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

Unless BBD can pick up their delivery pace I doubt we'll see any more orders. There is clearly a major production delay issue. Why would anybody order an aircraft that looks likely to be significantly delayed? As has already been much discussed in this thread, the problem is not with BBD. It's Prat...
