SkyWest will be buying 100 Mitsubishi Regional Jets. These airplanes seat 70 to 90 people and compete head-on with the CRJ-700/900 and Embraer 170/175/190/195 families. Seems to me that Bombardier really loses out here, because SkyWest flies only CRJs in that size today. I bet Mitsubishi handed out a smoking deal. What do you think?
