Really surprised by the size of this order. Vistajet has always talked about growth coming from the BRIC countries, can't see how Europe can sustain all of that large cabin capacity. Great news for bizav though.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Congrats to both companies for this historical order!
"By any standard, this is an historic order for Bombardier," says Steve Ridolfi, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "It goes without saying that we are thrilled VistaJet has again chosen to grow their fleet with the industry-leading Global family," Ridolfi adds.

How is this order going to affect the C-series? Will "Bomber" use this to further develop its commercial arm or are they going to concentrate now on their business division due to the lack of interest in their commercial division?
I think the former. BBD does not have a cash flow issue. But if the C-Series program take longer than expected to start generating revenues, this order will definitely improve BBD's credit rating. IMO, BBD has an excellent offering in the C-Series and they will continue to develop their commercial division.

Quoting g500 (Thread starter): Bombardier secured a similar order from Netjets not too long ago, and Netjets finally has a good competitor on the long- haul market
Did Vista Jet make this order post NBAA Conference? I don't recall reading about anything like this in the daily NBAA Newspapers during NBAA.
Netjets just took delivery of their first Global 6000 during NBAA in Orlando last month. The Global 6000 flew in as C-GLUP in Net Jets paint, but while on static display it wore N160QS - it had to go back to Canada after NBAA for a couple final touch ups but Net Jets pretty much otherwise took their delivery then.

There are the airlines we talk about, and now the Netjets and Vistajets putting the final nails in the coffin for the First Class that we knew of. These two will be the First Class of the future: book on demand, leave when you want and come back when you want, no hassles, and even economical when traveling in large teams. Very interesting trend.

Quoting MD-90 (Reply 12): F on an airliner is still a lot cheaper than a long range bizjet.
For one person, yes. But when you put eight or nine people on a long range bizjet, the numbers start to even out. The bizjet will always be at least somewhat more expensive, but it's got other benefits that the airlines just can't offer, and that helps the business case quite a bit.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day

Plus, you don't have to deal with airline schedules and routes. I agree...this could very well eat into the F market.
