a when-aircraft-breaks basis ? Is this maintenance base in Brussels, Dublin or somewhere else ? I'm trying to figure out whether SSJ flights out of Brussels will likely be more reliable than those from elsewhere

Many thanks in advance for any info

That the SSJ100 will be replaced at Brussels Airlines has been known for a while. The more interesting question is what Cityjet will do with the SSJ100s now.

Superjets are gone March 2019, Or earlier, either Cityjet replace with other aircraft. New operator comes Or Brussels will operate themselves...

OUCH..
One of the SU9’s (EI-FWG), that had been operating from BRU appears to have already been replaced by a CRJ1000 (EC-LPG) leased from Air Nostrum.

SN have updated there planned S19 Schedule. Flights originally showing as operated by a SU9 are now showing as being operated by a RJ85. A RJ85 is also now showing as operating all flights currently operated by BM on behalf of SN and as operating a number of flights that had been planned to operate by a SN A319. 8 RJ85’s would be required to operate all these flights. Are they all going to be from WX or could BM be adding some RJ85’s to the fleet?

WX have terminated the contract with Sukhoi for there SSJ aircraft. A couple of the aircraft have already begun to be returned to Sukhoi in VCE. The remainder are parked at either DUB or SNN and will be returned to Sukhoi in the near future.

I'm not too aligned with what's going on at cityjet so I apologize if this is a stupid question. What will happen to the RJ85's now that the SSJ's have gone (thank god). The original plan from what I can understand was to phase out the RJ's with the SSJ aircraft so what will happen to the RJ's now? Will they be replaced or will their service be extended (and if so until when?).

Thanks,
James

I'm not sure even Cityjet will have an answer to that. If it wasn't for LCY restrictions then I'd imagine they'd standardise on the CRJ.

They'll probably continue with a small fleet of Avros for the meantime to see how the EI tie in goes and what if anything falls out from Brexit.

The question will then become if they should replace the avro or pull out of LCY. Can't imagine they make that much in this day in a age to operate a subfleet of e jets or a220s just for LCY ops.

Auditors have conflicts of interest if they start giving advice to companies they advise. The only thing I can think of, is whether the question about being a going concern is under discussion

From RT…, 17th April 2020

The High Court has appointed a interim examiner to the Dublin-based regional airline CityJet. [...] The judge said while the company was insolvent and unable to pay its debts as they fall due, he accepted evidence from an independent expert that the airline has a reasonable prospect of survival if certain steps are taken.

This has got the potential to go badly wrong. An insolvency filing will, I would be fairly certain, give SAS rights to terminate the contract it has with CityJet - at which point it is game over. If the CRJ900s then get dumped back to their owners by CityJet's examiners, the other SAS regional supplier - XFly/Nordica/Regional Jet or whatever it's now called - would be able to get a much better deal on those aircraft in the current climate to offer them more cheaply to SAS. It's not good for all those involved and the future of CityJet is now entirely in SAS' hands.

If Iím not mistaken... Cityjet is owned by Falko... the leasing company that owns the aircraft. Theyíll be putting together a good solution and SAS has no appetite to lose itsí regional flying.

SAS wouldn't end up losing its regional flying - they'd just end up with all of it with XFly.

Still, no point in much more conjecture so let's see what happens.
