- 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.Jump to post

I'd say they found themselves a state-of-the-art successor to the A319 which has not been selling anymore ever since the NEO was launched . The NB aircraft market has moved into new brackets (just like the when the 737NG replaced the 737Classic and the 130 seater died). The future will be 100-170 s...Jump to post

Another important piece of information is that Airbus will buy the remaining shares by 2023:
The fine print on the deal is that by 2023 Airbus will buy out the remaining Bombardier and Quebec C Series shares.
I think that A319 stay and CS500 is coming. Those families complements each other and give smaller operators large scale options. They can stick in one family, to A320 family operator A319 gives low end option and to CS operator CS500 gives high end option. I'd say that Airbus has cleverly killed o...Jump to post

Surely, the determining factor would be capital cost. If the incremental acquisition price for 2 x 789 is cheaper or on par with 1 x A380 then 789 will generate better returns, or vice versa.

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.
