Remember that the Canadian plant is expanding and American plant is coming on line.

Re: AF to order A220, replace A380 with 787 or A350?

It was in the news this week that AF and KLM were trading airplane orders. KLM would have all the 787’s and AF would have all the A350’s and A330’s. So, A350’s and 773’s would pick up the slack of the removed A380’s.
Great to see the A220 maybe coming in.
