Not just emb hasn't come up with a solution, they said it's your planes you fix them. Pretty much tried and washed their hands of the issue

Something this important won't deter us from buying the E2 for a second.

Hey - who’s spying on me????

If we go CSeries, everyone will be happier with the airplane - pilots will love the room up front and the automation (sidesticks yay!), the pax will love the new ergonomics (huge bins, huge windows and big lavs) vs the “stretched E170” and Robin will appreciate the versatility of the airplane - MCO-BOI or FLL-PDX are possible with the CS300 just like the typical BOS-JFK-DCA shuttle. Swiss flies them on 30 minute shuttle flights to Paris as well as 4-5 hour flights across Europe. You get more options and flexibility with the CSeries.

Who knows what will happen? Hopefully we’ll hear more soon.

Yeah! And, and, we can fly them for 15% less than Delta! Robin will be THRILLED!

I was wondering what was going on. I've had a couple legs pulled as well. Good god if these things have spar issues, or other underlying issues this company would be insane to not dump the Brazilian trash back into the jungle and go get some C series.

Can you guys imagine if the company had to place 320's on a significant portion of the 190 routes? I can just imagine the bloodbath when they ask for help from this group after the news in the last union blast.
