Re: Undisclosed customer orders 40 A330 NEO aircraft

My guess is it is for AC to replace the 767s at Rouge, the small number of 767s remaining at mainline and the hodge podge of 330 leases Air Canada has added to its fleet in the few years. That would pretty much bang on 40 aircraft and the timing is right, especially when it comes to replacing the Ro...

Re: CSeries - Flight Testing And Production Thread (Part 2)

Also announced some good news with the bad this morning.... A LOI has been signed with an unidentified European customer for 31 CSeries + 30 options. Wonder who that could be?

Re: Swiss is satisfied with CS100 operations

"Satisfied" isn't exactly the rave review that I was hoping to hear. The numbers sound promising but none of the comments in the article are of the kind that Bombardier could put in a press release and shop around to prospective customers. Am I reading too much into the comments? Either wa...

Re: CSeries - Flight Test And Production (Part 12)

A bit of a random question that comes from watching all the recent delivery footage... it appears that with the C Series Bombardier made the decision to use a roof hatch for flight deck emergency egress. Based on this fact and the fact that I have never seen a photo of a C Series with open flight de...
