Re: AF to order A220

So KLM signed an LoI for E2 and AFR would order A220. That's interesting. Well, KL has historically leaned towards Boeing (all but 13 of their 94 aircraft are B; the remaining 13 are a mix A332/333, and some of the A332s are being phased out in favor of the 789 and the 78J), while AF has typically ...
