Norm, yes, I'm familiar with the definition of the term "conditional". I just thought you might have a better idea of what those particular conditions were in the context of this order.In my experience following these things, orders are more commonly referred to as either "firm" orders, or "optional" orders.Bombardier appears to be getting a lot of orders that aren't being given much weight by investors. After a little more digging into the Netjets deal, for example, it becomes easier to understand why that order isn't being taken too seriously by the investment community. Although that may not be an accurate assessment - especially over the long haul - it may help to understand why some observers/analysts/investors see things the way they do.I'll try to post more on this when I get a chance.
