However, as before, there was a problem with the cost of the aircraft - the price of an airplane in the middle of 2013 was 733 950 dollars, which naturally did not satisfy consumers. Among other things, the cramped cabin did not cause passengers a sense of comfort, especially when it came to lengthy air travel.
