      Minimal risk to Airbus it would seem. And not many other options for Bombardier. Still no guarantee it works for either.

      Airbus got majority equity for providing a way around the tariff? Very interesting.

    Maybe Boeing will buy %50.01 of Embraer and move and E190 assembly line to Wichita to compete in small jets 🙂

      IIRC Boeing doesn’t have a Wichita plant any more. They sold it to Spirit (not the airline) long ago, though most of that company’s output is destined to various Boeing series at assembly plants in Everett, Renton and South Carolina.

    Would you say that it’s Bombardier throwing in the towels?

    Boeing really messed this one up. Made the C series so unviable with the dumping tariffs that bombardier basically gave 50% to Airbus in order to salvage what they could. Now Airbus has a new small jet with no development costs that they can manufacturer in the USA to get around any tariffs for future American customers.

    Did Bombardier really have a lot of choice but to get creative? Brilliant move if you ask me.

    Bastian clearly knew all along why he wasn’t going to pay tariffs and would consider a delay in deliveries. This backfired on BOEING big time.
