Could be (based on) a Yak-200/210, too? From the size and the engines it's a good match:

The other thing that I thought was interesting was that the plane is low wing, but the nacelles are still slung, so the fuselage would sit way off the ground.

Reminds me of the Fisher Price jet, which is basically an egg-shaped DC-9

this one was on the front page of Belgian bussiness newspaper "De Standaard" today.
(article was the rivalry between Brussels Airlines and Ryanair in Brussels Airport).

That's pretty cool ! I think Ryanair would have the upper hand, in sheer numbers....you guys buy about 4 737s for the price of one F-35 !

No it's not. I've had a couple of issues. They may well provide a perfectly adequate service for a lot of people but as I said I've had a few issues whilst flying on business. The other major budget provider on the other had was excellent when a couple of problems cropped up
