IMO a win-win situation is possible for close cooperation between bombardier & Airbus on the C-series.

The new C-series would fit in below Airbus single aisles 320 series.

The "competing" Airbus A318 will probably remain a niche product, not much lost if they sell a few less.

Benefits could be :
- Joint Marketing & Sales
- EADS to share in investments.
- Full C-series/A320 series cockpit commonality (selling point vs Embraer)
- World wide product support
- Bombardier taking advantage of advanced Airbus design/engineering capasity to speed up introduction.
- Reciprocal outsourcing specialized production to reduce investments

What do you think ?

I would doubt that, because EADS owns together with Dassault Aviation, Snecma and Thales 20% of the Embraer shares.

Boeing is the more likely candidate. As are it's partners in the 7E7 program.

You're basically describing the AE315 which was an Airbus/Chinese partnership. Would have been something quite simmilar to the C-series, but obviously didn't make it past the conceptual stage. I can't see why Airbus would get back into the RJ market now.

Plus, from the way Bombardier describes it, the C-series would go head-to-head with the E195/717/736/A318 and the A319 and 73G.

Bombardier already knocked on doors in Washington and France. The answer was a resounding 'NO'.

As previously mentioned, Airbus, through subsidiaries owns 10% of the voting shares of Embraer (I thought, however, it was a 30% equity share investment?).

Seeing as the C-Series looks extremely similar to the MS-21 (except for the CRJ nose), I would not be surprised in the least if OAO Irkut and Bombardier co-operate on the C-Series.
