Delta A220 Debut Today (2/7/19)

Thu Feb 07, 2019 7:00 am

Delta 744 will depart LGA this morning at 6 AM ET bound for BOS, marking the first A220/CS100 commercial service for Delta and in North America. I will be on the flight and am greatly looking forward to it!

Boston approach had a long conversation with DL744 about the aircraft type and what they should call it. DL744 went as far to explain Airbus bought 50.1% of the program and will be building them soon in Mobile.

The first commercial flight of the B767 was also a Boston flight (UA). However, it was a Boston departure, rather than an arrival. All of the pax received laminated inaugural flight luggage tags.Hopefully, DL will do something similar.

What currency are you using?

It certainly isn't USD - for $89.5, you can almost get a brand-new A330 or B787!

The A220-100 list price is $81m, the -300 is $90m. Obviously DL is paying nowhere near that.

$89.5m for a 787 or A330 would be a steal at a nearly 60% discount!

No, it was BOS-ORD. The common element was BOS.

Think about it. How much does a 737 MAX 7/8 cost on list price? Actually over 100 million USD. If so, BCS are actually cheaper, and it will make sense if BCS and 737 series offer the same ratio of discount.
Also, it is nice to see A220 into service. Hopefully they will add JFK-DFW service soon.

Flightaware calls the A220 a "BCS1"... where does that come from? The return BOS-LGA is in the air as is the LGA-DFW flight. Wonder if DL sold revenue seats on the ATL-LGA positioning flights yesterday?

Bombardier C-Series 100. The -300 is BCS3.

The funny thing is that people act as if ATC hasn't been dealing with the C-Series since loooooong before it was flying for Delta or part of the program was purchased by Airbus. It got its designator when it first went into the air, many years ago.

And Flightaware doesn't make up its own codes. BCS1 and BCS3 are the official ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) codes for the aircraft.

I am seeing a total of 23 C-series airborne at this time
2 in Africa (Air Tanzania)
3 in the US (Delta)
And Europe is simply swarming with Swiss and AirBaltic all over the shop.
(Asia is fast asleep at this time...)

I'm guessing Boston ATC weren't asking what the official designation was, but rather how should they describe it on the radio?

The first flight from DFW just touched down at LGA. It rode through the Texas thunderstorms very well. Overall a fantastic flight.
And the lavatory window is adorable.

The original acquisition price from Bombardier was $19.6 million a copy, leading to the Boeing anti-dumping complaint and restructuring of the program under Airbus with US production facility in Mobile. Delta did not pay anywhere near the current A220 list price.

Where did you get that $19.6M a copy?

The only figures we heard was $26M for a "derated" lower range/MTOW/engines CS1 version.

Sorry I missed it. I purchased a seat months ago and got switched to the new first flight but couldn't get out of Nashville last night due to severe weather here, so I cancelled my ticket. Hopefully a standby got to have fun for me instead!

Side note: It doesn't appear that USA Today attended the event. Ben wrote an article about it, but obviously wasn't there. I still think DL missed out on media exposure by scheduling the inaugural flight at 0600.

Didn't Delta pay approximately 22 million for each A220-100, and approximately 90 million for each A339 as they got launch customer pricing?

$19.6M was Boeing's rather baseless claim based on a flawed analysis. Boeing's "analysis" used Delta's projected annual capex and a) divided by too high a number of airplanes (using a 3rd party fleet forecast) and b) neglected to account for the millions already paid to BBD in the form of PDPs, whereas the projected capex number just included the balance. However Boeing did succeed in planting that number in the consciousness of the industry, and of course helped strengthen their otherwise weak case at the Department of Commerce...

The very first E190 flight anywhere in the world was a BOS departure in 2005, on B6. BOS-JFK as I recall (there was a JFK-BOS flight scheduled almost simultaneously but just a few minutes later...)

Looks like a great plane for DL, wish we could have actually seen the takeoff and not just get teased with the engine run-up!

Also Boeing was complaining about it harming their product when they were competing with used 717s and used erj190s, and the only new AC 737-700 or 737-max which wasn't in the Same category as the A220-100 which correct me if I'm wrong weren't entered in the Rfp.

DL825 LGA-DFW just performed a go around at DFW.

liveatc for DFW tower east isn't super clear, but i believe the reason stated was that the aircraft had "floated too far down the runway."

Delta Pilots I’ve spoken to all call it the Canabus (even in a formal presentation). Minibus refers to A319/A318.

Why didn't they just keep Cseries name. Cseries by Airbus for marketing or something like that. Airbus CS 100 and CS 300 I mean the aircraft reg is still Cseries...Airbus is not mentioned anywhere on there. But congrats DL! My ex colleague from Canada is now working as an FA for DL....he was sayin it wuda been awesome if they crewed the inaugural with Canadian born crew working for DL.

Nope! It is a CANABUS.... at least it what pilots call it at our airline.

Canabus.... c100/220 or whatever it number it is the CANABUS !
Mad dog. Md 80
3 holer 727
Tritanic. L1011
Whale 747 or 4x4 or the 18 wheeler
Puppy dog 717
Diesel 8 DC-8
Scarbus. Any Airbus But I have heard 330 as the big bus
75. 757
76. 767. Few just say ER... weird. Who says I fly the Extended Range..... well some do...
767-400 is the 2x4
350 is the trash panda
737 is always a guppy.....

There is more......just can’t remember...

However thank goodness CANABUS stuck! There is even a few good stickers out there in the pilot ops area I’ll try and post...

Cheers

Operation has been good so far as I can tell. DFW has thunderstorms right now (3pm EST on the 19th), so the noon flight left an hour an a half late. But all 5 A220 DFW departures operated today with only that one significant delay so far. There is no longer a full-time operational spare for the fleet, since they added an additional DFW-LGA frequency and one DFW-DTW frequency, but ship 105 has been delivered, and 106 and 107 should come next week. Overall good EIS so far!

It's Airbus A220 on the serial number plate.

Scarbus. Any Airbus But I have heard 330 as the big bus
75. 757
76. 767. Few just say ER... weird. Who says I fly the Extended Range..... well some do...
767-400 is the 2x4
