Airbus investment in the C Series is beginning to look like a good move especially if they can ramp up production schedules.

They need more than one production facility to meet the current demand! And if this thing begins to snowball...customers will want these a/c asap! The proposed Alabama plant must become a reality!

It’s not always the early bird that often catches the worm. Give Boeing and Embraer some time and they will work things out and catch up and maybe even surpass airbus and bombardier. The hare maybe fast but the tortoise usually comes in first. Lol

In the case of Bombardier and Embraer, it was often Embraer being the hare..Embraer could have been an even bigger hare had they gone the original route on the E2 jets, increasing size and range, to bump them out of the RJ market. And if the labor unions in Brazil are as strong as heard, there will be no deal.

You are assuming that somehow Boeing and Embraer make a deal and then make a better plane.

Bombardier made the pane first, paid the price for being first but if a CS customer is happy enough to come back for seconds, then it at least means they succeeded in making a good product.

Not just seconds, but they decided to replace their entire fleet!
