RE: Bombardier C-Series Gets Board Approval

Wow, This thread has taken an interesting turn in airframe ordering and design philosophy. One thing I'd point out, while the A318 and 736 order books have been spartan, the cost of engineering them was negligible. As the A318 seems to have helped Airbus win the Iberia order, I'm thinking the costs ...

RE: A345/6 R&D Costs And Break Even Sales?

Excellent question. I would point out that the 345/6 received a new wing and engines so that its cost of R&D while less than a new airframe, is more along the lines of the 737NG (Same body cross section and design concept, but lots changed.)
