A story out today might lead readers to think a CSeries order from Austrian is imminent.  Its not.

We contacted Austrian and we were told “I am pleased to confirm that we achieved a framework-agreement with our workers council, so now we can be optimistic about the future of Austrian Airlines – including  some thoughts on the fleet modernization. Currently there is neither a decision made regarding the model nor to the number of aircraft.”  Of course you would expect the airline to say this until things are official.

But we were advised by a contact within parent company Lufthansa “…there is nothing to really talk about; don’t know where the rumour originated because there are many things to be done first.”

The Bottom Line:  It could happen, but it isn’t there yet.  The competition between CSeries and E2Jets is still ongoing.
