Hello Forum Goers…
So basically I made this topic to discuss this topic, and go a bit in-depth regarding Delta ordering Boeing, then Boeing wasn’t happy, nor was Trump so they imposed taxes on the planes, Then Canada wasn’t very happy about this either, so they canceled there orders with Boeing for fighters, and instead they are getting them second hand. Then the cherry on top of all of this was Delta ordering 100 A321NEO’s.
I think I’m taking Delta’s side on this, Trump sided with Boeing on this, and I don’t think what he did was right. Imposing (I believe it was import taxes) Taxes of such magnitude isn’t ethical, I’d say it even comes close to ruining relations with other countries, (although I wouldn’t know for sure). Delta is a huge airline, with an expanding fleet and route network, so they will need more planes to operate to the area’s where the demand isn’t sufficient for A320’s and 737’s, and they will need a plane that is more suitable to these circumstances. So they ordered the Bombardier’s.
Delta is refusing to pay these Taxes, and I would do the same. It’s clear that Delta isn’t to chapped about this, and it did probably play a part in which manufacture they will order new aircraft’s with.
I think that ordering Airbus was actually smart, simply due to the fact that they are showing that there are work arounds to these taxes, and that they aren’t afraid of this issue. Airbus has a factory in Mobile, Alabama so that could be a work around to these taxes.
I think that Canada was also upset about this, so they canceled there orders for the fighter jets, and instead getting second hand ones. So I think this actually impacted Boeing, so hopefully those import taxes will be taken away.
Regarding those CSeries’s, it looks like AeroMexico will be getting a few of Delta’s.
That’s My Opinion
Yes I know it’s just OneMileAtATime, but thats what I only care to read, and Ben is usually honest. There is more but I’m not bothered to find the links.
- I may be wrong on some facts, but thats how I understand this whole situations.
- This is my opinion on things, you may have different opinions.
- I’m neutral on Trump, and my opinion isn’t based on me liking or not liking him.
- I understand that I am more than likely wrong on facts.
I’d like to hear you opinion on this, I know it’s a lot to ask bit can we keep this chat away from an Airbus vs Boeing argument, and people saying i take Boeing’s side just because I like them more.
Merry Christmas! 🎄
