Bombardier expects that most of the deliveries of its commercial aircraft will take place in the last three quarters of FY2010/11, as a result of production rate reductions announced in 2009 and the delay in the certification and entry into service of the CRJ1000 to 2H FY2010/11. Bombardier expects FY2010/11 commercial aircraft deliveries to be down 20% year-on-year. [more]
