Yes, in 2018 when Airbus needed to show off with big deals just after the partnership was announced.
It is a good thing for the C Series, but from now on the sales will be a little bit more complicated due to the fact the E195-E2 obtained its type certificate in April 2019.
I expect tougher sales campaigns from 2020 onward. In my opinion the C Series missed the opportunity to capitalize on the five year head start.
About 100 C Series have been delivered so far.
Only a few E190-E2 and E195-E2 have been delivered so far.
The numbers 500 in 11 years is not logical. They sold half of that in the last 1,5 years. By this logic i can say Airbus will sell 200 every year, which would also not be logical. It would be using factual numbers to create a skewed prospect.
Just the Air France order was 60 firm and 60 options, which would mean a serious break from the trend-line you keep using as a fact.
