Now this was a real surprise - Bombardier won court case against Boeing

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-42825916

Bombardier has won a trade case in the United States, overturning a decision to impose damaging tariffs on imports of its C-Series aircraft.

The UK government had suspected Bombardier would lose and unions feared sales and UK jobs would be hit.

But in a surprise ruling, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) rejected a complaint brought by Boeing.

The ITC voted 4-0 in favour of Bombardier.

It means tariffs of 292% will not now be imposed on orders of C-Series planes by American carriers.

Perhaps this makes it less of a surprise.

It's best to regard the Boeing claim as a self inflicted injury. The order cancellations by Canada potentially far exceeded any gain to Boeing. The plane they were complaining about was not really in direct competition with any existing Boeing model.  Sadly, as the BP Deepwater Horizon case compensation demonstrates, the USA legal system is inimical to non-USA companies and is frequently exploited.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I wonder if Bombardier (Northern Ireland) uses the advertising slogan "Bombardier gives you wings" or would that be plagiarism?
