Re: CN3 buys 292 A320neo series (01 Jul 22)

Interesting that China doesn’t seem to be throwing its weight behind the C919, and is instead placing huge Airbus orders. C919 seems close to certification, unless I’m missing something? They are being very cautious about ramping up production fast, imho. This makes sense, as fixes to any problems ...
