Delta's CEO calls U.S. tariff ruling on Bombardier jets 'absurd'

In its complaint, Boeing alleged that "subsidies enabled Bombardier to dump its product into the US market, harming aerospace workers in the United States and throughout Boeing's global supply chain", according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

However, London's options in fighting Bombardier's corner may be limited because of the importance of Boeing to its defence industry.

But there's no escaping the wider political context set by Trump's promise to "fight for every last American job" - a pledge he repeated last February at (no coincidence, surely) the factory in SC that assembles the Boeing Dreamliner passenger jet. "What Boeing is really saying here is that Bombardier has an unfair advantage because Canadian taxpayers are covering part of its cost".

She tweeted this morning: "Bitterly disappointed by initial Bombardier ruling". (Bombardier builds the C Series in Montreal).

Embraer shares rose 2 percent in Sao Paulo on Wednesday, as the preliminary US duties threatened effectively to bar the most direct rival of the Brazilian planemaker's regional E-Jets from their biggest market.

The Commerce Department's tariff on Bombardier will only take effect if the US International Trade Commission rules in Boeing's favor in a final decision expected in 2018, Reuters says.

"Here's hoping the ITC does its job well and puts this frivolous dispute to bed before Bombardier delivers its first C Series plane to Delta in the spring".

In the second half, wide receiver Sammy Watkins scored two more touchdowns, courtesy of quarterback Jared Goff . Gurley, who had a down year last season, exploded for 149 yards from scrimmage and three total touchdowns.

A second ruling is expected on October 5 and could add to the total tariff, which is already higher than the 160% duty Boeing suggested. He also once again threatened to cut government ties with Boeing. Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that the government of Canada also strongly disagrees with the USA tariff ruling.

But the consequences could be far more serious than hurt feelings.

"This is not the behaviour we expect of Boeing and could indeed jeopardise our future relationship with Boeing", Sir Michael said on a visit to Belfast. "Boeing is committed to the UK and values the partnership, which stretches back nearly 80 years", the spokesman for Boeing UK said by email.

"We believe the key area of concern will be what Delta does with its order", Walter Spracklin, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said in a note to clients.

Bombardier is now in talks with three Chinese airlines to sell the CSeries, and it's widely hoped that deals will be announced in October when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visits China.

Canada and the United Kingdom will also likely view the USA with more skepticism during negotiations over free trade agreements in the coming months because of the row.
