Totally off topic but if anyone is interested, Airbus has officially taken over (controlling interest) the C-Series Jet program and has renamed it the Airbus A220. At this point it looks like Bombardier Transportation will become a shadow of it's former self.

Eh. They’ve still got the Q and the CRJ — both of which they’re looking to double down on. Orders for both have been good this year, and with them making the Q good for 90 pax, I don’t see that changing. 

Also, FWIW, Airbus only owns 51% of the Cseries. BBD still gets $$$, just no stress.

I watched this video, which basically explained that the Airbus acquisition helped Bombardier get around a 300% tariff that Boeing got slapped on the C-series.
