There are speculations that Bombardier might offer a slightly modified long range version that would allow an all business class configured plane to fly for example from the New York area directly to London City Airport. I've no idea if that would make sense.

The boss wants a pair of them. I agree - better to buy Canadian than EU consortium

Okay, so I'm guilty of a duplicate squawk. I really did search for it, but I guess I missed it. What can I say? I'm only human.

Yes, Odyssey Airlines has ordered 10 CSeries to be used on the London City / New York Route. Unlike the A319 British Airways currently flies on this route the CSeries will not have to make a stop in Shannon Ireland on the westbound leg

Thanks Kevin. So modifications other than an all business class configuration won't be necessary? I felt that would be a bit tight as far as range is concerned, but lower weight of this configuration might be enough.

I am surprised the Quebec Language Police did not force Bombardier to take down the video because it was 'filmed' in Montreal, and narrated in English. Mon dieu!

French and English are both National languages in Canada and yes it is also in French. But not in spanish for the USA just English.
