Here's Why Bombardier Says Its New Passenger Jet Will Crush The Competition
Posted by: DP
Date: September 16, 2013 02:07PM
Bombardier's new passenger jet has completed its maiden test flight, marking a major milestone in its development.

The Canadian plane maker is better known for its smaller business jets, but it says that huge opportunity in the 100 to 150-seat jet market drove it to go bigger. Yet it's hard to believe that a new entrant can take so much market share, especially when its competition is so established. The 737 and A320 are among the most successful jets ever made, and Boeing and Airbus have shown over the past decades that they can deliver the goods. Their construction and maintenance networks are in place and proven.


God bless 'em... Quite an investment to make in that market. But who knows, especially if it's more fuel efficient, etc.

It's not like there aren't Bombardier planes already flying around. The CRJ-200, CRJ-700 and CRJ-900 are all flown heavily by regional carriers.

Competition is good. The Bombardiers appear to be well made aircraft.

It seems Bombardier is (as Embraer has already) trying to serve the market segment addressed by the smaller 737 & A320 variants. The latter are very old designs (though the A320 is newer than the 737), albeit very updated in terms of systems and wing/tail design. A clean sheet design such as Bombardier's will probably be a more efficient solution. Something Boeing and Airbus might have to do eventually as well.

How will this compete with the Boeing 737max? It just went into service this spring and is also a lighter, quieter, more fuel efficient narrow body.

It'll be interesting to see the numbers play out between the two (if they haven't already). I'd suspect the Bombardier will be more efficient. But a large part of the 737's appeal is the existing support (common crew type ratings, airport infrastructure, etc.). And Boeing has a more experienced sales force in this market segment (which could make the difference if the numbers are close).

The Bombardier jets will compete with smaller planes -- The Embraer 190s, 175s, and CRJ-700/900s. They aren't intended to compete with the 737MAX, which push 200 passengers.

The 737Max 7 (there are 3 models of this plane, different sizes) seats around 126-140.

Bombardier planes are actually pretty widespread, just not in this size category. They're pretty common amongst regional 'puddle-jumpers' though. Usually they're turbo-props rather than jets. I'll have to check with my sales guys to see if we've pursued them as a customer. Competition is good.

"That aircraft was silent. Absolutely silent."

Amazing. If true, it would be the first new model plane I don't hate.

If there's a multi-billion dollar defense contract behind it, Boeing will make your breakfast.

If having to fly smaller planes, I avoid Bombandiers as a plague and always choose Embraer. The difference in comfort is enormous.

Not sure if this applies to all airlines or only those that I fly.
