Re: David Neeleman Raising Funds for New U.S. Airline

C Series 300 would work well and the future secondary airports that they should focus on in the long run for 'hub like operations' are as follows:

West coast - SJC or OAK + BUR

Midwest - MDW or MCI

South - SAT (San Antonio) + SFB (Orlando Sanford)

East Coast - BWI

C Series 100 is ideal for Zambia Airways for the next 3-4 years. They can order 5 firm + 5 options with the latter being able to upsize to the 300 series in case the airline's routes perform well. Also the extended range of the CS1 (5.5 hours max) versus E95 (3.5 hours max) comes in handy.
