Remember: Wall Street Journal: A notional third model, dubbed the CS500, would compete with larger versions of coming updated models of Boeing's 737 and Airbus's A320 that have sold by the thousands since 2010.
Mr. Cromer indicated Bombardier needs to get through testing the first two models to determine if there is an opportunity for a CS500 that might use the same wings, for example, a major cost savings
How perfect for Delta and British Airways not to be alone ordering CSeries and also announcing orders for the CS500 at Farnborough 2016 in coming July with Bombardier... ? Some are focusing on the past, who control the vote, but management is focusing on tomorrow... How would it help the city of Montreal current 11% unemployment rate, province of Quebec at 8.3%? Bombardier Inc. is not looking for an "extra" US$1B investment from Ottawa for nothing, they stated they have when they need for the "current products... ". On top of that, all investments in Bombardier by the governments have paid back heavily. (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/...)
This is a very exciting time at Bombardier under its new management team!
**April 19: Note: I forgot about Lufthansa who "also" said they would order larger CSeries when available..
