I don’t believe it was. The mystery order was suppose to be from a non existing customer.
What is a"non-existing customer"?
He was referring to the way BBD used to do it - announcing orders to customers who weren't real at all
But seriously, I usually keep an eye on orders but don't follow too closely. This year, I'l be watching much more closely, particularly to see if any of the CS/Emb fights are resolved
If JetBlue goes E2, that buys Embraer some time since it will likely be a decent sized order from a strong operator. If JetBlue goes CSeries, then unless Embraer announces a surprise big order at the airshow, they've got their work cut out for them. I say that not as a criticism of their product but rather simply where the market seems to be right now. The CSeries gets some street cred with Airbus and, by association, some time to develop more orders. Embraer doesn't have that luxury. The EIS of the E190-E2 at Wideroe has gone great, which will help, but that needs to translate into orders.
