Airbus is buying into BBD and the C Series as Airbus knows they can make a BUCK or EURO. That is the main reason for this transaction. :old:

I think Boeing already knew this deal was in the works and decided to make Airbus a bit difficult to make sure the import tariffs were enforced before the Airbus Bombardier deal went ahead. Without it Airbus could have just used 1 assembly in Canada and the C Series got a lot of negative press in the large market that is the USA.

Airbus wasn't really aiming at Boeing with this purchase, but much more at the Chinese industry which also could have picked up the C Series and create an easy inroad for Chinese aircraft manufactures into the world market. Which in the long run would have caused a much larger issue for both Airbus and Boeing. It also sends a clear message to any smaller aircraft manufacturer that could have plans to try to enter the A320 / 737 market: "You cannot do it without us". That makes it harder for Boeing to do something similar, as Embraer or Mitsubishi won't start to think anytime soon on something larger then their current portfolio.

What would be the point. They would own a design that breaks even. Not much profit in that, even if it was free. Airbus only wins if the C-series makes a profit.

The E2 and MRJ are too small. Next logical conclusion is for Boeing to tie up with COMAC or Irkut. My money is on China. You heard it here first.

It's coded as "growing market", but everyone knows it's really about tariff evasion. The CSeries is nowhere close to needing another manufacturing line to meet demand. So in a way it is just for fun. I doubt the US government will look kindly at the clear effort to evade tariffs.

If you own 50% plus 1 share, you have pretty much all control. There are still blocking minorities, but that is as close to full control as you can get without owning more than 75%/95% (may be different number in Canada).

I fail to see what they can do. It's not illegal for Airbus to make and sell airplanes in the US. And how exactly they do tariff imports like airframes and engines?

My predictions. You can grade me when the future is known.

It would be interesting to see other people's predictions.

1) There will be a significant order for the C-series in the next 9 months. At least 40 planes, or 25 orders + 25 options.

2) There will be no CS500. Ever.

3) Bombardier will have to invest more money in the program. Airbus will not.

4) Bombardier does not reveal new development plans in the next two years. No Q400+. No CRJneo.

5) Boeing does not buy Embraer or the Mitsubishi Regional Jet for the next three years.

6) The C-series does not make money in the next 5 years.

7) Airbus buys the whole program for small change (they want the support contracts for the next decades).

8) Delta gets their planes

9) No significant anti-trust things happen.

10) This will be like Airbus's investment into ATR. It does not fundamentally change everything, and ATR is stymied from developing future models.

Wow, 360 replies in seven hours. Congrats to Airbus and Bombardier for the deal.

I didn't have time to read all the posts, but regarding regulatory approval: US and Boeing can still make things difficult. On the other hand, Boeing and McDonnell Douglas merger went through earlier.

Boeing run poorly right now?? What are you smoking?? Check out their stock price, if only all public companies were so poorly run. As one analyst said; "Boing is a cash flow machine". I wish I had bought far more Boeing stock than I did last year. BA is the best performing stock in the Dow for the past year. I guess you are smarter than wall street.

Watch the after-market ticker today and opening bell tomorrow. Wall Street is notoriously shortsighted because all they do is chase quarterlies. This is the end result. Boeing should have gotten in there and grabbed Bombardier before Airbus.

But they lost one important USP, the commonality. CCQ is a nice thing, it took me 10 days from the A320 to the A330. This is a problem Airbus needs to sort out (which will cost a lot of money)

Well… it would be hard for the US gov't to complain. With the tariffs in place, most potential CSeries sales would probably have gone to Embraer. Instead, now there will be new jobs created in a state which voted for Trump.

Specifically referring to the CSeries program, and CS500 development is in the hands of Airbus, yes. I assume that's what you're saying.

Technically, BBD could still develop another aircraft. Obviously, that's not going to happen. Nonetheless, it is true that BBD remains an independent corporation. They only lost their controlling interest in the CSeries program specifically.

Very well put. Seems like just a easy way to get a competitor out of the game. That’s the way I’m seeing it anyways.

Looking from a different angle, it seems like an easy way to keep an possible competitor (COMAC) out of the game. At least for a few years...

3. The contract is in Airbus' favor...
4. I think Bombardier is done in commercial aircraft. :(
5. I agree Boeing will not buy Embraer of the MRJ. It just isn't worth their effort.
6. How much money will depend on future sales.
7. I think the C-series will do better than small change. I do think Airbus will buy out the program.
8. Yes, DL gets their planes, just late for Mobile to learn the process.
9. I agree, the anti-trust is for imports. This will be assembled out of majority US parts in Mobile.

From a Leeham article back in May:

And now, thanks in part to Boeing's complain, the C Series became an Airbus plane.

If that's not irony I don't know what it is.

Boeing guys should cherish that now they'll get to build their New Small Airplane instead of keep putting lipstick on a 1960's design.

I think that with Airbus now having 2 families of modern narrow body aircraft Boeing will not launch a further 737 refresh (MAXX?) but instead will be forced to develop a new aircraft (that combined with the simultaneous MOM program could stretch a little their engineering and/or financial assets).

