Re: Breaking: Airbus and Bombardier Announce C Series Partnership

- Because the CS500 could be sold as 150 seater to regional airlines and the A320NEO as 150-170 seater to mainline airlines. As CS300 already stretches to 160 seats in charter airline configuration, CS500 would clearly hold 170 to 180 seats in regional cabin configurations. That is A320 territory.

It seems the A380 is more densely configured than 2 x 787, but the 787 still comes out cheaper. That to me says a lot about QF not wanting to take more A380s down the road. A lot of the argument here on A.net is that if the A380 were configured more densely , it would win out on even the newer gene...
