Bombardier once again has postponed a decision on its proposed C Series after failing to land an order for the 110- to 130-seat airliner before the company’s most recent self-imposed deadline of late last month. Apparently convinced during last month’s program review that a customer could sign soon, however, Bombardier has extended the offering for at least another month. “The project will be reviewed again at the next board update scheduled for late November,” according to a statement. The bankruptcy of leading prospect Northwest Airlines has complicated matters for Bombardier, which has proposed the C Series as a direct replacement for the carrier’s aged DC-9s.
