This seems a bit of a stretch for the A220…

A220 is for medium hauls. Mostly likely going to replace A320 when retired in a couple years

Nah, it really isn’t close to a stretch.

The A220-300 has an advertised range of around 6204 km or around 3800 mi.

YUL-LAX is only 2,474 mi or 4,000 km.

Air Canada could even use the A220-300 on flights from Montreal to Europe if they wanted to.

That thing has a lot longer range than I thought 😂

I do my research on older aircraft so forgive me for not knowing this.

Yeah, the A220 is an amazing and versatile aircraft. So far no airline has used them for transatlantic flights though.

It looks like airBaltic’s A220-300 flight from Riga to Abu Dhabi is still the world’s longest A220-300 flight at 4,430 km or 2715 miles.

No thanks for comfort reasons? Or other reasons?

Would you fly on an Air Canada 777-300 in economy class for 5 hours instead?
