This bird dosn't sell very well. So far only the launch customer Condor
(12 orders) and Icelandair (3 orders) have ordered it in 1.5 year. It
makes only sense in the charter market as the trip costs per seat are
very low. I really don't see a regular airline putting all those
passengers in this thin tube. And yes ... Icelandair isn't known for
being very comfortable.

My views,
