Now you're adding the Cseries as well? Seems like that could have been covered by the 737-700 or the miniBus.
Not if the advertised 20 to 25% fuel savings on the c-series is a reality...but that remains to be seen. It might turn out like the companies expectation though of a 737-900 being a 757 replacement...that didn't quite pan out.
