It has not left the ground yet. Same engine as the A320 neo to be delivered later this month and the Bombardier and Comac RJs that are also just about taxi ing around and not flying yet either.

We will have a right ding dong between Embraer Sukhoi Mitsubishi Bombardier Yakolev/irkut and Comac in the small jet market between now and 2020 and thats for sure.

Bombardier C-series are both flying (CS-100 and CS-300). EIS is coming up soon.

Comac C919 just had its rollout. Don't believe its even been powered up yet.

I believe he was referring to Comac's ARJ not the C919.

The Forecast International projections indicate that, based on unit production, Embraer, ATR, Bombardier, and new entrant Mitsubishi will be the leading regional aircraft manufacturers during the 2015-2024 forecast timeframe. Embraer is projected to build 910 regional jetliners during the period. ATR is expected to produce 836 regional turboprops. Bombardier, which produces both jets and turboprops, is forecast to build 696 regional aircraft. Mitsubishi is projected to produce 538 regional jets.

ARJ21 has been flying for years now, and just finished its Chinese certifications (no FAA certs tho).

Its also not really a competitor to the A320/B737/C-series/etc range. Tho, I suppose it is closer in size to the MRJ.

That was my point , the MRJ shouldn't be compared to the C919 though I can see the company moving into the production of larger planes once the MRJ is certified as airworthy.

MRJ is a regional jet in the same class as E-170/190, SuperJet, ARJ21, CRJ700-1000, etc.

It's not in the same class as mainline jets such as 737, 320, MS-21, C-series, or C919.

First MRJ Flight Test Aircraft was finally ferried to Moses Lake in USA, but there is not good news for customers:

Mitsubishi jet delivery pushed back again

NAGOYA -- Initial delivery of Mitsubishi Aircraft's regional passenger plane will be postponed beyond the current target of mid-2018 owing to design changes, it was learned Friday.

The unit of Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has notified partners of the delay. The first Mitsubishi Regional Jet is now likely to be handed off to buyer ANA Holdings in 2019 or later.

The redesign is seen forcing changes to volume production, pushing the initial delivery date back for a fifth time. The latest delay could add to the roughly 300 billion yen ($2.96 billion), including public funds, already spent developing the Japanese-made short- to medium-haul plane.

The first MRJ test aircraft made its maiden flight in November 2015. But Mitsubishi Aircraft said the following month that initial delivery would be rescheduled from the April-June quarter of 2017 to the middle of 2018 to allow for upgrades and additional test items.

More test aircraft have since been added to move development along. Volume production has begun as well. But Mitsubishi Aircraft has taken another look at the MRJ's design to rebalance the aircraft after apparently repositioning certain components. The changes apparently rule out mid-2018 delivery. The delay is not expected to affect ANA's flight plans.

Mitsubishi Aircraft plans to log a total of 2,500 flight hours using five test aircraft to earn a type certificate, a badge of airworthiness. The bulk of this testing will take place at Moses Lake in the U.S. state of Washington, prized for its favorable weather conditions.

The first jet touched down there Wednesday local time, with three more to follow later. Testing will continue in parallel with design changes.
