The A220 has been selling like the proverbial hotcake. From Latvia to Africa, the A220 is proving a popular aircraft for regional ops, and is doing well in the US too. However, a couple of large carriers have been notably absent from the Airbus order books. Here's why American Airlines (and United) have no desire to buy the A220.
With Delta's fleet of A220s growing by the day and other North American airlines scrambling to join the queue, eyes have turned to the other two of the 'big three', who are yet to express an interest in the jet. Between Delta, JetBlue, Moxy and Air Canada, 270 of the 511 A220s already ordered are all sewn up.
Clearly there is a strong market for a long range, low capacity aircraft in North America, so where are United and AA?
As shared by View From the Wing, American Airlines has clearly stated that they have no interest in the A220...
