I know. Boing are saying Bombardier's sale to Delta is significantly below their estimated final average production price.
But if Boeing were to take the 787 average production build cost on their initial counting block size, it'd be something farcical like double their initial estimated average build cost.
We've seen they have expanded the accounting block several times, allowing them to hide the "non cost" reductions as they've crawled along the learning curve.
All BBD would have to do is turn around and say we intend to build more than 2000 CSeries (they could even expand this to include not just CS100/CS300). Its too nebulous to tie down - anyone could show numbers that can swing any direction - with Bombardier citing Boeing's latest as a prime example!
I agree. Boeing is probably guilty of this too with their initial block estimates. They are hypocrites and are using dumping laws for uses never intended. But they have a great chance of winning this case and crushing bbd. it's business
