Jon Ostrower from FlightBlogger is over at the Paris Air Show and has been doing a great job covering it. Today he posted a video showing the new Sukhoi Superjet.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 can hold 75-95 passengers and is scheduled to start deliveries in the third quarter of 2009. Armenian Armanvia will receive the first planes, followed by Aeroflot. The Flightblogger reports that there are an additional 24 orders from Avia Leasing and another 30 for Malev in Hungary. As of June 2009 there are 124 confirmed orders and an additional 99 options by 11 airlines/leasing companies.

Even though most of the attention is given to the Boeing vs Airbus battle, there are quite a few other aircraft choices out there, other than the two main players. The Airline Blog will be reporting more on other aircraft manufacturers this summer.

That Sukhoi Superjet looks cool. What’s with the pointy nose thing?

The “pointy nose thing” is an extension to house the Pitot tubes. It is used in testing and development to calibrate the pitot tubes on the fuselage. The airflow from the fuselage can affect the readings, and this gives the engineers a true reading for calibration purposes. All newly designed aircraft have them at first for test flights.

Just one correction: not “Armanvia”, but “Armavia”!

I am a frequent traveler, my personal experience says that not all conditions are favorable to travel by air sometimes conditions caused by nature, and sometimes by our problems it results in modification or cancellation of flight ticket. I always prefer to go with Royal Air Moroc Airline because it’s easy to understand Royal Air Moroc change policy and they offer much more flexibility. I’m very thankful to the team of Airlinespolicy.com, who guide me about Royal Air Moroc Airline and its all policy in detail.

Airlines Policy

Air Italy Airline flight, Just amazing — they’ve never been late for me, but Air Italy Airline Cancellation Policy is a little bit difficult to understand. After searching so much about the modification policy, finally, I got a solution by {Airlinespolicy.com }. They have crisp, short, and relevant information about modification, cancellation, check-in, Baggage, and Pet policy. They helped me a lot during the harsh Covid-19 time. I am very thankful to the team of airlinespolicy.
