America’s International Trade Commission (ITC) overturned a decision to impose 292pc trade tariffs on the C-Series jets, which are being sold to US airline Delta.
The levies would have massively ramped up the cost of the 75 aircraft and likely caused Delta to cancel the contract.
But, in a surprise ruling, the ITC rejected a complaint brought by Boeing, voting 4-0 in favour of Bombardier.
The court rejected Boeing’s claims that it suffered injury in the case.
That ITC is less politically directed than I had thought.
