Didn't see this coming. Some key points:
  • Airbus has a controlling stake in the program (obviously).
  • CSeries construction in Mobile, AB is possible to avoid US import tarrifs on aircraft ordered by American carriers. Otherwise, it seems production will stay where it is now.
  • By 2023, Airbus will buy out BBD's stake, making the CSeries an Airbus program.
  • Hopefully, this means the CSeries will benefit from Airbus' sales connections and expertise.
  • Airbus now has product offerings all the way from the smallest ATR to the A380. Quite impressive.
  • Boeing must be SUPER ANGRY right now.

Woah. Did not see this coming either. I agree with you, Boeing must be fuming.

Well, they have obviously run the numbers on this. I hope he is correct, as the CSeries is absolutely stunning.

Agreed. Also, the Airbus (and Boeing) sales teams are very good at what they do.

Oh, indeed, my friend. I wonder what the commission is on a new build A380 these days? [biggrin]
