Mitsubishi Aircraft says the MRJ90 remains its priority after media reports said the company was shifting focus to the smaller MRJ70.

Mitsubishi is expected to buy the Bombardier CRJ Program. Bombardier had talks with multiple possible buyers, but is now in exclusive talks with Mitsubishi, according to two persons. The take-over possibly will be announced at this month's Paris Air Show. This would mean the complete end for Bombardier in the commercial aircraft branch.

In the article is stated that two persons said this, so I Don't know how trustworthy this is.

Mitsubishi rebrands its MRJ as SpaceJet. A strange name for a plane that certainly will never fly to outer space! Anyway, we shall rebrand this thread as MRJ/SpaceJet.

Bombardier to suspend its lawsuit against Mitsubishi and eventually drop it once the deal for selling the CRJ programme to Mitsubishi closes.

Mitsubishi Aircraft (Japan) is seeking a sixth postponement on delivering its SpaceJet, with a new target date to be set as soon as November 2019. Outside experts will be consulted to help set the new date, while compensation may be granted to customers.

Bad news for Mitsubishi: the company just announced that Trans States has cancelled its order for 50 M90 Spacejets, and options for 50 more. An order that was unlikely to ever materialise given the scope clause restrictions in the U.S. that limit the size of the aeroplane regional carriers can fly, says US aviation expert Jon Ostrower.

Future discussions will be focused on the scope compliant M100.
