Sitting across the aisle from me was a Bombardier engineer who told me that he had been riding with the plane since delivery while they shake out any problems. He said it takes about 6 weeks to "settle the plane" but that he might stay for up to a year.

I like them. The slim and slender fusalage looks nice, and the props complement it!
|Quoting Airwave (Reply 8):|
Is this SOP for many/most airlines/manufacturers with new deliveries? Or is SA a special case; maybe they requested the presence of the engineer?

...the plane touched down at 9pm making us look like fools, and it turned out the plane was tech, not adverse weather!
