I've nothing useful to add on this but can I just say how excited I am that we've reached the point where a 'QF A220 Arrivals' thread isn't out of place!

From todays QF announcement

"The Qantas Group is on track to receive the first two QantasLink A220 aircraft by the end of this calendar year; subsequent deliveries are expected to be delayed by up to four months as a result of supply chain disruption."

Two this year and wait until P&W sort out their engine problems.

The first A220-300 (MSN 55253) was scheduled to be delivered in November this year but is still in production and hasn't made an appearance out of the factory in Montreal. From roll out to delivery can take up to three months or longer, so it looks as though it will not be delivered until early 2024.

Six are due for delivery by the end of 2024.

Based on the MSN's under test. QF's A220 should be rolled out to commence flight test in the near future.

Also the first QF A220 may be delivered by the end of November but not in service.

Does the A220 appear on any forward booking systems yet ?
