Delta Airlines has placed an order for over 75 Bombardier CSeries 100 aircrafts for a deal worth over $5.3 Billion. This transaction is the largest in Bombardier Commercial Aircraft history, placing Delta Airlines as Bombardier’s largest CSeries customers.
Bombardier’s CS100 is a family of narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-range jets. The CS100 seats 110 passengers while the CS300 seats 135 passengers. CSeries aircrafts contain a high amount of composite materials and larger windows. The cabins feature large, rotating overhead storage. These aircrafts are equipped with 2 Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engines and has a maximum cruising speed of 470 kts.
This order has over 50 purchase options of the $71.8 million Bombardier CSeries aircrafts. It is said that Delta purchased these planes at a largely discount list price with over 65-70% off. On April 28 , 2016 Delta Airlines announce the deal at a media conference.
Delta Airlines is a major American Airline that is headquartered at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, GA. They operate over 5,400 flights daily, servicing over 334 destinations in 64 Countries across 6 continents.
Delta’s fleet consists of 642 mainline narrow body aircrafts. With less than half of the fleet hold less than 150 passengers. It is rumored that the McDonnell Douglas MD-88 is to be replaced by the CS100. Bombardier’s CSeries are considered an excellent replacement flights that require a short hauls, allowing for more flexibility with a 2,600 to 3,000 nautical miles operational range.
With this purchase, and a previous order by Air Canada, Bombardier hopes to bring the heat with the competitors like Airbus and Boeing. Boeing has been dominating the industry since the 1998 merger with McDonnell-Douglas.

China Eastern Airlines has just announced their signing for 20 Airbus A350-900s and 15 Boeing 787-9s as they embark on their long-haul fleet modernization program. The airline stated in a filing to the Shanghai stock exchange that they are expecting delivery of the A350s in batches starting from 2018 to 2022.Exclusively powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, 2 A350 aircrafts will be delivered in 2018, three in 2019, and two more in 2020. The remaining 13 are to be introduced in 2021-2022. Concurrently, China Eastern will be taking delivery of the 787-9s over the entire period of 2018-2021 and was not given an option in regards to engine selection for the Boeing jets.
In 2018, four 787-9s will be delivered to China Eastern, followed by the six in 2019, and finally the last five in 2020-2021. This long-haul renewal comes on the heels of a restored commitment by China Eastern to the 787 lost in 2011.
At the time China Eastern canceled a 787 order in favor of the 737. As part of a stipulation set forth by the fleet upgrade program, China Eastern is to withdraw 12 Airbus A330s and a total of six Boeing 767’s from service. The A350 deal is valued at just a shade under $6 billion with the 787 agreement at around $4 billion, but inside sources have revealed that airframers have been granted significant concessions. China Eastern Airlines was established on 6/27/1988 under the CAAC Huadong Adminstration and is headquartered in the China Eastern Airlines Building on Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in the Changing District of Shanghai, China.
It is considered one of the main major airlines which operates international, domestic and regional routes with main hubs at Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport. By passenger numbers, China Eastern Airlines is China’s second-largest carrier and also became the country’s first airline to offer shares on the international market. China Eastern Airlines has an incredibly strong presence on routes in Asia, North America and Australia as it looks to exploit the domestic market by boosting flight frequencies. They are the first major Chinese carrier to place an order with Airbus and the A320 is considered the backbone of the fleet.

On April 15th, 2016, Airways News released a new article about how Bombardier is close to selling up to 125 Jetliners to Delta international Air Lines in the near future. Airways News for their information from Jon Ostrower and Jacquie McNish from The Wall Street Journal. Delta Airlines, the number two U.S. airline, has been very eager to close deal with Bombardier manufacturer.
Delta Airlines plans to replace its old fleet of McDonnell Douglas MD-88 jets as they only have single aisle seating. Because Delta wants to transition to taking on more regional routes, the single aisle seating would not work, where as Bombardier’s jetliner will accommodate for this need.
Here’s what Ed Bastian, Delta Airlines’ incoming chief executive, talks more about this. “the MD-88s do need to retire, and we have roughly 115 of them.” Delta is putting their attention on a five year renewal of its domestic fleet. Bastian will have more information on the company and its direction during the investor meeting that is held sometime in May in New York.
If this deal is completed, Bombardier will have sold over $5 billion up to $6 billion worth of inventory, based on list prices.
