[ok] Rename the CSeries to A220

As the title says.
Or keep the double name for the fleet group (like the BAe/Avro, or MD-90/B717).

It’s a shame because now we will never see a CS500 to rival the B73X or A32X.

Maybe not. That's 100% guessing, but Airbus could keep the... ehm... A220 as small NB (with a 500 variant to replace the A320) and plan something larger as MOM.

It's a C series and it annoys me so much that airbus have renamed it. I know they have bought it a 50.1% share so have the right to but to me it feels like they are wiping away what bombardier achieved in that design. The way they are showing it off like a brand new design is sickening.

It will always be a CSeries to me, like St James Park isn't the Sports Direct Stadium, Starburst are really Opal Fruits, Snickers is a Marathon and so on....

You may have won't he world cup but you won't take my CSeries from me

Viva la CSeries  :D

I didn't mean to show off anything (and France didn't won the cup yet when I posted), nor to offend or provoke anyone. It was purely factual.
Indeed, on a wider scale I tend to prefer the original names as well, but I can't ignore facts either.
(and Airbus ain't purely french, it's transnational).
