Question about Deltas A220

Fri Nov 02, 2018 10:57 pm

Hello all,

So we all know the C Series has been rebranded the A220. However, under the nose on the plane for Delta the identification number still says CS100. Also when looking on flight aware, the aircraft is still listed as a CS100.

Why is this? Is it something specific to Delta or is there another reason the plane is still being identified as a CS100?

Thanks!

I think it's just a matter of time for the branding to all be switched over.

I'm thinking the paint scheme was set by DL before the AB takeover or the painting was done before the take over.

ICAO designation is still CS1 and is unlikely to change so they might just want to have commonality with the identifier on the plane.

I think it was Delta’s way of paying respect to the original name. Let’s see if the second one has this.

All DAL technical documentation will remain CS100. Marketing & passenger information will be A220. Aircraft listed as CS1 on NRSA flight list.

As others mentioned, legally, it is still the CS100.

I assume it’s type certified as the CS100?

Nope. It’s the Bombardier BD-500-1A00

The safety cards say A220, but the legal name is CSALP BD500 for the family, so the A220 name is equality valid as C Series.

I was thinking more along the lines of financial agreements and contracts, i.e. Delta ordered a CS100 from Bombardier... and has to be delivered that, rather than an "Airbus A220" from Airbus.

For whatever reasons, Delta decided that keeping it as CS100 was best for them.

Real answer. Cert says Bombardier BD-500-1A00. All the Delta internal paperwork refers it as the CS100. The Airbus branding came too late in the process to change before the induction. From a customer view point it is going to be referred as an A220. Some time in the future, most likely when the -300 comes on property all the internal paperwork will be switched to the Airbus name. This came out as an official Delta release to employees.

Many airlines paint the version of the aircraft on the nose doors or on the nose. I.e. 737-800 usually you would see 800 on the nose or nose gear doors.
