Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

Actually, 2 A220-100's remain to be delivered to SWISS. One apparently is in production, the other, apparently in outside storage. And the one in production that you mention is now in the air for the first time. With 50018 to be delivered this month, 50030 delivered earlier this month to Delta and ...

The engines are so quiet that I initially thought the video had no audio (either that or the mic is really bad).

Airbus is expected to announce a rebranding of the C Series at its July 10 pre-Farnborough Air Show media briefing.

Re: CSeries Production/Delivery Thread 2018

Delta's price tag for the planes isn't a mystery. It was disclosed as part of the ITC investigation but redacted from public documents reviewed by CNN. Two people familiar with the deal said each plane was in the "high $20 millions." http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/22/news/companies/bombardi...
