Skift Take: Ghana’s AWA (Africa World Airlines) may order Comac's regional jets this month. The carrier would be among the first overseas customers for Comac's commercial aircraft. But the airline is partly owned by China’s HNA Group, which makes it less of a coup than it first appears. Boeing, Airbus, and Embraer may still have some years yet until they compete in jet sales with Comac.
