Delta to Purchase Bombardier CSeries Jets
CBJ — Delta Air Lines is looking to purchase as many as 125 CSeries commercial jets from Montreal-based Bombardier.
The Wall Street Journal first broke the story, saying a deal seems imminent for 75 planes with another 50 possibly on delayed order.
Delta’s incoming CEO, Ed Bastian, says the airline plans to provide more information about its fleet renewal plans at an investor day in Atlanta on May 16. Bombardier has yet to publicly comment on the alleged deal, which would be a huge boost for the struggling aerospace manufacturer.
