How long did they wait for the A380 and 787? Both programs had longer delay's and bigger cost overruns than the CSeries.

Some times you have to wait a bit longer for the most advanced product. That the A320 is beating the CSeries to market is no big accomplishment considering it is basically a 30 year old design with new engines.

Those airlines that have put their faith in the CSeries will be rewarded as it is being reported by Leeham news that the CSeries is exceeding performance expectations.

the boss still has five ordered and will likely increase the order. In the meantime, he's leased three more L188's
