Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft is facing new uncertainty after its largest customer says it is weighing options for the plane, which no longer fits into its operating model.

Republic Airways says it is deciding how to best deploy the firm order for 40 CS300 aircraft and hasn’t decided to cancel. The Montreal-based manufacturer insists the order is “in tact” but is helping the U.S. carrier to assess its regional aircraft needs.
