There have been a fair number of articles such as that one recently. They're just testing the water IMO, because the time is coming to make a decision regarding the next major project for them. They now have 25% of the executive jet market, up from zero five years ago. it would not take very much commercial demand to support a 130 seater that in executive form could match the G650 and upper Bombardier and Dassault products.
I'll wager they will announce a new aircraft before year end, but maybe they'll delay until the next Dubai airshow.
Does the FAA flight attendant rule - 1 per 50 seats - affect this market? Seems to me that a domestic airline would prefer to have new jets seat exactly 100, 150 or 200.
