    It's understandably a big step forward. Commercial airline aircraft industry is one of the last major industries that China, and other emerging countries, is still dependent on developed countries.

    Beautiful looking jet. The most modern design in this class compared to A320 and B737.

    Well, A320neo and B737 MAX are the latest versions in this weight class as well, which are arguably just as modern in most ways if not more so than C919, so I don't think C919 could be called the "most modern" as such...

    C919 should be competitive, at least. Hopefully development doesn't suffer any more delays.

    737Max ? lol. Essentially a 70s design. A320neo is better, but just a re-engined version of A320.
    Can't wait to see how they can squeeze the promised efficiency out of the new engine from 737Max. I predict it'll have a hard time surpassing the 'success' of 787.

    Well, C919 uses a variant of the same engine which A320neo and 737MAX uses, the LEAP-1. And aerodynamically speaking, all three of the aircraft aren't that different, in fact C919 could be mistaken for looking like an A320 or 737. It is the materials, avionics, and internals of all the aircraft which are important, and in that regards A320neo and 737MAX are leveraging the same latest technology as C919.
