VS may wish to leverage its parent Delta and switch a few of the many A220s it has on order to the VS/Connect business. Would imagine the cost savings by returning the worn out and more expensive to run e75s will be significant!

And of course with the USA slapping punitive duties on aircraft imports from the EU, Delta might see the prospect of diverting some of their A220 order to FlyBe thus saving additional costs that may not have been budgeted for.

....are you sure?.. the A220 was developed with Canadian Government and Bombardier investment (not Airbus) in addition to the assembly line in Montreal, the aircraft will also be assembled in Alabama, USA.

Airbus' manufacturing growth in the United States advanced another step today in Mobile, Alabama, as construction of the company's A220 Manufacturing Facility officially launched with a groundbreaking ceremony.16 Jan 2019

Airbus has an A220 production line in Mobile, Alabama so only EU manufactured aircraft would be effected and I doubt Delta will receive any.

It's going to be reregistered to Stobart Air so I'd imagine it will stay all white

Agreed, but theyd have to convince the other 70% owners of Flybe that getting bigger, more expensive aircraft was a good decision and I cant see that as an imminent decision.

Isn't it also a known fact the E75's cost a small fortune to operate and a sensible mid/long term business case for replacements could be the correct direction of travel, sooner rather than later and whilst the new company is in the midst of a full on top down restructure!

So the minority shareholder of the minority shareholder will re-allocate some of their expensive new assets to help turn round a loss making business in a declining market? Should go down well in Atlanta!

Press release next Tuesday apparently about the order
Well here we are and there's no sign yet of an A220 announcement - however you might just have been a week early ...

Ho hum... Coincidence? Airbus announces undisclosed orders for 14 A220s (ten -100s and four -300s) - it appears these are two different orders from separate customers

It correlates with this, however that rumoured tweet talked about 20 frames and could be me doing 2+2=5...
