It's not, but it was basically obsolete when it eventually flew and it has been left behind by the 190/195, never mind the E2.
They just did - for the second time in a month. Seems Boeing are making real slim pickings this time around though, but its worth it if they get some WB's.
IMO what BBD needs is some bridging loan to help them compete with Embraer & ATR again. I think the CS
will eventually be OK
once they get it in service, but they need to reinvent the rest of the line up.
They need to NEO the CRJ, whether it be with the Passport, PW17/900G or whatever. However inferior the frame may be comfort wise for pax, it has been very successful and with new engines it should still be competitive.
They also need to find a way to offer the Q400 with the PW127F. Basically the same wing took the PW123 before, so I dont see why not. Playing around with galleys and slimline seats is not going to cut it.
Its no good just paying off the debts caused by the CS
, LJ85 and the new Globals if future revenue streams are not assured, otherwise you are never going to see any return on the investment.
Need a few 300's too for Polaris replacement, will look sharp in the blue & white.

And if Suncor, Husky, Imperial, etc go bust you don't think there are a few dozen companies that supply and service them who would also go bust? You don't think that ripple effect would be huge? No difference except for the politics around them.
Already happened, loads of companies have half empty offices. If you have a resource, it makes sense to use it, but there has always been a clear need for diversification in AB
. Now the focus is doing it in a cleaner more environmentally friendly way, at which point it no longer makes sense to use it in the current market. But it will rebound and the status quo will probably be returned in time for the next generation.
