Bombardier CSeries is an 'attractive aircraft': Air Lease Corp CEO

Air Lease Corporation CEO Steven F Udvar-Házy stated (26-Apr-2012) the Bombardier CSeries is an "attractive aircraft". He, however, noted the aircraft remains an unknown in a market where the ATR 42 and ATR 72 and the E jets are well established. He continued: "I would like to see Bombardier spending more on marketing the aircraft – to airlines, not lessors. It's an attractive aircraft on paper but the focus needs to be on selling. They have spent a lot on developing and making a good product, but have not focussed enough on the sales side."
