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

Not sure how far correct is this info but according to this tweet Saudi Gulf airlines canceled their order of 16 CS300 and they are in talks with Airbus for 16 A320s instead. http://twitter.com/AirlinesAnalyst/status/898829392893407232 "Not true. No cancellation, says Bombardier Commercial Air...

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

I would love to know what the real story is, whether it is engines (PW) or airframe (BBD) that are unable to ramp up production adequately. Unfortunately, the aviation press seems to think that they are the marketing arm of the various producers, instead of merely reporting what is going on (or wha...

Re: AirAsia might order CSeries aircraft

One wonders if Bombardier can handle a large order such as what Air Asia contemplates. For instance, Bombardier forecast 30-35 Cseries jets to be delivered in 2017. Only 9 have been delivered so far this year. Unless it finds a way to significantly ramp up its production, I do not think they can ha...

Re: Air Canada: CS300 wil be an excellent performer

The CS300 is actually the base size, and the entire aircraft is built around this version. The CS100 is a shrink in that regard. (...). Bombardier's answer would be "Specifically optimized for the 100- to 150- market segment, the CS100 and CS300 family of aircraft are not stretched or shrunk v...

Re: Air Transat to replace A310 with A321neo LR (rumor)

I can not wait to see if it's going to be confirmed. To replace the B737-800WL would be fine! But to replace the 9 A310s the ideal will be 10 B787-8 or B787-9? Looks like it is confirmed: the "spokesperson" who is being quoted in the article is Gilles Ringwald - VP Commercial. B787-8 or 9...

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

I wonder how the Pratt fan blade situation is coming along. It's been pretty quiet on that front for a while. P&W also expects to resolve a parts shortage problem that crimped geared turbofan engine deliveries to Airbus and Bombardier last year. Of about 1,200 parts inside the engine, P&W i...
