• SSJ100

    It has been discovered that Russian airline Aeroflot has only 1 Sukhoi SSJ100 Superjet left operational out of the 7 they had. An 8th one suffered a catastrophic fire after an emergency landing killing more than half the occupants.

    Also, Aeroflot has sent an Airbus A330-200 to Iran for repairs as parts have become unavailable. Iran has extensive experience at dealing with sanctions and probably can pull it off. However planes repaired or maintained under such conditions will not be able to execute any flights to Europe and the Americas.

    The airline has also started to canibalize a nearly brand new A350 with minimal mileage on it, to repair other A350s.
