Re: Bombardier announces LoI for 31 (+30 Options) CSeries from an unnamed European Customer

I highly suspect it's LH (Group). If the pilot deal goes through (currently in ballot), they need to expand the KTV flying (overall), while it's partly shrinking, as the 4U part is moved to EW. So they need aircraft. Also the number kind of makes sense. It could be the 30 options and the one ntu by...
