Media reports surfaced Monday that Airbus SE has proposed to take a more than 50.01 percent ownership stake in the Bombardier C Series program.

In response to media inquiries, Delta said it could not comment, but that it looks forward to introducing the C Series into its fleet.

In April 2016, Delta announced a firm order for 75 CS100 aircraft. The order supports the airline’s strategy to cost-effectively reshape and upgauge its narrowbody fleet, providing an improved customer experience and better cost efficiency while maintaining a focus on prudent capital deployment.
