EgyptAir commits to 24 Bombardier CS300s

A model of Bombardier C Series aeroplane is seen in the Bombardier offices in Belfast Northern Ireland

The agreement announced at the Dubai Airshow includes 12 CS300 aircraft with purchase rights for an additional 12 aircraft.

Mr Thompson said Bombardier's CSeries aircraft programme now accounts for 1,000 jobs in the North and every order is welcome. The aircraft had been plagued by delays and cost overruns, and recently was hit with 300 percent tariffs in the USA after a trade complaint by Boeing.

The Russian Defense Ministry said they were ISIS trucks fleeing the city of Abu Kamal in Syria on November 9, which the United States refused to bomb.

State-owned EgyptAir signed an initial order for 12 Bombardier Inc CSeries jets on Tuesday, marking the Canadian planemaker's second deal for the aircraft this month after a 1-1/2-year-long sales drought.

The Airbus deal should make Bombardier programme "strong", Musallam says, but it does not appear to have swayed the carrier's decision. The two orders, the other for 31 planes from an undisclosed European buyer, are expected to be finalized by the end of 2017, a senior Bombardier executive said.

Apple's £999 iPhone X suffering from 'crackly' audio, some users complain
This goes hand-in-hand with the expectation that production of the iPhone 8 handsets will be cut by 50%-60% by the end of Q1 2018. Hopefully this iPhone X software update should help fix it for those users who need to use their phone in the cold.

Bombardier has picked up some new orders for its C Series jets, which some analysts see as a favorable response to a plan to build them in Alabama.

The Bloomberg story suggests that Airbus bought into a struggling but promising program: "The C Series was two-and-a-half years late and more than $2 billion over budget when it entered service at Deutsche Lufthansa AG's Swiss International unit in July 2016".

EgyptAir is separately expected to unveil a deal for at least six Boeing's 787 Dreamliners, the first passenger jets made from strands of carbon fibre, said people familiar with the discussions.
