The Economist commented: The company insists it has the finances to see the project through. However, if things began to look that serious, Alain Bellemare, the new boss Bombardier hired in February, might conceivably put the commercial-aircraft division, which makes regional jets as well as the CSeries, up for sale. Canada’s government would not relish seeing a national champion fall into foreign hands, such as those of COMAC, China’s state planemaker. Canadian taxpayers might just be called upon to dip in their pockets and keep the CSeries in the air.
