airBaltic, how long until all Bombardier fleet?

Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:52 am

Considering airBaltic is replacing its aging Boeing 737 Classic fleet with a Bombardier BD-500-1A11 one and that they are keeping their Bombardier Q400NGs, I was wondering when the last 737 will leave the airBaltic fleet and that airBaltic will become an all Bombardier equiped airline?

:confused: why not just call it the CS300 instead of BD-500-1A11?
2020 is the date mentioned in articles over the web.
Next flight: AMS - TLL - AMS

Because the BD-500-1A11 is its name?

In both English and French, BBS calls it the CS300..
Maybe that was some internal name they stopped using?

CS300 is it's name. BD-500-1A11 is its model number. How often does someone refer to the CRJ200 AS CL600-2B19?

At least the RJ name makes some sense. Derived from the Challenger 600, aka CL600. BD-500-1A11.. I guess BD stands for Bombardier? There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to the naming of the Cseries.

BD is also used for BD100 (Challenger 300/350) and BD700 for the Globals
