I know that the Sukhoi Superjet 100 not have came to traffic yet, but have someone heared anything about the fuel burn? Or have a guess maybe.

HIGH, very HIGH, unless the cannot get relief from anti-supersonic rules over sovereign airspace, in which low, vanishingly low-ZERO. I'm in the bizjet business and no one I know sees it as a viable project for real life customers.

I think the OP meant the Superjet, which looks like the Embraer ERJ-170 / Bombardier C-Series, as opposed to the SSBJ, the Supersonic Bizjet that Gulfstream and Sukhoi were talking about a few years ago. I'd be very impressed if it could get supersonic though.

Last I heard the a/c was in test, but I've not seen anything from the flight test program yet, so we may have to wait until service entry (or at least until the FCOMs leak onto the net) to see some performance figures
