Good news. The C series is a good aircraft and should be doing better than it is.

Whilst it's partially about survival given the trade dispute with the US, it's a great way, on the flipside, of showing two fingers in response.

The C-Series looks a good aircraft, and I like seeing the smaller players do well.
