    I was just reading the news section story “Six new aircraft launching soon”. I admit i don’t know really anything about the Comac C919 and the company but their order book, although mostly domestic, seems quite impressive.
    I wonder if any of the big 2 are nervous about possible expansion out of country in the years to come once it refocus its customer base having fulfilled some orders. Its a long way off but interesting none the less.

    Technically at least a generation behind comparable Airbus, Boeing or Bombardier aircraft. Massively over budget (I seem to remember one of the trade mags saying it had cost around $20 billion to develop). The only people buying it are the Chinese Airlines who have been told to do so. In time the Chinese will get it right and produce a modern composite airliner but the C919 is not it.
