    • Bombardier's (BDRAF, BDRBF) biggest customer for the CSeries aircraft, Republic Airways (RJET), is reconsidering whether to follow through with a $3B jet order after a change in airline strategy.
    • The 40 CS300 aircraft on order are no longer a top priority for RJET as it returns to its roots as a provider of regional flights for larger carriers, CEO Bryan Bedford says, adding to doubts about whether Bombardier can complete a deal valued first announced in 2010.
    • Since then, Bombardier has had to postpone the debut of the model it sees as a mainstay of future revenue, and RJET has dropped plans to compete with major airlines by flying full-size jetliners such as the CSeries.