Wow, a surprise I was expecting to happen. While secretly hoping BBD to grow up as a third major manufacturer, and knowing thats impossibility, this may be the best solution to save CSeries. Definitely Airbus gives the missed credibility to the program, and I do not believe that Canadians gave it to Airbus to terminate it. While Airbus owns majority, it does not give dictatorial powers, as there evidently will be hard contracts between shareholders how to run the company.

I expect to see CSeries airbused in the future, maybe to be sold as A110, A130 and A150, or whatever, the "A150"/CS500 being the first "Airbus". Converting the other CSeries models to Airbus would be no easy task, with all mission creep a billion scale project. Adding the CS500 will help Airbus as it competes much more with 738 than A320, and is notably lighter with smaller range.
That also gives room for Airbus to grow 320 series, with a larger wing and new lengths, maybe called 328/329.

So, fundamentally, BBD is paying for AB to sell the CSeries? And all that will come to an end after two election cycles from now? Splendid face saving…
I do hope the CSeries does not get killed… with very moderate optimism. I am even less optimistic about BBD's mid-term survival, and not only in the aerospace business. Nothing seems to be rolling for them, now.
Congratulations to Airbus. And to Boeing, well…

And, when they overstretch, the gov't steps in because they're "too big too fail," and the EU slaps tariffs on them for being subsidized! :duck:

Okay… I'm being facetious, and don't really see things getting that bad, as much as I wouldn't mind seeing Boeing get a taste of their own medicine. Still, there could be some challenges ahead for Boeing, depending on what Airbus does with this. Putting aside my sad feelings for BBD… this story is definitely the most interesting thing to happen in the aviation world in quite some time.

It would be sort of odd i the US tried to block a Canadian Company sell something to a European Company, or stopping that European company from investing money in the US. And Alabama would probably sue the hell out of the federal government for even trying.

They may complain that Bombardier is selling to part of the program too cheap, but they themselves just reduced the market value of that program.

Now this is irony. And the best part is that it happened after they jacked up the tariffs waaaay past 79% which epicly backfired in the most spectacular fashion imaginable, with BBD richocheting away straight to Airbus. This is the corporate definition of shooting yourself in the foot, and one level above that in a duopoly.

I can't wait to see the CSeries at SEA in DL colors flying right over Everett, it'll be even better than when QR flew their A380 to ATL.

I agree the downside for Boeing is that they then they leave the 150- marked to Airbus (and a bit to China and Russia, but those aren't real competitors yet on the international stage).
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

The way I see it is that Airbus got a clean-sheet aircraft program for practically nothing, while Boeing is now in the position where they will have to invest billions in developing a whole new family of aircraft to replace the 737 and develop the MoM concept. Airbus just has to develop the A320 series more towards the upper end, and that just means 1 development program for them. Boeing will need to tackle 2 programs at once.

As per Wiki, they've got just under 70 A319s and B73G. And assuming the CS100 wasn't a 717 replacement another 91 birds to replace. That's 160 frames right there.

That alone is enough to keep Mobile busy for a bit.

I agree the downside for Boeing is that they then they leave the 150- marked to Airbus (and a bit to China and Russia, but those aren't real competitors yet on the international stage).

The way I see it is that Airbus got a clean-sheet aircraft program for practically nothing, while Boeing is now in the position where they will have to invest billions in developing a whole new family of aircraft to replace the 737 and develop the MoM concept. Airbus just has to develop the A320 series more towards the upper end, and that just means 1 development program for them. Boeing will need to tackle 2 programs at once.


:checkmark: Yes, or abandon one marketplace. So a loose - loose for Boeing. For Airbus, develop the A322 and give the MoM a run for its money and keep the prices in check.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

It sure backfired on Boeing. Now, Airbus will gain even more market share in NA with its powerhouse of a narrow-body lineup (CS100/300/500? and 320/321neo). Delta will now get their CSeries aircraft without any tariff and even more with another order, perhaps including 320/321neo aircraft. Other US carriers like B6 and AA may decide it's safe to order the CSeries (A360?) now that Airbus is involved. The chances of the CS500 seeing the light of day have increased significantly now. Ed Bastian must be smiling right now. LH Group is probably even closer to another order for the CSeries than they were before, given that Airbus is running the show now.

Now we know why Delta never mentioned a cancellation. Fantastic news for Airbus! The B-squad must be so mad :rotfl:

Well, does it mean more jobs in Mobile?
How did Boeing lawyers not anticipate this? Too cocky?

One part of the deal is that Airbus get warrants to buy 5% stake of Bombardier.

I believe that Airbus will wind down the 319 program (not instantly dead.... but, likely no more active sales efforts shortly); and, that the CS500 development will start within a year - with primary assembly slated for the US.

Have a great day,

The CS300 prototype has just arrived at the Airbus delivery centre. I guess there wil be a lot to celebrate today.

Growing market for C Series results in second Final Assembly Line in Mobile, Alabama, serving U.S. customers


And that's how Bombardier will avoid the 300% tariff.

Airbus-Bombardier CSeries deal means no tariffs on US-assembled aircraft, says CEO


Flip side of the coin is that CS500 may never see daylight.
What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.

A Boeing spokesman dismissed the agreement as a “questionable deal between two state-subsidized competitors” to try to skirt a recent U.S. trade finding against the CSeries.
