From the MAKS show Bombardier have secured another commitment for the CSeries

Russian lessor Ilyushin Finance has signed a tentative agreement to take up to 30 Bombardier CSeries twinjets, a potential landmark deal for the type.

Ilyushin Finance is to acquire seven CS300s and three CS100s under a pact - so far amounting to a letter of intent - which includes options and purchase rights on another 20 aircraft.

This is the first time Ilyushin Finance have opted for a deal of this size with a Western airframer.

Interesting. I wonder if these already have a home.

Every new order for the C Series puts a grin on my face. I have great hopes for the plane.

A LOI for 10 firms and 20 options... I wonder is this is a new order or one of the 2 'undisclosed customer' orders at the show?
From the article: 'an entirely new agreement which was originally set to be outlined at Paris in June.'

I think Bombardier's shift in sales strategy towards getting smaller orders into a couple of dozen customers was the right one. It reminds me of the creative and low risk sales campaigns Airbus was required to give airlines as they were first starting out. Airbus sold NWA 10 firm + 90 options with NWA not needing to decide immediately on whether to lease or buy, as well as a clause that allowed them to return any of the first 10 aircraft at any time within 1 year of taking them. That "little" order of 10 went on to become well over 150 Airbus aircraft.

Interesting that the options are twice the order.

Yes!

And if Bombardier can gain a large number of orders, 20 or more, it becomes a question of how many of the orders will 'explode' like that not if any will... Now if Bombardier could 'seed' DL (LH will look at LZ's results) and a few others...

Lightsaber
