I thought Luxair was seriously considering the A220 some time ago, including ones to be used for their route to London City Airport. Doesn't seem to be anything the news recently if they are going with the A's or the E2's. Anyone have any updates?

Re: Midwest Express Route Announcements-August 28th

Maybe they realized, like Baltia and California Pacific that if you are going to set up and run an airline, its better to set up an airline that doesn't fly planes, rather than one that does. You lose less money that way.....:). Baltia lasted 30 years without flying one plane.
