Wasn't a forgone conclusion either. Bombardier were pitching the CS300 hard against the A320. They probably really need a CS500 variant to properly take on the single-aisle market. Say, up to 180 seats. That would mean: - The Embraer Ejets would cover from 80-120 seats - The CSeries would cover from 110-190 seats - The 737 family would cover from 125-215 seats - The A320 family would cover from 125-220 seats Giving them (BA) a family that would allow carriers to operate wholly CSeries fleets... which is where commonality giving MRO savings kick in.
