What is Sky Aviation doing with their Superjets, incidentally? Delivery was 27th of February - what is the entry into service route and date?


OK

With the seating chart above, it looks like the CSeries will be competing mostly with the A320 family, B737 family, and the E-Jet family of aircraft... hopefully, with its higher seating capacity than the largest E-jet (E195), as well as a relative average seating capacity to its Airbus and Boeing peers, the CSeries will be a popular, lower-cost option for regional carriers and LCCs. I also hope that it can operate at airports with STOL operations and at remote aerodromes over time...

With the 1st flight scheduled "before the end of June" I wonder when we hear some news with an actual date for when it's going to happen.

2 maiden flights for 2 new commercial jet series in just 1 month time is quite something special, I don't think that has ever happened before.

This news had already leaked, the new airline Odessey is behind one of the orders for the CS100.

Bombardier Discloses Odyssey as European Customer for 10 CSeries Aircraft

Bombardier Aerospace disclosed today that a previously announced firm order for 10 CS100 aircraft was placed by Odyssey Airlines, a new airline that intends to operate from London City Airport. The firm order was announced on June 24, 2011.

Based on the list price for the CS100 aircraft at the time of the order, the firm order is valued at $628 million US.

“We are launching Odyssey Airlines with the CS100 aircraft because its transcontinental range will allow us to connect key city airports with stringent performance and environmental requirements both in Europe and further afield,” said Adam D. Scott, Chief Executive Officer, Odyssey Airlines. “We have a unique strategy that will offer a premier service with a focus on new destinations that cannot currently be served from London City Airport. For us, the game-changing CSeries aircraft offers the best-in-class airfield performance, the lowest sound profile of any commercial aircraft in production in its segment, and will provide the ability to open new markets -- all of which are integral to our business model.”

“Over the last two years, Bombardier has seen Odyssey evolve into a forward-thinking and up-and-coming airline. We are thrilled to publicly welcome Odyssey Airlines to the family of CS100 aircraft operators,” said Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “The CSeries aircraft’s premium cabin, reduced environmental footprint and fantastic ability to serve a wide range of missions are the perfect pairing to Odyssey’s business plan,” he added.
Full press release:

Among other routes Odyssey wants to start a London City - New York route with the CS100 in an all business class lay-out.

The 1st flight has been delayed by a month, it should now happen before the end of July. Software updates is given as the reason for this delay.


Om a more positive side:

Qatar Airways is rumored to place an order this November at the Dubai Airshow.
http://atwonline.com/airframes/qatar...&sfvc4enews=42

If they would order the plane they be the 2nd major mainline airline that orders the plane after Swiss. That's good news because then it would become more interesting for the major leasing companies to also order the plane. Some of them have said that this is the reason why they didn't place any orders yet. With more orders from different kind of airlines it becomes easier for them to to place the planes.

Looking at the graphic above it looks like there is a position for a CS500 with one class seating up to 180 people.

Firstly, there's the A320NEO and Boeing 737MAX whose range of family allow airlines to maximize operating costs without needing to add a new aircraft type. It might make sense to buy the CSeries if the airline's suitably large enough that the cost from operating two families of aircraft are offset by efficiencies. Secondly, the CSeries is unproven, and airlines don't want to commit until they have performance guarantees. And it has been insinuated that Bombardier's sales team aren't exactly stellar.
