That's what insurance is for. SAS will ask their insurer for the money to pay for this and the insurer will try and go after Bombardier (if they can show that this is something that Bombardier is negligent for).

SAS Intercont has nothing to do with this. It's a separate company within the SAS Group. SAS Denmark will bear the brunt of this loss, with SAS Sweden taking the rest. And, as already mentioned, there are insurance clauses connected to situations like this. A/C types have been grounded before (733 rudder hard-over, for instance) without airlines going belly-up.
