The Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, is currently on an official visit to China this week. Although the below link speaks to the potential closer ties between COMAC and Bombardier, could a CSeries order becoming closer to fruition by a Chinese carrier?
Bombardier has not sold any CSeries planes to China, and so any orders could really solidify the program. Even a small order by a Chinese carrier would be a huge boost for Bombardier.
According to the article below, Korean Air is not satisfied that Bombardier is properly marketing the CSeries.
Also, Bombardier had signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to sell 6 x CRJ900 NextGen's to an unidentified customer back in October, could this order be firmed up during the Prime Minister's visit?
