Now that Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer have played their cards on their product strategy, Bombardier Aerospace president Guy Hachey says "we are quite happy with how things are shaking out."In announcing its tenth CSeries customer -- Turkish low-fare carrier AtlasJet which has committed to taking ten CS300s with options for five more -- Hachey makes the case that his narrowbody is the only really new airplane in the market. Bombardier "is neither stretching, nor shrinking nor reenging its way to a new future," Hachey says.As to the overall program, Hachey says that in addition to 133 firm CSeries orders, the aircraft maker has customer commitments that represent an orderbook of 262 aircraft. He acknowledges that the program's development buffer has shrunk, but says the entry-into-service plans for both the CS100 and CS300 have not changed.
