Bombardier just flew in Atlanta a few minutes ago its CSeries CS300 demonstration aircraft (aka FTV8).
About to be announced, Delta making public its decision regarding its selection for its next aircraft order of either Boeing or Airbus aircraft, it is very interesting to know that Bombardier just flew in Atlanta a few minutes ago its CSeries CS300 demonstration aircraft (aka FTV8).
What is Delta planning to announce?
Did Delta manage to get Boeing drop its complaint on Bombardier CSeries, wanting to show its commitment toward its CSeries order at the same time as announcing it selected Boeing? Or is it that those negotiations with Boeing went sour and Delta will be showing its CSeries selection with its decision to make its new order from Airbus, CSeries now being an Airbus aircraft too.
Update on the CSeries delivery front… "So far" SWISS CS300 55020 is the next to be delivered, expect its client acceptance flight by the end of the week. airBaltic next CSeries should be leaving soon too.
Between December 18 to 27 expect to have three (3) CSeries delivery, SWISS 55020, airBaltic 55016 and, yes, first Korean Air CSeries MSN 55018 (or 55019)…
From what I hear everything is being done at Bombardier CSeries factory to deliver the first two (2) Korean Air CSeries before the end of 2017. Depending on the client inspection results, client acceptance flights… Could four (4) new CSeries be delivered before the end of the year? We're December 12…
