Bombardier: Boeing indecision gives company more room in marketing CSeries

Bombardier Aerospace CEO Guy Hachey said that the indecision displayed by Boeing over its narrowbody aircraft programme gives Bombardier’s CSeries a “wider opening” in its sales pitch to customers (Reuters, 22-Jun-2011). Mr Hachey confirmed Bombardier was in advanced talks with five to seven more customers and could announce more orders for the CSeries soon. Bombardier hopes to have 200-300 firm orders for the aircraft by the time deliveries commence in 2013.
