The A220 can be what ever the airlines choose it to be!
I only ever said that the unions should not determine the future of an airline and if EI is making any decision based on scope clauses, then the union is determining the future of the airline!
My math is fine, thanks.
The reason the A220 wouldn't work as a regional plane is for the same an A320 wouldn't, it's too big. A regional aircraft is literally defined as one under 100 seats.
The planes are regional for a reason, harkening back to my original point, a regional plane is sent if it can't support a bigger plane or more frequency is required. If they want to replace every aircraft in the fleet with an A220 so be it, but they're not regional aircraft and they never will be.
