The CSeries that are being delivered to Swiss were originally ordered by Lufthansa, but due to the delays in the project Lufthansa group decided to operate the aircraft by Swiss. So, I say Lufthansa is a big potencial buyer even if that 61 Cseries order isn't from them. They have 26 E190/195 and 30 A319 that can be replaced by the CS100 and CS300 respectively. Lufthansa still have 33 CRJ-900, configured to 90 seats, maybe the CS100 could replace the CRJs too.

In fact, every Airbus A320/A321 customer is a potencial buyer, especially if that customer operates regional aircrafts too. I'd say JetBlue is a potencial buyer in the US too. They have about 60 E190 and some say they weren't very happy with this aircraft.

Air Baltic Plans To Buy More Bombardier C Series 300s

Martin Gauss, CEO of Air Baltic, launch customer for Bombardier’s C Series 300 narrowbody twinjet, said at the 2017 Dubai Airshow the airline has “taken the decision to negotiate for at least another 14 aircraft” on top of its firm order for 20 CS300s. "But that is only to fulfill the current business plan,” he added, hinting additional orders are possible.

Designed for the 100- to 150-passenger market, the C Series entered service with the CS100 and launch customer Swiss in 2016, three years behind schedule. Air Baltic took delivery of its first CS300 in December and now has seven CS300s in service, including the one on static display this week at Al Maktoum International Airport during the Dubai show.

Gauss also said Latvia-based Air Baltic has decided it will gradually replace its Boeing 737s and Bombardier Q400 turboprops with CS300s, due to several factors: “The overwhelming experience of the performance of this aircraft—a combination of the fuel savings and the economics of the longer range of this aircraft—but also the feedback of the passengers in the first year is so good that they want to be on that aircraft. So for us it was an obvious choice.”

The range of the CS300 will help Air Baltic expand its routes, Gauss said, pointing to service between Riga and Abu Dhabi, inaugurated last week. “This route shows the capability of the aircraft,” he said of the six-hour flight. “From that we can expand our existing network through Abu Dhabi [for passengers going] to Southeast Asia,” he added. “There are many more destinations in the future we can reach that we couldn’t before."

Last month Bombardier and Airbus announced a partnership, with the latter acquiring a 50.1 percent majority stake in the C Series without making any payment.

Egypt Air might announce a Cseries order at the DAS.

The letter of intent, my friend!
They signed the same type of letter with Russian Sukhoi Superjet manufacturer. i will not be surprised if Egyptians have signed letters with Boeing and Airbus.
Ooops! Almost forgot the Embraer!

Another source for the EgyptAir LOI for up to 24 CS300s.


https://news.airwise.com/story/egypt...ardier-cseries


EgyptAir signed a letter of intent to acquire up to 24 Bombardier CS300 aircraft at the Dubai Airshow.
The LOI is for 12 CS300s, with purchase rights for an additional 12 of the type. The 12-plane order is worth USD$1.1 billion, and if all options are taken up, double that amount.


Sounds relatively serious to me...a firm order can't be too far away

I agree with Kosolap, an LOI with Egyptian is not worth the paper it is written on.

ALLISON LAMPERT AND CHRISTINE MURRAY
MONTREAL AND MEXICO CITY
REUTERS
PUBLISHED 3 HOURS AGO
UPDATED DECEMBER 4, 2017
Aeromexico has held preliminary talks to take some Bombardier C Series jet orders from Delta Air Lines Inc., which owns a stake in the Mexican carrier, to avoid possible U.S. trade duties levied on the planes, two sources familiar with the matter said.

Mexico's largest carrier, 49-per cent owned by Delta, is considering taking an unknown number of the 75 C Series planes ordered by Delta in 2016, one of the sources said. Delta's C Series deliveries, scheduled to begin in spring 2018, face a possible 300 per cent U.S. duty stemming from a trade dispute with Boeing Co.

In October, Bombardier gave a controlling stake in the C Series program to Airbus SE, which would enable assembly in the United States in a move it says will help bypass potential import duties.

Under the proposed Aeromexico deal, the single-aisle jets would be sold to Aeromexico and fly under the banner of the Mexican carrier which would not have to pay a U.S. duty, one of the sources added.

"It's not a way for Aeromexico to fly for Delta," the same source said. "But it keeps the planes within the Delta family."

Aeromexico is now reviewing its fleet, a third source said, which is composed of Boeing and Brazil's Embraer SA jets. The carrier received a presentation about the 110-to-130 seat C Series last week, and is expected to receive another from Bombardier's Brazilian rival, the source said.

Sources spoke on condition of anonymity as the talks are confidential. They cautioned that no final decision has been made and Aeromexico could still buy planes from Embraer.

Embraer and Bombardier both declined to comment. Aeromexico referred questions to Delta. Delta did not comment on any specific deal, but spokesman Morgan Durrant referred to recent remarks by the company's CEO who said the carrier would not pay any duties, but still intended to "take the aircraft."

An Aeromexico deal would offer a short-term solution to Bombardier and Delta in the trade dispute.

A U.S. trade agency is expected to decide in early 2018 on Boeing's complaint that the Canadian company benefited unfairly from subsidies and dumped the 110– to 130-seat C Series jets in the U.S. market below cost.

The case has fueled trade tensions between Canada and the United States and comes as the two countries, along with Mexico, are engaged in tense negotiations to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Bombardier has said it would assemble the C Series jets destined for U.S. airlines at Airbus' Alabama plant, which the two companies say would exempt them from duties.

Boeing has countered that the C Series should still be subject to duties, even if the planes are assembled in the United States.

When you really think abut that statement you realise how ridiculous Boeing are being. Compete or die, put up or shut *p Boeing!!...how dare they try to dictate the type of aircraft airlines can purchase in America.

More rulings on the Boeing complaint due before the end of the year.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...upend-industry

and submissions on the case are linked here.

https://leehamnews.com/2017/12/18/bo...trade-dispute/

My 2c is that the 737-7 is a primitive pile of overweight crap compared to a CS-300 and that is why nobody wants to buy a 737-7 ...whether the original or the 150 seat variant kited in the last year.
