There was also an IT issue for the left engine!
Contaminated fuel is know as a cause of engine electronic malfunctions.
Can you explain a bit more?
Thanks

One of the most documented cases is a CX A330 with P&W engines who had electronic problems on both engines after tanking contaminated fuel.

Chances of having two, unrelated engine problems on the same flight are as slim as winning the lottery 5 times in a row.

CRJ 1000 is not the best aircraft to replace the SSJ. I hope it's only for a short period while waiting for Embraer 90 or...Airbus A220? Let us dream...

I fear that the CRJ is there to stay quite a while. The SSJ contract was for two years...

...well let's rather say that this is what the internal communication dept of SN says of it. ;)

I've rarely seen an airline choosing a seat that isn't yet certified but that still is for sale on the market. :?
It actually happens all the time. Each time something is changed to the basic off the shelf model, seats require new certification (can be 'minor' if it's just a special new fabric used or something or it can be extensive if something more structural is customized). And plenty of airlines order customized models of existing models (also SN). And in addition the cabin as a whole also needs to be certified again depending on what has been changed.

Btw SFD is in the proces of its cabin retrofit (it was partly stripped of its cabin anyway as a donor for SFC and SFB), that's not because LH still has to decide on which seats to put in there...
