It looks Airbus wants to become a big corporation and control the European and American market

lol Airbus is a pretty massive corporation already. And isn't the goal of any corporation to grow and ideally, achieve dominance in whatever market they compete in? As a shareholder, I sure hope so.

Bombardier: the cuckold of the international aviation industry. First Boeing has their way with them, now it's Airbus' turn to give 'em a good rogering. Couldn't happen to a nicer company.

The interesting twist to me is, the C-series actually seems like a pretty great aircraft in its class.

Unfortunately it's not going to be the Bombardier family who are going to get the "rogering". It's going to be the Canadian taxpayers and Bombardier investors. I'd like to believe in Karma but realistically I can't.

Well, the taxpayers voted in the Liberals, and the investors invested in...an aviation company...so can't really work up much sympathy for either! :mrgreen:

That's a good thing, no? At least it seems good to me.

How does the Quebec government go from 49.5 % ownership of the C series to 19% ownership without any cash trading hands ?

Ever so slight course correction.....quebecers, of which I am the garden variety, even if I am an english guy, are pretty pissed at the billion dollar investment.

so no, it ain't the people, it's the high falutin political class that is to blame........
