Bombardier Delays CSeries Again as Debut Moves to 2015

Bombardier Inc. delayed its CSeries jetliner for a fourth time, saying the aircraft won’t enter commercial service until late next year instead of 2014 because it needs more time for flight tests.

The smaller CS100 model is now set to debut in the second half of 2015, with the larger CS300 to follow six months later, Bombardier said today in a statement. The timeline erased plans for a CS100 introduction about a year after the first flight, which came Sept. 16, and the stock fell the most since Oct. 31.
