The news from Bombardier has people trying hard to figure out who this is.  It is not clear what is meant by a “new customer”; is this new to C Series or new to Bombardier?

Here is a poll of the EU-based brands we think might be runners, i.e. have enough aircraft between 100-135 seats.  We added “Other” in case you think its someone else.

PS If you select “Other” please add your suggestion in the comments section below.

Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek.

Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.

Al Baker, its president has already stressed that he wants to replace Alitalia as the first national carrier and he wants to operate quickly, massively. It is worth starting quickly so this company with 787, A330 and 737 MAX, but it will not be able to receive all these 737 quickly. However, he pledged to the public authorities to connect together first Italian cities, then with European cities, etc. Al Baker needs advertising and he can do it in Dubai in about ten days.
