The CSeries will eventually come in two different flavors, but the first is the CS100 that should seat up to around 125 passengers. If things go according to plan it’ll be in commercial service at some point around the middle of next year. The CS300 will arrive a little bit later, but they’ll be able to cram a few more seats into that model. Bombardier is proud to claim that this is a brand new aircraft—not just a redesign—as it looks to head into more direct competition with Airbus and Boeing and their updated single-aisle airplanes.
We’re not quite sure which carrier will be the first to launch these planes as a commercial option, and it sounds like Bombardier is also keeping it zipped when it comes to that news. Lufthansa and Republic Airways have thrown down some money for delivery of these new planes, but other than that the sales haven’t exactly been going crazy. If you want to get one for yourself it sounds like the smaller model will go for a cool $62 million; however, if you’re buying a bunch we bet they’ll cut you a deal.
