  1. What about the A220 LOI, is there any chance it become a firm order or is it dead?

  2. Few years ago, the promoters regaled the global aviation industry with order of 50 Airbus aircraft. That didn’t look realistic considering how small, weak and fragmented the continent’s aviation market is.
    At a Airbis summit in Toulouse, France in 2019 which I was privileged to attend, Airbus’ chiefs mentioned the ambition of the airline and its orders.
    I think COVID-19 pandemic has made them to rethink their strategy by opting for smaller airplanes like ATR among others.
    Not certain if the orders are still realistic.
