Hitting one of the news headlines last week was the world's next great passenger jet - the Japanese Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ). Being Japan's first commercial jet in half a century, the MRJ made its maiden test flight last Wednesday which took off from Nagoya Airport and was in the air for about 1.5-hour.


The MRJ set to be the next generation regional jet which offer both top-class operational economy and outstanding cabin comfort, have a four-abreast seat configuration, with large overhead bins, and also feature a slim seat that offers heightened comfort to passengers.

“Operational performance of the MRJ was far better than expected. We had a significantly comfortable flight,” said Pilot Yasumura, who served as captain.
