SINGAPORE -- Bombardier's board has authorized the company to offer its 110-130 seat CSeries family aircraft to potential customers.
Top launch customer candidates include Northwest Airlines, Qatar Airways, ILFC and Lufthansa.
The authority to offer is an important step towards official launch of the aircraft program.

The company has said it will seek firm commitments from customers before seeking launch approval.
