Bombardier says Boeing's plans leave room for CSeries

Bombardier CEO Pierre Beaudoin stated that the likelihood of Boeing developing a new aircraft with capacity for 150-220 seats leaves the 100-150 seat market unaddressed by any new aircraft except the CSeries (Bloomberg, 04-Mar-2011). Mr Beaudoin reaffirmed Bombardier's belief that there is a market for 6000 aircraft in the 100-150 seat category over the next 20 years.
