Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to freeze development of its SpaceJet regional aircraft to focus on other businesses that will bolster profits. The decision will allow it to halve jobs in its commercial aviation business, helping generate cost savings of US$1.15 billion.

Not really about the SpaceJet, which might never be built commercially, but it's about its manufacturer: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is considering restarting production of the discontinued CRJ, beginning with CRJ550 configuration of the CRJ700 for Skywest.
