Delta's First A220-100 Exits The Paint Shop

At last the first North American A220 exits the paint shop! Delta's first A220-100 (formerly Bombardier CSeries 100) exited the paint shop in Mirabel, Quebec last week.

Delta showed off the plane with photos from both inside and outside of the hangar.

One interesting thing to note is that this plane does not have winglets. I wonder if these will be attached later or if there have been updates to the design.

Delta's A220-100 will sport a 2-3 Main Cabin layout with large overhead bins, providing a comfortable experience for customers. Still no word on whether or not this plane will get inflight entertainment screens, but my venture is yes as this plane can fly very long routes.

While this plane won't fly until the beginning of 2019 at the earliest, rumor has it that it will operate on Delta Connection's more heavily trafficked routes. Will Delta operate it and take over the route, or will they allow their subsidiaries to?

What do you think? Are you excited to fly this plane?
