I understand, that FL has had talks with Bombardier about having CSeries jets in their fleet. Seeing that FL has talk about retiring their 717 fleet ( which is the worlds largest 717 fleet), I believe the CSeries would be the best a/c to replace their 717 fleet. A CSeries has more power than a 717, and would have a more passenger friendly cabin than even their 737s, so is it likely that we will see some CSeries in FL colors?


PS: If FL order CSeries, it is likely I will try to fly on one.

Anything is possible. I don't think the 717's are going anywhere son though. First and foremost FL has alot of labor issues to resolve with the pilots. No contract for 6 years and no raises either.

If FL wants to keep their costs low, then they should stick with as few aircraft-types as possible. I think we'll see FL ordering additional 737's before considering C-series airplanes.

How have they been able to keep the their jets flying without a contract for 6 years and a wage freeze?



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

Because airline labor contracts don't expire, they become "amendable" and folks keep on working while the new contract is hammered out, unless the National Mediation Board declares an "impasse", and certain subsequent things happen.

Why would 717's be retired anytime soon? They're very quiet and fuel-effficient..... Aren't they??


Finally made it to an airline mecca!
