Well BBD still owns 49.9% of the C-Series/A220. So technically, they did get orders. Plus the 4 CRJs so far. Bombardier owns 31% of the A220. 4 CRJs doesn't quite compare the 100+100 E175s Embraer has sold to United to replace their old CRJ fleet. Bombardier lost a customer there.

I don't think Bombardier is going anywhere. But I'm kind of coming at this from a biased position where I'd like to see them make another investment at LearJet.

80% of the JV held by Boeing is more significant than Airbus holding Cseries in my opinion.

The models within each product line do indeed compete with each other -- but that's generally OK since the revenue stays in the family. What many are forgetting is that at present, Airbus will be receiving 50.01% of A220 profits rather than 100% for the A320. While Airbus only paid $1 for the A220,...Jump to post
No, not really. It would be easier for Airbus to rewrite the CS software to mimic the rest of the Airbus line with their side sticks. The CS would stuck out like a sore thumb at Boeing. No commonality with the 737,upcoming MOM or 787. The cockpit hardware is different, if Boeing is going to redesig...Jump to post
Nothing is final until they release an official announcement. Boeing/Embraer can still sweep in with a more attractive proposal.

Tired old tropes.
Hyperbolic false claims. The new left, ladies and gentlemen.
How much longer util the CS500/A250 is launched? Unfortunately for Bombardier (but they had to), too much of the engineering team was released (outsourced contractors). While a simple stretch, it would take a few years to design, a year to build, and a year to flight test. But as a betting man, I w...Jump to post

Another side effect that no one has mentioned, Bombardier will now be competing directly against Boeing in the sub 100 seat class. Especially if Embraer/Boeing create a turboprop.

Any guesses on a possible new name for the E-Jet family under Boeing ownership?
My guess, something similar to:

Embraer E2-190 ------> Boeing 717-800 MAX
Embraer E2-195 ------> Beoing 717-900 MAX
Seems to me that this is a possible future joint venture to replace the 737. Design/Sales/Engineering/Support carried out by Boeing USA and considerable/complete assembly carried out in Brazil (aka no unions perhaps). I think that Boeing will be using a lot of Embraer's engineers to help design a 7...Jump to post
