On April 28, Delta Air Lines and Bombardier announced a firm agreement for 75 CSeries aircraft. They sealed the deal with custom PacMin desktop models in Delta’s livery.
Delta also has options for another 50 CS100 aircraft and to convert a portion of their order to the larger CS300. The deal makes Delta Bombardier’s largest CSeries customer to date. Bombardier is expected to begin deliveries in spring 2018.
Having a custom scale model allows customers and future passengers an opportunity to view the aircraft before it enters service. Airlines can also see how their livery will look on a new aircraft.

Update 7/23/18: The Bombardier CSeries aircraft is now the Airbus A220.
