When the 787 took its maiden flight, Boeing was over two years off schedule. On the other hand, Bombardier is only off by about 9 months. They're not feeling the same level of pressure, I'd say. I think they're waiting or sunny weather

I totally agree with J L and (Bombardier) congrats this is a beautiful aicrcraft And I just know that it was build right and that it will eventually be a very good seller to those airlines that care for quality and comfort. Kuddos Moe

I think they're waiting for sunny weather so they can take nice photos, and so their guests don't have to stand in the rain. The likelihood of decent weather in Montréal, in September, is high. On the other hand, Seattle, in December... you could wait until June for a sunny day. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little about Seattle's weather.
