RE: Any Plans For BBD To Launch A New Generation CRJ?

I would expect Bombardier to invest where it can get the best return on its investment. Currently that would probably be a CSeries stretch and incremental improvements to the Q400 and CRJ. The CSeries stretch would seem to give the largest payoff once they have the production rate up, unit costs dow...

I don't think it is too late. A new cabin to help passengers differentiate between new and old aircraft and to improve comfort levels combined with the Passport engine which one would assume would be a fairly easy task to put on the CRJ once the Global 7000 is flying will keep the CRJ competitive.

Bombardier targets completion of between 255 and 315 aircraft by the end of 2020, with an expectation of reaching up to 120 per year on the current line.

With Delta taking Republics slots I would expect that if Delta wanted them before the end of 2019 they could get them that fast.
