Bombardier As A Division Of Boeing?

Fri Mar 05, 2004 7:48 pm


Could be beneficial for both.

Could help Boeing in entering the 100- to 130-seat category, if they conclude the 717 isn't so hot.



Bombardier could use Boeings sales/marketing power, financial and technical support.

Boeing Russian RRJ cooperation seems focussed mainly on CIS and related markets so possible senergies here too (if it goes along).

I can just see the anti-trust people sharpening their pencils on this one...

Making 100 seaters and 300+ seaters is not quite the same thing, so one wonders if there would be enough synergies.

I'm being a bit facetious but it may end up a bit of being the other way round:

Boeing already has owned part of Bombardier - it owned DeHavilland Canada for a while before it was sold off to first the government, and then Bombardier.

It would be interesting if there was some kind of joint venture, but I'm not sure if trade rules would allow Boeing to purchase a majority stake in Bombardier.

I was about to say that CPDC10-30.

In fact when the Dash-7 and 8 where being developed they where in Boeings hands.

At the same time, how would Dornier as a division of Airbus have been (i.e. Airbus save and market the 728 and maybe the 328jet)?

Cant happen United4ever....Airbus partners have a 10% overall (30% common) stock interest in Embraer.

FD would be competition within their own structure.......not good.

During their initial failure, Airbus was fairly adament to their major subcontracting arms not to be involved in bidding. Hence, only BBD and Alenia were considered serious.