It seems like Bombardier has been competing with Boeing and Airbus Group SE for quite a while but now as it stands, Bombardier is in the lead to close on Delta. However even with this big deal, analysts have shown that there is a potential that buyers will demand price cuts and very stringent contract terms.
Although no final decision has been made, if Delta decides to go with Bombardier here’s what they plan to do. Delta would purchase 75 orders of the jetliners with option to order 50 more by the tail end of April.
With many airlines transitioning to other types of seating other than the single seating jets, Bombardier is taking a hit. Here’s what Ostrower and McNish have to say.
“Bombardier’s foray into the 100- to 160-seat single-aisle jet market has left it with a heavy debt load after repeated delays and technical setbacks. The aircraft will enter service with Swiss International Air Lines, a unit of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, in June, roughly 2½ years later than first intended.”
On April 15, 2015, American Airlines celebrated its 90th year of service in the commercial aviation industry. Throughout the decades American Airlines has grown to become one of the leading providers of commercial aviation to airline customers.
On April 15, 1926 Charles A. Lindbergh, the chief pilot of Robertson Aircraft Corporation, took flight off to Chicago from St. Louis flying city to city with the US mail as his cargo. Robertson Aircraft Corporation was soon acquired as part of a deal with 80 small airlines.
In 1930 the official formation was created and named American Airways. In 1933 American Airways was transporting mail to over 70 cities in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southwest parts of the United States. Finally in 1934 American Airways was renamed to “American Air Lines”, and was the first to begin transporting passengers nationwide that very same year.
As the years and sky miles accumulated, American Airlines was able to become the world’s largest airline by fleet size and revenue, and second largest by number of destinations. The main hub is located at Dallas/Fort Worth and hubs at Charlotte, Chaicago-O’hare, Los Angeles, Miami, New York-JFK, New York-LaGuardia, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.
Chairman and CEO, Doug Parker stated “It has been a terrific 90 years of our airline and our bes days lie ahead”. American Airlines has over 100,000 strong and innovating workers and is “Going for Great”, their current slogan.
For this special occasion, flight 90 going from Chicago O’Hare to London Heathrow celebrated by displaying the original American Airlines logo before departure. Also, during the day, American Airline employees held festivities at their depature gates and hit social media using #HBDAmerican.

The Boeing Company, the American multinational corporation that manufactures, designs, and sells satellites, rockets, rotorcrafts, and airplanes, has recently reached a milestone as they delivered their 400th Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft to Ryanair, the Irish low-cost airline headquartered in Swords, Dublin. Ryanair operates the biggest fleet of Next-Generation 737-800s in the entire world.
"The Boeing 737-800 aircraft, with its industry leading technical reliability and seating capacity, has been the foundation upon which our successful and safe growth has been built upon, since we took our first delivery in March 1999," said Michael Hickey, the Chief Operations Officer at Ryanair. "We are delighted to be now taking delivery of our 400th 737-800, which includes the new Boeing Sky Interior and slimline seats, offering extra leg room and an enhanced customer experience, as part of our 'Always Getting Programme'."
The Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft offers the most ideal platform for Ryanair as they continue to pursue further growth. Over thirty years ago, Ryanair led the way for the low-cost model in Europe. Ryanair holds over 1,800 flights a day as they are the largest Boeing operator in Europe. The airline carries 106 million passengers a year to over 30 countries worldwide.
"A key factor in Ryanair's continued success is the outstanding economics of the Next-Generation 737-800," said the vice president of European Sales for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Monty Oliver. "This 400th 737 delivery is a special milestone for both our companies and we are honored that Ryanair continues to be an all-Boeing operator."
Ryanair was also the launch customer for the newest member of the 737 MAX family, the 737 MAX 200. The Dublin-based airline has placed an order for 100 737 MAX 200s, which can fit up to 200 seats. The 737 MAX 200 is a variant based upon the very successful 737 MAX 8, and is designed to increase revenue potential by offering their operators with up to a 20 percent increase in fuel efficiency per seat in comparison to the most efficient single-aisle airplanes flying currently.
On April 4th, 2016, David Kaminski Morrow released an article on Flight Global which talks about how Alaska Air Group acquired Virgin America. The two reached an agreement that the US budget carrier Virgin American was acquired for about $4 billion. Alaska Air Group is the parent company of Alaska Airlines.It is said that both carriers had their boards unanimously approve of this acquisition.
In terms of payments, here’s how it’s going to work. Alaska Air Group agrees to pay $2.6 billion worth of equity in cash to Virgin America based on their $57 per share value. The rest of the money will be from debt that is calculated from Virgin America. Not only this but more of the money will be capitalized in aircraft operating leases.
