Why a United Airlines Order For The C-Series Could Be Imminent

Quote
The diverse United Airlines fleet had 256 50-seat regional jets at the end of 2015. A few weeks ago, United announced their order for 40 Boeing 737-700 aircraft. This will allow the Chicago-based carrier to reduce its fleet of 50-seat aircraft by more than half by 2019. “We are continuing to pursue additional aircraft to continue upgauging and meet our capacity plans,” said Gerry Laderman, acting Chief Financial Officer of the Chicago-based carrier, during an earnings call on 21st January 2016.



Between its seven domestic hubs, United operates more than 200 daily flights with more than 90% of these flights operated by mainline narrowbody aircraft. United’s fleet strategy is clear and direct – to increase capacity on high-frequency domestic routes.

With that in mind, United will need to add more narrowbody aircraft to its fleet. This is why United is also leasing 11 used A319s from AerCap, the first nine of which will join the fleet in 2016. They will use the B737-700s ordered and the potential 100-seat aircraft order to replace 50-seat regional jets and upgrade its fleet.

Hence, most analysts believe that United is not finished with shopping in 2016 for more small jets because it lacks aircraft in the 100-seat niche. Additionally, United has never shied away from introducing aircraft to break commonality amongst their fleet.

The lower operating costs of the C-Series and superior fuel efficiency are two important reasons why United will be seriously considering an order for the newly developed aircraft. The introduction of the C-Series into their fleet will help the airline achieve higher aircraft utilization rates and increased reliability between its high-frequency domestic city-pairs. This move could not only serve as a catalyst for Bombardier’s C-series program but also lead United to another profitable year.

Air Canada to buy up to 75 Bombardier CS300 aircraft

Quote
Air Canada has signed a letter of intent to purchase 45 of Bombardier’s CS300 aircraft with options for an additional 30 planes.

Based on the list price of the CS300, Bombardier says a firm order would be worth about $3.8 billion.

Once a firm purchase agreement is in place, Bombardier says Air Canada will become the first mainline, international North America-based carrier for the C Series family of aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2019.

With this agreement, Bombardier says it now has orders and commitments for a total of 678 C Series planes.

Daaa!! In sfarsit, da' mult s-au mai tras pe partea dorsala!

E o perioada critica pt. Bombardier, dar eu prevad ca dupa ce Boeing anunta inlocuitorul lui 737 (si probabil va fi mai mare decat actuala gama), va fi bataie pe C-Series, si Bombardier va veni si cu CS500. A&B se vor retrage in sus (in incercarea de a acoperi si zona 200-240 locuri), Embraer nu prea mai poate mari 195-ul, si toata zona de la 110-160 locuri ("standard seating") va ramane deschisa. Zona in care CS e imbatabil.

Pai avem 737 MAX de-abia lansat cu aproape 4000 de comenzi, cu modelele corespunzand aproape 1:1 cu 737NG. La fel si A320NEO, unde desi au crescut "un pic", tot 1:1 corespund. Nu mai au variantele scurte, sub ~150, dar acolo nici 736-le nici 318-le nu s-au vandut.

MAX nu poate trai mult mai mult de un deceniu, pentru ca practic doar 800-le e competitiv. Airbus face bani garla cu 321Neo, si cererea in segmentul asta de piata pare sa creasca (200-250 locuri, raza medie-lunga).

De asta Boeing va trebui sa anunte ceva nou in urmatorii 5 ani. Probabil vor face ceva un pic mai greu (in MTOW) decat 737, sa poata acoperi si fostul segment al 757, si ceva mai lat ca sa ofere comfort mai bun pe segmente lungi si culoar mai lat. Dar atunci aceasi platforma nu mai poate concura  sub 150 locuri cu CS

Iar in acesti 5 ani CS are timp sa confirme.

Iar Airbus... NEO are mai multa viata in el, dar tocmai datorita lui 321. Si daca/cand va trebui, cred ca se va putea face un "322". Deja 319-le a luat locul lui 318 si se vinde mai mult ca ACJ. Deja Airbus fuge in sus.

Airbus takes control of Bombardier CSeries in rebuff to U.S. threat

Quote
Airbus SE (AIR.PA) agreed on Monday to buy a majority stake in Bombardier Inc's (BBDb.TO) CSeries jetliner program, grabbing control of a struggling competitor at the second attempt and giving the Canadian plane-and-train-maker an unexpected boost in its costly trade dispute with Boeing Co (BA.N).

The deal, which would come at no cost for Toulouse, France-based Airbus, would give the European planemaker a 50.01 percent interest in CSeries Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), which manufactures and sells the jets, the companies said.

While Bombardier will lose control of a plane program developed at a cost of $6 billion, it gives the CSeries improved economies of scale and a better sales network. The 110-to-130 seat plane has not secured a new order in 18 months and is being threatened by a possible 300 percent duty on U.S. imports.

Bombardier said the partnership should more than double the value of the CSeries program.

"Bombardier no longer has control of this jet, but then again, it's better to have a 30 percent share of a very successful program than to struggle with a highly risky program that was perhaps too big for them from the start," said aerospace analyst Richard Aboulafia.

Canadian Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains, who must decide whether to approve the deal, said in a statement that "on the surface, Bombardier's new proposed partnership ... would help position the CSeries for success".

STRATEGIC DECISION

Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders said the company has offered to assemble some of the narrowbody jets at its U.S. plant in Alabama for orders by American carriers.

The U.S. assembly line would mean the jets would not be subject to possible U.S. anti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties of 300 percent, Bombardier Chief Executive Alain Bellemare said on a media conference call.

Bellemare called the deal with Airbus, which was first attempted unsuccessfully in 2015, a "strategic" decision that is expected to close in the second half of 2018.

"We're doing this deal here not because of this Boeing petition. We are doing this deal because it is the right strategic move for Bombardier," Bellemare said, referring to Boeing's complaint that the Canadian firm received illegal subsidies and dumped CSeries planes at "absurdly low" prices.

A Boeing spokesman dismissed the agreement as a "questionable deal between two state-subsidized competitors" to try to skirt a recent U.S. trade finding against the CSeries.

In February, the Canadian government announced C$372.5 million ($297 million) in repayable loans for the CSeries and another Bombardier jet program.
