    I assume the winner will be the non-US bank that provides low interest leases for everything so it’s not delivered to the US.

      It is unclear that this really works. But, yes, it is one of the many things being discussed.

      Seth Miller I have no doubt it involves another Boeing complaint.

    Delta doesn’t believe in aviation subsidies, right? As a friend of mine mentioned, the airline should be applauding this decision, and Bastian should be happy to pay the tariff. 😉

    Off course boeing win. The battle was in the land of USA. Why would US government body render a decision not in favour of its home industry? It would be ridiculous…

    Hello, please respond to delta changing the charge amount to $250,000 from $25,000 for diamond status for 2019. This is ridiculous, a 1000% increase, and it hits their most loyal customers. They do not want to serve their clientele any longer. It is totally absurd, please comment on it.

    Is there an option for Delta to create a shell corporation in Ireland or elsewhere, and then lease the aircraft for domestic flights?

    Why 220%? Any reason or thought behind the value of the tariff?

    This ruling has zero chance of being upheld on appeal. There was no doubt the ITC would rule for Boeing, as everything under the Trump administration has become about protectionism, whether it makes any sense or not. Boeing’s arguments were a laughably bad abuse of anti-dumping laws to try to cripple a competitor that’s not actually competing with them. This will definitely be overturned by the WTO on appeal.