With this acquisition, it is predicted by the boards that the company’s revenue will increase by over 25% which is over$7 billion. Because of this, the acquisition will be considered accretive to adjust earnings per share within the first full year.
Here’s what Alaska Air Group has to say about the acquisition.
““With an expanded West Coast presence, a larger customer base, and an enhanced platform for growth, Alaska Airlines will be positioned to provide more choices for customers, increase competition and deliver attractive returns to investors.”
It can be noted that this operation will allow for more growth opportunity within the company. It will allow for more accessed to airports such as New York LaGuardia, New Yok JFK, and Washington National which are all locations on the east coast.
When Virgin America fully is acquired by Alaska Air Group, the group will have a combined fleet of over 280 aircrafts which will allow the company have a combined total of over 1,100 departures daily. Hubs will be near Los Angeles, Anchorage, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Brad Tilden, chief of Alaska Air Group, talks about expanding their business in California more.
“With our expanded network and strong presence in California, we’ll offer customers more attractive flight options for non-stop travel.”
The goal for the near acquisition is to
“focus on an outstanding travel experience.”
Aerospace manufacturers from all around the world gathered at an airshow in Chile to observe the latest and greatest defense products. South American aircraft parts suppliers had displays and exhibits all around for the Fidae 2016 International Air & Space Fair near the capital of Chile. The event is held every other year, and has attracted numbers that exceed six-hundred exhibitors and up to 45,000 trade visitors in conventions past.
Big name manufacturers such as Saab were in attendance, interested in expanding their influence in the continent after being awarded a contract in Brazil a few years ago. Starting sometime in 2019, they are set to deliver thirty-six of their Gripen E multi-role fighter out of their factory in Sweden.
“This year Fidae is the major exhibition for the aerospace and defense industry in Latin America and an event of great strategic importance for Saab,” officials at the company said. “The region is a dynamic market where Saab sees great opportunities across all of its domains.”
Embraer will put on the finishing touches to the manufacturing process for Saab’s Gripens that are going to Brazil.
Other representatives from top manufacturers in attendance included Airbus Defense & Space, Bell Helicopter, Boeing, Finmeccanica, General Atomics, Lockheed Martin, and Lockheed/Sikorsky Aircraft. Some of the events that took place were flight demonstrations by aircraft such as the United States Air Force’s F-22Raptor fighter. This is just the second time they have put on a display for the convention.
Some other aircraft that were there for the show were the AirLand Scorpion light attack and surveillance jet from Textron and Universal Avionics CASA CN-235-100 twin-engine transports (which will be used by the Chilean military).

Russia is currently in development of a manned and unmanned fighter aircraft. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin revealed to reporters last Wednesday the Sukhoi’s design bureau first blueprint for the new 6th generation fighter jet project. Rogozin elaborates that the Sukhoi design bureau have created the general design for the 6th generation fighter jet from the ground up and will be available in a manned and unmanned version, which means it will be pilotless. Viktor Bondarev, the head of the newly created Russian Aerospace Forces, emphasizes that the work and modifications will continue on undeterred because according to his words,
” If we stop, we will stop forever. Therefore, the work is going on – on the sixth and perhaps the seventh (generation) fighters.”
And while no specifics have been leaked, Vladimir Mikhailov, the head of the department for the military aviation programs at their United Aircraft Corp, believes that the first 6th generation fighter jet could take to the skies during the second half of the fiscal year 2020.
Working concurrently with the 6th generation fighter jet project is a projected founded in 2012 in support of the scientific research for Russia’s defense industry by Andrei Grigoriev who is the CEO of the Moscow based Advanced Research Foundation. This project spearheaded by Grigoriev focuses primarily on materials and engines and aims to develop a new aircraft design to lay the foundation for the 6th generation fighter jet project. And while the objective is certainly well on its way and on track according to Russian officials, given the fiscal realities of Russia, the migration beyond the initial design stage is anything but assured.
What is on the docks is Russia’s intent to push forward ahead with the introduction of their new 5th generation fighter jet which is based on the Sukhoi Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation T-50 prototype. The 5th generation fighter jet is expected to be inducted into the Russian Aerospace Forces as early as 2017 with the T-50 going through extensive flight trials at the moment. For now, 4 T-50 prototypes have been delivered along with two test beds of the fighter by Sukhoi with 3 more in the works for the coming weeks.
