Re: Airbus A220 Developments : more of a match for A320neo than Airbus says

The backlog and production capacity is the largest issue for an A220-500. Do you think Airbus would consider opening an A220 production line in Europe? Volume is too low for two lines. Airbus is doing the best they can: 1. Open Mobile 2. Modernize/expand Mirabel. I speculate Mobile will be rapidly ...
