Analysis: The Airbus A220 Is Redefining Regional Ops At DeltaThe Airbus A220 should be seen as the sweet spot between a Bombardier CRJ-900 and a Boeing 787. Delta Air Lines (DL) took delivery of its first Airbus A220-100 in October 2018, becoming the first American carrier to operate the Canadian-manufactured plane. The aircraft has been an utter success in its first five months of operations with the Atlanta-based carrier. Here's why. (airwaysmag.com) More...

I had my first DL flight on the "Canabus" A220 last month from SLC to DFW. Was very impressed by the cabin layout, comfort and overall quietness in all phases of the flight. Would definitely look to book on this type again.
Quote from above: "The aircraft has been an utter success in the first 5 months of operation. Maybe Boeing knew this and tried to terminate this successful program. In any event the A220 ha exceeded all operators expectations.
In its attack on Bombardier, Boeing claimed the C Series was an "existential threat" to the 737. Perhaps they should have looked closer to home for the actual threat.
Wow. Well played. And yes, boeing stepped on their own tail here. Airbus was the clear benefactor.
Airbus only became the benefactor when they got a majority stake in the program. It was originally Bombardier and had nothing to do with Airbus, but now that Airbus can get full naming rights, it's just another huge stab in the face to Boeing.
Yes, in the board room which makes the decisions going forward.
