Re: West Jet MAX 7 order in doubt

WS is going to have to compete with AC A220. WS is also aligned with DL, who is in love with the A220 at the moment. The A220 is also the perfect airplane for Canada, which has many, many routes that can't support larger equipment and are a few hours in length. So I think it will actually be hard fo...

Re: E195-E2 vs. 737MAX7

This would be a far smaller penalty to Delta on seating capacity (probably 99 instead of 108 pax), and should be up-gradable if ...
