Competition between the A220 and E2 is limited. In terms of size, the -100 version of the A220 sits somewhere between the 190-E2 and the 195-E2, depending on the cabin layout.
With a maximum takeoff weight of 63 tons, however, the A220-100 is heavier than the 190-E2 (56.4 tons) and 195-E2 (61 tons) and offers a lot more range: 3,400 nm versus 2,800 nm for the 190-E2, and 2,600 nm for the 195-E2.
So the A220 and E2 really address different market segments.
Most of the A220 orders are for the larger -300 version, which addresses long, thin routes. Airlines pay a cost penalty when they use it...
