Boeing asked the International Trade Commission (ITC) to impose taxes on planes sold by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier because it would hurt their business, but the ITC says they rejected Boeing's request because Boeing isn't even competing with Bombardier. They didn't even make an offer.
The ITC said the 110-seat CSeries jets ordered by Delta (DAL.N) and Boeing Co’s (BA.N) smallest 737 MAX 7 plane do not compete. It also said Bombardier Inc’s (BBDb.TO) CSeries sale to Delta did not come at Boeing’s expense as the planemaker did not offer any new aircraft to the No. 2 U.S. carrier.
“Boeing lost no sales or revenues,” the ITC said in its 194-page ruling.
