Re: Airbus A220 Production/Delivery Thread - 2020

The next two Airbus A220-300 have been "exported" from Canada. OK, my head is spinning - is that 10 for September (assuming the 5 x 220-100 for DL have been delivered contractually)? Not sure how to take the Transport Canada export pages, but in addition to the 5 x A221 and 1 x A223 for D...

It will be interesting to see how things play out. However, given the 6 A321's at YMX, would Delta want to leave them in storage there in the harsh Quebec Winter? Or do they bite the bullet, pay the tariffs, take delivery and fly these to VCV or MZJ for storage until they actually can fly them on t...
