Here's another surprise, but not for me. Since the day it was announced I've been saying that it made NO SENSE to be building a new CSeries assembly line in Alabama if it was only to deserve the CSeries US clients. Especially when PAID by Quebec taxpayers and Bombardier Inc. of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The new CEO CSeries, Philippe Balducchi just said that Airbus will not limit its new CSeries assembly line in Mobile Alabama (paid by Quebec Government and Bombardier Inc.). It will be competing with Mirabel, Quebec assembly line for the world market.
Philippe Balducchi raised concerns that the future non-unionized CSeries assembly line that Airbus plans to establish in Alabama would not necessarily be confined to the US market, as the aircraft manufacturer had previously indicated. "We will not tie our hands behind our backs," he said. (ref:http://www.tvanouvelles.ca/2018/05/03/airbus-prend...)
The deal with Airbus has not closed yet and already it smells really bad.
Did Bombardier Lied to Quebec Government?
When Quebec Government invested $1.3 billion in the CSeries it was done with some conditions to which Bombardier did agree.
Here are some of them: (CSALP is "CSeries Aircraft Limited Partnership" owned by Bombardier Inc. and Quebec Government)
"As part of the agreement, the strategic, financial and operational headquarters for the CSALP, along with the assembly, manufacturing, engineering services and research and development activities of the CSALP, will remain in the Province of Québec for at least 20 years" Source Bombardier: https://www.bombardier.com/en/media/newsList/detai...
