United States Rules In Favor Of Boeing, Slaps Bombardier With Tax

US confirms 300% duties on disputed Bombardier jets, a win for Boeing

Boeing filed the case against its Canadian rival after Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL - news) ordered 75 of the C-Series planes that can seat 100-150 passengers.

"This decision is based on a full and unbiased review of the facts in an open and transparent process", Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement.

Bombardier called the USA decision "deeply disappointing" and said they expect the ITC to "reach the right conclusion, which is that the C Series benefits the US aerospace industry, US airlines and the US flying public". Another duty of 212.39% was set to offset Bombardier's benefits from unfair subsidies provided by the governments of Quebec, the United Kingdom and Canada.

In its final determination released Wednesday, the department said it will impose duties of 292.21%, down from 299.45% set in the preliminary phase.

Bombardier plans to build the planes in Mobile, Alabama, where Airbus assembles narrow-body jets.

Apple admits to slowing down older iPhones
The outcome is generally a stage where the phone shuts down inadvertently, and Apple is trying to prevent these random shutdown. He found some of these older iPhones did indeed appear to have been deliberately slowed down.

The decision is not necessarily final; it could be overturned if the U.S. International Trade Commission finds that Boeing did not suffer material injury as a result of the Delta sale; the ITC's final decision is expected on february 1.

"Today's decision validates Boeing's complaints regarding Bombardier's pricing in the United States, pricing that has harmed our workforce and USA industry", Boeing said in a statement. The trade dispute stems from a complaint by USA aerospace giant Boeing against its Canadian rival that found a receptive ear in President Donald Trump, whose "America First" agenda has included taking a tough line in matters of global commerce.

Bombardier was able to underprice the jets due to $3 billion in unfair government subsidies, Boeing says.

"There's no case here", Bombardier's Bellemare said, calling the complaint "ridiculous".

Bombardier has said it's committed to opening a CSeries final assembly line in Mobile as part of a pending deal with Airbus, which has agreed to take an ownership stake in a CSeries joint venture with Bombardier and Investissement Quebec after clearing anti-trust reviews.

Bombardier also has argued that Boeing does not manufacture a direct competitor to the CS 100, and its robust order book of 737 planes proves it has not been adversely affected by unfair trade.

"Attempts by Boeing to put tens of thousands of aerospace workers out of work across Canada is not something we look on positively", Trudeau said in October after pressing Trump on the matter.

Boeing, she said, is seeking to "advance its market dominance by excluding Bombardier's C Series aircraft from the United States market".

Bombardier argues that they wouldn't since Boeing does not make an aircraft the size of the 100- to 130-seat CS 100.
