Oh yeah, the SSJ is so great that it’s escaped the attention of just about every carrier. GF Have you ever heard of "politics"? What about "monopolies"? I mean, shouldn't be praising russians for making planes, against all odds? https://airinsight.com/interjet-and-sukhoi-lessons...Jump to post
From 2023, C-Series will be 100% Airbus owned. Who told you that? Jon Ostrower said so in a tweet: "The fine print on the deal is that by 2023 Airbus will buy out the remaining Bombardier and Quebec C Series shares." https://twitter.com/jonostrower/status/920086386899763200 2023 is for th...Jump to post
Statement from Boeing legal just claimed the tariffs have to be satisfied whether the jet are assembled in the US or not. Yes, that's an interesting claim, but that's all it is. They are suggesting that parts imported for C Series assembled in the US will be subject to the tariff, from what I gathe...Jump to post
The Quebec government still owns 20%. And Bombardier another 30%. How exactly do they move production just like that? That's not happening. Production for the US market will move to Mobile, exactly as stated in the Press. And the rest of the world will stay in Montreal. Down the road, I can see som...Jump to post
While possible, Embraer just doesn't offer the same as Bombardier does. The C-series slots perfectly into the Airbus or Boeing portfolio as A319/73G and A320/738 replacements. The E-jet is just a tad too small for that. Replacing the 73G with the E195-E2 is just a stretch too far IMO. Embraer can h...Jump to post
A lot of people are missing the obvious... A CS500 doesn't "compete" with the A320 series, if they're made by the same company, it just broadens Airbus' appeal to customers. An airline that would've spent their money on the CS500 at BBD will now give the same money to Airbus if they want ...Jump to post
The end of BBD's attempts to compete with Boeing and Airbus, but the events of the last 5 years have shown that they weren't capable of doing this.

The image shows the high-density version... perhaps if two-class 200 seats doesn't work, they can easily reconfigure to one-class 230-240 seats.

Bombardier can sale it plane in the US at cost are above. Just like any foreign company that meets the requirements for doing so.

The way this is going, they might as well forget about the P-8A. Hang on to the P-3 as long as they can and make due with a smaller MMA aircraft. The MSA is based on the Bombardier frame.
