Bombardier CSeries Suffers Blow as First Client Backs Off

Bombardier Inc. will have to find another CSeries jet buyer to become the troubled plane’s first operator after Sweden’s Braathens Aviation AB said it’s seeking changes to its delivery schedule.

“We have informed Bombardier that we will not assume the role of formal launch operator,” Braathens, a buyer of 10 of the jets, said today in a quarterly filing. “Due to increased uncertainty we are discussing other possible changes to the aircraft delivery schedule with Bombardier.”
