However this a ploy to get EMB to offer a better deal on the 195 family. We would much rather have the E-jets vs a Bombardier product. BB regretted pulling the CRJ's from the desert for the CO operation. We had more MX issues on the Bombardier's than the EMB's.

Fun times.

If the C Series can deliver on all its promises, they should be looking at it. I guess the deal would be attractive to BB.

And yes, it would put pressure on Embraer - and also put pressure on Airbus.  Smile

You forget that this is a completely new plane that is being evaluated....rejecting it on the basis of maintenance issues with a different type of plane made by the same manufacturer is not really the best way to go about this, although it certainly will be a factor to keep in mind...

As the article stats that they are also looking at the 737 which they say is has the longest range of any production narrow body. They like that because they could open up new markets that the otherwise could not. This is sure to be a fierce battle. It's neat to see the regional manufactures not competing for market share with B & A....

Anybody have info on the C-series?? Two wing mounted engines? Four, five, or six abreast in coach? Range? Windows larger than a sandwich and placed higher than a the passenger's belly? (Too many hours on the CRJ...sorry!)

I think it's great news. It'll be interesting to see how it all turns out. From the article it looks as though the Airbus leases are up between 2013 and 2017, so with the CSeries EIS around 2013, it may work. They have a cool website for it: www.nowisthefuture.com

Interesting, I hope the CSeries will get some additional orders soon.

Republic and United have stated interest as well as Mexicana, SAS and Air Tran. I also believe LH would order some more to replace the 737 classic in their fleet. Interesing times indeed, hopefully Bombardier can fill the gap left by the merger of Boeing and MDD and we will soon have a third big player in the narrow body segment (although the CSeries only competes on the lower end with Airbus and Boeing but still).



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

For most of YX's operations I think that the C-series would do the job, but my hope that they go with Boeing products for both YX and F9 ops with the E-170's and 190's still in the mix. But I have a feeling that they will stay with Airbus.


I miss the 60's & 70's when you felt like a guest on the plane not cattle like today
