Bombardier CRJ-700

Following the success of the CRJ100/200 series, Bombardier Aerospace produced larger variants in order to compete with larger regional aircraft such as the Fokker 70/Fokker 100 or the BAe 146 family, and competed later with the Embraer E-Jet family. In 1995, the CRJ-X development was expected to cost C$300 million (US$200 million). By 1999, Bombardier had invested C$650 million (US$440 million) to develop the 70-seat CRJ700, and was to invest C$200 million more to develop the CRJ-900, stretched to 90 seats. The CRJ700 was then priced $24-25 million, and the CRJ900 was to be priced $28-29 million.
