Introduction
Feb. 11, 2019, © Leeham News: Airbus acquired 50.01% of the Bombardier CSeries program last year. Boeing and Embraer Commercial Aviation received Brazilian government approval last month and now await a nearly-year long regulatory approval process from around the globe. Based on the announced orders at Jan. 1, Airbus has a 78% share of the 100-150 seat sector following the combinations. Embraer sold more airplanes in this sector than Boeing: 95 E195-E2s to 70 737-7s. The former CSeries has 526 orders to 55 for the A319neo.
Summary
  • 14% of the A220 orders are classified as “Red” in LNA’s judgment—orders that either should be removed from the backlog or, in one case, is highly questionable due to customer statements.
  • Another 11% of the A220 orders are classified as “Yellow,” primarily due to region risk.
  • Synergies between A220 and A320 are greater than E2 and 737.
