What an interesting December! Santa seems to have made an early visit to Canada.
- Air Canada ordered 61 Boeing 737 MAXs worth $6.5bn at list prices, a big win over Airbus. This is a customer turnover, which makes the deal even more impressive
- American Airlines placed a firm order for 30 Bombardier CRJ900s valued at $1.4bn, plus options on another 40 taking the deal to potentially $3.4bn. (Santa also gave Embraer an order for 60 E175s plus 90 options in a deal valued at $2.5bn from the same airline)
- Nantong Tongzhou Bay Aviation Industry Co., Ltd. in China (a start-up) ordered 30 Bombardier Q400s valued at $995m
- China Express Airlines ordered three Bombardier CRJ900s plus 13 options
