Well, I'm disappointed. To me, one mega corp is much like another. Airbus was just as keen and was willing to play just as dirty as Boeing to kill the CSeries.

They don't rule against each other. They are examining different issues.
The twitter reactions from Boeing do look as if their is some serious anger around and maybe the US government comes to the same conclusions, that they have been tricked by Canada and Europe and as free trade deals are not in fashion any way, they might do something reckless, even if it hurts the i...Jump to post
Doesn't Boeing have some kind of involvement with Sukhoi, as well?? Yes, they managed whole SSJ program which is a great success. They are also helping with MRJ program.

The best for Boeing, take a chill pill. Let this issue die down. Don't show up for USITC hearings. Even if you show up scream at the Commissioner so he/she gets annoyed and cancels those tariffs. There are several standard techniques to get out of this pickle. Boeing doesn't need this publicity.Jump to post
I'm not sure I understand all the Boeing Bashing going on here.

Nothing. At this point all the players have made their bed. Bombardier and Airbus aren't going to revoke the deal. The only change that happens is whether the Mobile FAL gets built.

New deliveries have a different issue, their inability to SLB. Last year EK lease costs went up by 30%. Reasons could be as mundane as newer 77W are bigger than 330/340/772/773s to higher lease cost.

As explained by the Canada TSB bulletin, the crew declared MAYDAY when approaching HYD and they were told the airport was full and not able to accommodate the flight.
