SEATTLE May 18 The U.S. Commerce Department
said on Thursday it was launching an investigation into claims
by Boeing Co that Canadian plane maker Bombardier Inc
dumped CSeries aircraft in the U.S. market and is
being unfairly subsidized by the Canadian government.
The Commerce probe, which was expected, parallels an
investigation by the U.S. International Trade Commission into
Boeing's allegations that Bombardier sold 75 CSeries planes to
Delta Air Lines Inc last year at a price well below
cost. Bombardier has refuted the allegations, and the two sides
clashed at an ITC hearing on Thursday.
