Re: Breaking: Airbus and Bombardier Announce C Series Partnership

And if I can remind you, Airbus Group is every bit as much as US entity as Boeing is. Which begs the question, is Boeing Group every bit as much a European entity as Airbus? If not, why? As soon as they start assembling 737s or dreamliners at the old Fokker lines through a local entity. :highfive:

Re: Airbus and Bombardier Announce C Series Partnership

But since Airbus now have and only have 50.1% stack at CSeries, as oppose to the 100% airbus-owned A320 series, any CSeries sold by them would only give them half the profit as oppose to any A320 sold by them that would give them full profit. Therefore I can't see Airbus authorizing the development...
