In fact, it still counts as the 12,000th Airbus delivery. No matter who designed it or where it was built, it's an Airbus A220.

Do you own shares in Bombardier or are you just auditioning for a job with their PR agency? The C Series' problem wasn't increasing demand, it was well-below-expected demand and Bombardier was having trouble sustaining it until there really was increasing demand. Then Boeing shot itself in the foot with its ridiculous attempt to stifle it, which further delayed any increase in sales. THAT is when Airbus got involved. I've never heard them referred to as an "honest broker" before. That's definitely a new one.
