Delta Air Lines will not compensate a tariffs levied on a sequence of next-generation Bombardier CSeries airliners.

“We trust we will get a planes during a concluded agreement price,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian told reporters and analysts during a airline’s gain call on Wednesday.

Bastian combined that his airline entirely intends on holding smoothness of a Canadian-built airliner, though will not compensate a tariff.

The Delta CEO also pronounced that he is prepared to check a initial smoothness of a initial CS100 jet, set for early 2018, in sequence to arrange out a deal.

On Sep 26, a US Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration imposed a rough tariff of 219.63% on Bombardier’s C-Series jet. A week later, a ITA tacked on an additional 79.82% preliminary tariff.

As a result, Delta and Bombardier now face a 299.45% tariff on any of a 75 Bombardier CSeries aircraft Delta systematic behind in 2016.

The Department of Commerce is approaching to make a final preference on a matter in Dec of this year.

Earlier this year, Boeing filed a censure with a US Government claiming that a business was spoiled when Bombardier used Canadian Government subsidies to give Delta a cost that was almost next a cost it takes a build a planes.

Delta and Bombardier both rebut these claims arguing that Bombardier’s planes do not contest with any Boeing products. Bastian has remarkable several times that Boeing stopped producing a 100 to 150-seat jet allied to a CSeries some-more than a decade ago when it canceled a 717-200. Delta is now a world’s largest user of a 717.

Further, Delta also suggested that Boeing’s usually due choice to a CSeries was a collection of used Brazilian Embraer E190 informal jets taken as a trade-in from Air Canada.
