The route used cracks me up. Hopefully the crew won't be quizzed on this. Otherwise it will sound like a stream of consciousness reply if they do.

" ...it's 12000 aircraft " -- seriously? We're abusing the apostrophe so much that we have to do it in headlines now too?

Watch your spelling. It should read ...delivery of its 12000th aircraft. It's stands for 'it is'.
Have a nice day.

Very unique! Is this flt path programmed in or done manually by crew? I wanna know. Also looks like chem-trails to me although chem-trails are normally straight and/or higher alt. (wink).

It wasn't that easy to read the "K." And while they're on the subject, it seems a bit odd that the 12,000th "Airbus" plane is one that another company designed and they only own a 50.01% stake in.

Tobin; do you mean like the Boeing 717, or the Boeing C-17? Or the 80% Boeing-Embraer deal in 2019?

Mergers, collaboration and partnerships are the way of the world. Remember that Airbus is also building planes (for the restricted USA market) in Mobile Alabama.

Sit back and wait for flames.

Fair point, Mike. I didn't say it was improper, just odd. It's kind of like a "Ship of Theseus" thought experiment as to when a plane becomes "yours." This isn't a merger like Boeing-MCD or United-Continental, or when a specialty automaker uses an Audi engine. Bombardier designed it; it was built in Quebec. I have no idea the extent to which Airbus executives have changed the culture at the program, but I would imagine that things are much as they were. Airbus didn't lay out any cash in the deal, and only owns half of the program. So yes, it's an Airbus plane, and yes, they should count it as their 12,000th, but compared to a 320neo, it feels -- odd.
