Bombardier sells 10 Challengers - BBC stretches them a little

BBC News - Canadian firm Bombardier sells 10 jets for $259m

The ten Challenger 350 business jets are part of Bombardier's new line of C-series jets introduced in 2013.

This was the second order in a week for the C-series jets, which typically hold between 100-150 passengers.
Er ... how many seats in a 'c-series' CL30?

Bugger me, we only squeeze 10 into ours ... must be missing a trick

I guess you don't get sarcasm!

Annnnnd, it looks like some editor has noticed, the current mobile news page is now more sensible.

I think that is the point.

There was much fanfare over the Vista and NJ orders - which implies it is somebody else.

A conversion of options to orders maybe?

NJ I don't know, Vista has not taken delivery of any aircraft in the last 6 to 8 months so maybe the "new" Flexjet or a Chinese outfit like DeerJet?
