Mitsubishi MRJ loses big regional jet order

Mitsubishi Aircraft has lost an important order for 20 Mitsubishi Regional Jets, but the Japanese jet maker says other customers are sticking with it.

The aircraft manufacturing affiliate of the giant Japanese conglomerate lost a 2014 order from Eastern Airlines for 20 MRJs with purchase rights for 20 more.

Mitsubishi Aircraft, which has a Seattle engineering center and flight test operation in Moses Lake, confirmed the loss to the Business Journal. The deal appeared to be in jeopardy last month.
