According to sources who can be expected to know, Boeing Defense has been Black Listed by the Government of Canada. Boeing had not been invited to private events held by the Ambassador of Canada in Paris during the Paris Airshow where Boeing is usually invited.
How much is Boeing Defense prepared to lose with their childish accusation toward Canada Bombardier and its new top of the line CSeries aircraft? (most of CSeries content comes from the USA… engines, APU, avionics/electronics, electric braking system, entertainment/communication, etc.)
It's not only Boeing Defense that should prepare itself to lose, but Boeing Commercial Aircraft as well. Still according to well-connected sources, some airlines in the United States are prepared to cut all ties with Boeing if this litigation persists. Furthermore, some would be prepared to order more CSeries defying Boeing and its complaint.
First one could be Delta, adding to
its current CSeries order, quickly placing an order to replace all its oldest aircraft, 116 MD-88, with CSeries CS300, making this a statement to Boeing. Also, if the litigation end up requiring Delta paying additional charges (with Bombardier or not) for their current order of CSeries, Delta would cancel all its pending orders with Boeing ($) and use Airbus mainly with Bombardier as suppliers. It seems they would not be the only airlines in the USA left with a sour "Boeing" smell in their aircraft. Could any of this happen during the Salon du Bourget/Paris Airshow? This would be a nice move by Delta.
Is someone at Boeing in control? When will Boeing Defense put the pressure on Boeing Commercial Aircraft regarding a "Penny Wise Dollar Foolish" endeavour by Boeing?
The Boeing Super Hornet order cancellation by Canada alone is worth in excess of $5 Billion, including the maintenance and other cost. What else could Boeing lose?
But this is not only about Boeing… It's also about the United States…
Canada is now looking to order 88 new fighter jets with the recent increase in the Defence budget of last week. We know Canadian Government representatives are eager to meet with fighter jet makers while at the AirShow changing their level of interest in Lockheed Martin F-35 since the Boeing litigation in the United States. We also know that Dassault has offered Canada its excellent Rafale (*read more below) and also to have its construction made in Canada! This would have a major impact to the Canadian aviation industry, very interesting to the Canadian Government! Should we say "Thank you Boeing" yet?
Dassault is not the only one enthusiastic to push it far to get this very lucrative contract, also is Eurofighter with the Typhoon, Saab with its Gripen. With the type of missions Canada is involved there's no need for the "Uber Top" jet fighter aircraft at an "Uber" price. This would allow Canada to still archive its duties, save money and also create jobs "In Canada", something very "fashionable" these days with the ongoing politics, huge budget deficits. Very down to earth and logical to Canadians.
Do you think a few CSeries orders means that much to the United States? Again… when will Boeing wakeup?
* "Non seulement nous sommes prêts à transférer l'assemblage final de l'avion ici, au Canada, mais nous sommes également prêts à associer l'industrie aéronautique canadienne à la production de certains éléments de cet avion" Yves Robins, vice-président principal, Dassault Aviation
he said also...
"Should the Canadian industry wish to assemble or produce part of the Rafale in Canada, we are fully open to it" - "intellectual property" associated with the Rafale would be part of any sale, including the source codes for the fighter's computer system as well as the know-how to adapt and update the aircraft — both hardware and software — throughout its lifespan and is willing to have the planes assembled in Canada
"The Rafale will be Canadianized,"
"transfer of technology to the Canadian industry, creating high-value jobs and integrating the Canadian industry in the global supply chain."
Robins said in an interview the jobs created in Canada would far exceed those that would flow from a purchase of the F-35
