Yes, you are right, thou by 4 cm only.
The problem with CSeries is its price: it's more then 2 times larger.

No, that's not true.

SSJ is much wider than MRJ. It's 3.24 m - only 4 cm difference with CSeries.
It has 3+2 seats setting too, so both CSeries's and SSJ's widths have to be close.

you are correct, it is much closer to the C series, although smaller

CityJet expects to firm SSJ options

Irish regional airline CityJet is expecting to firm half of its 16 Sukhoi Superjet 100 options in 2018, after becoming the European launch operator of the type in June...

...“We will certainly look at our options in 2018. It is impossible to say how many we will go for, but I am reasonably confident that it will be 50% of our 16 options in that [two-year] timeframe,” CityJet executive chairman Pat Byrne said, speaking at the European Regions Airline Association General Assembly in Madrid.

Four months on from receiving its first SSJ, CityJet is satisfied with the aircraft’s performance. Byrne said the phase-in was “very cautious,” but the SSJ has performed a number of ad hoc charters and a 30-day wet-lease with Finnair.

“We flew a pretty tough schedule [with Finnair]. Although I sweated a lot, we managed to achieve 100% dispatch reliability on a pretty taxing schedule. That gave us a lot more confidence in the aircraft,” Byrne said.

“It’s performed very well, better than the book says. I am pleasantly surprised by the fuel burn; it’s delivered fantastic numbers. The aircraft is a joy to fly. Our pilots love it. Passenger reports have all been positive, with no negative reaction whatsoever. People are surprised when they get on board. They don’t regard it as a regional jet—they regard it as a true narrowbody.

“The engine is sweet. It really is a fantastic engine and we have had zero issues with the engine so far. It has performed remarkably well. The engine was one of our key criteria, it turned it for me.”

However, the entry into service has not been glitch-free. CityJet had to adapt to its first fly-by-wire aircraft and has suffered the glitches that come with operating new technologies.

“Of course we’ve had issues. You always do with a new aircraft type. Some of them have been our glitches—finger trouble with the new technology—and some of them have been down to the manufacturer, but the collaboration has been absolutely fabulous,” Byrne said.

The technical issues were “small, silly little things,” which were quickly resolved. Existing SSJ operator Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet has also been guiding CityJet on what the next problems might be and when they are likely to occur, based on its in-service experience.

“Sophisticated aircraft like this always get problems with avionics. None of them have been major, serious, structural, or mechanical; they’ve all been irritating little things, but the more we know about them, the more forewarned and anticipated they are,” Byrne said.

The CityJet CEO is confident the SSJ will become popular in Europe, becoming the “weapon of choice” for legacy carriers looking to either buy aircraft directly or source them on wet lease.

“This aircraft is going to be phenomenal for us. We believe it will definitely prove itself as the ideal wet-lease platform for legacy carriers in Europe. I think we will see quite a number flying in Europe. It really beats the socks off the competition. It’s lighter, more fuel efficient and has more passenger appeal.”

NASA and Roskosmos - not ceased cooperation.
Astronauts fly (American astronauts on Russian rockets).
TU 144 - is not removed from the project (still in the balance: is).
I do not know - NASA uses it or not (but not written off the plane from the project).

The plane hasn't flown for over 7 years now.

Brussels Airlines to wet-lease Superjets





Brussels Airlines will expand the use of hired-in regional aircraft as it phases out a fleet of Avro RJ100s, the airline said Jan. 12.

The Belgian flag carrier will use three Sukhoi SSJ100 Superjets from Ireland-based CityJet beginning in April, when the aircraft start a two-year contract.

The Belgian airline’s management made a strategic decision two years ago to phase out regional aircraft, deciding instead to focus on Airbus A320-family single-aisle aircraft for medium-haul and A330s for long-haul routes.

As part of this program, the carrier disposed of four Avro RJ100 regional jets last year, with the remaining eight scheduled to leave the fleet by November 2017.

Some of the Avro’s duties will be taken on by A319s and A320s, VP-media relations Geert Sciot, but some routes required smaller aircraft. “We went onto the market a few months ago for a 100-seater replacement for the RJ100s. Several regional operators showed interest but, at the end of the day, [Irish regional] CityJet won.”

The Dublin-based airline won the contract on the basis of several criteria, including their previous experience of operating aircraft in the 100-seat category, he said. “It wasn’t a price-driven decision.”

The Irish company will fly the services with their own crews, but to Brussels Airlines’ cabin service standards. The routes to be flown have yet to be decided.

CityJet is the sole Western European operator of the Russian regional jet. It has 15 on order and plans initially to use them on services for other operators. Like Brussels Airlines, CityJet is phasing out a fleet of Avro RJs.

Brussels Airlines already uses aircraft from two UK airlines to help fulfill regional services. Flybe provides Bombardier Q400s, while bmi Regional operates Embraer E145s, both on an ACMI basis. Brussels Airlines and bmi Regional also have a codeshare arrangement.

Russia set to sell SuperJets to Iran

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak has confirmed an unspecified Iranian airline will shortly acquire twelve SSJ 100-95s from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (Ramenskoye).

Earlier this year, the Mehr news agency quoted the Secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines, Maqsoud Asadi Samani, as saying the Russian manufacturer had applied to the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of the Treasury for an export license concerning the sale of SuperJets to Iran. Sukhoi has not given any official comment on the alleged application thus far.

According to TASS, Novak told Rossiya24 news that the Russian Federation is also interested in establishing a facility to manufacture components for its aircraft if need be. The proposal also includes the joint production of Il-114 modernized turboprop aircraft.

I'm really surprised Iran hadn't ordered them already, but I guess it would have involved the same issues with regards to technology transfers as Airbus and Boeing have had.

You are exactly right! But the situation is even worse (or funnier)! Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company needs to obtain a license from the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to sell its Super Jet 100 aircraft to Iran.
Airbus and Boeing already got the OFAC's permission. Sukhoi still awaits.

You may ask - what is the connection between Sukhoi and OFAC? There is no direct connection. But... United Aircraft Corporation (the parent company for Sukhoi) employs Pratt&Whitney engines on their new MC-21 airliner. And P&W as we all know, is a supplier for F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II ... so, Sukhoi awaits permission
