“We had a deal with Bombardier to deliver us the airplanes. They were supposed to be delivered in May 2016. We got our license in May 2016, [but] there were no Bombardier airplanes,” Majali said in an interview last month.
“We started negotiating with them on new delivery dates. We didn’t come to an agreement. And now we’re in the middle of negotiations with them again.
“We’re very unhappy with them, because of what happened … The program delays have caused us some big damage and big costs
The airline doesn't know yet if it wants to cancel the order, but they are clearly frustrated about it.
Majali declined to comment when asked about the likelihood of canceling the CSeries order. But he confirmed that, in his opinion, Bombardier has fallen short of its contractual obligations. At the very least, that means SaudiGulf will be seeking compensation or more favorable financial terms as an incentive for proceeding with the purchase.
