Belfast factory jobs at risk amid Bombardier and Boeing feud

JetBlue is the latest USA airline to back Bombardier in its trade dispute with Boeing, ahead of the expected imposition of preliminary export duties on shipments to the United States.

JetBlue Airways Corp.is urging USA regulators to reject Boeing Co.'s fair-trade complaints against Bombardier Inc.as the New York-based airline considers adding new planes to its fleet. Boeing said the firm was "dumping" them on the United States market by selling them below cost price and benefiting from subsidies.

In his letter, Hayes urged the commission "to reject the petitions and permit free and unfettered competition in the aircraft manufacturing sector".

Just as competition from Airbus drove innovation among larger aircraft, Hayes said the CSeries will improve competition with Embraer which also makes smaller aircraft.

JetBlue plans to decide by the end of the year on changes to its fleet, including whether to replace its Embraer SA E190s, possibly with the C Series.

The letter is similar to submissions by Spirit Airlines and Sun Country Airlines.

The U.S. Commerce Department will release a preliminary ruling Tuesday on whether to impose countervailing duties on Bombardier. Boeing has complained about its Canadian rival's contract with Delta to build as many as 125 of the aircraft.

The C Series is the only aircraft offering five seats abreast, aligning it with JetBlue's "history of product differentiation", he said, and has potential to reduce operating costs in line with JetBlue's low-priced model. One of the authors moved to the region some years ago while the other was born and raised in Quebec.
