Boeing lost a key vote in their case against Bombardier. The International Trade Commission ruled that Bombardier didn’t violate international trade law. This opens the door for Bombardier to sell directly to US-based airlines, though they’ve chosen to form a joint venture with Airbus instead
I’ll admit, I somehow missed that Airbus and Bombardier talked about a tie-up on the C Series a couple years ago. That would have made yesterday’s announcement a bit less surprising to me. I can’t tell if Boeing saw this coming. And, I can’t really say what’s going to happen next.
The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
