I had wondered if we had another 717 in work. Instead, after the DL order, it has been steady progress.
LOT and Turkish airways are missing. on this listing. They are now in discussion with Embraer and Airbus, so either E2 family or A220.
According A220 Asia tour: Malaysia Air Group are also interested....and many others have checked the A220 during the tour, but stayed "undisclosaed", with exception of one lessor in Japan, till now not involved in aircraft leasing. The former CEO Mitsubish air program was on board and is now working for them
EDIT: Let us do not forget Air Tanzania/Tanzanian government, who have already confirmed, to order two additional A223.
Also the Air France order is still not stated as firmed.
IAG is looking for their regional airline; but here I expect, the E190 E2 will be ordered with 100 seats regarding scope clauses.
Air France is additional looking for a replacement for their regional airline HOP!
Regarding national laws, to protect regional airlines, only jets with maximum 100 Pax are allowed.
Turkish would be a nice win for either. It sounds as if both A220/E2 are being seriously considered:

When searching for LOT, I didn't find any links I could take seriously for the A220. That seems to be a campaign for Embraer to lose. But as with JetBlue, stranger things have happened.
As to HOP, we could see E2-190 or an capped A220-100.
For HOP! I am pretty sure, it will end up with the E190E2 with 99 PAX; commonality will be less important than to take care , that they have not to pay the crews of the regional airlines the same loan as for the mainline Air France. It will be the same with IAG. British Airways will order A220 while Cityline will get the E190E2 with 99 PAX.
EDIT: We have forgotten :
Azimuth Airlines is ihighly nterested in the A220.-> will likely take from lessor the former RedWing A220 not taken.
