Boom said its hiring of an Embraer sales veteran is intended to signal to the airline world that its supersonic Overture jet is entering a new phase of development.
A left-wing political party on Wednesday filed a lawsuit to block the sale of 80% of Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA's commercial jet division to Boeing Co for $4.2 billion (3.3 billion pounds), arguing it will harm Brazil's sovereignty. The deal, which would position Boeing to compete more directly with Airbus SE in the market for mid-sized passenger planes, has faced significant left-wing opposition largely because Embraer is seen as a strategic company for Brazil's national security. The government has authorized the deal and Embraer's shareholders are all for it.
PARIS/ZURICH (Reuters) - U.S. engine maker Pratt & Whitney faces new checks on engines for small jetliners after an engine failure forced a Geneva-bound Swiss jet to divert to Paris and prompted a brief grounding of the rest of the airline's Airbus A220 fleet. French air crash investigators classified the problem that disrupted the Swiss flight shortly after departure from London Heathrow on Tuesday as a "serious incident" and said it would be investigated by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. It was the third engine incident involving the same airline and model of jet in as many months and resulted in a small amount of debris being scattered as the aircraft landed at Paris Charles de Gaulle, an airport source told Reuters.
PARIS/ZURICH, Oct 15 (Reuters) - U.S. engine maker Pratt & Whitney faces new checks on engines for small jetliners after an engine failure forced a Geneva-bound Swiss jet to divert to Paris and prompted a brief grounding of the rest of the airline's Airbus A220 fleet. It was the third engine incident involving the same airline and model of jet in as many months and resulted in a small amount of debris being scattered as the aircraft landed at Paris Charles de Gaulle, an airport source told Reuters. Swiss, owned by Germany's Lufthansa, said after Tuesday's incident it had initially grounded its fleet of Airbus A220 jets for a "comprehensive inspection" of their engines.
PARIS/VIENNA, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Pratt & Whitney recommended checks on engines on Airbus A220 aircraft and some Embraer jets after a Geneva-bound Swiss jet diverted to Paris with an engine problem, prompting the grounding of the rest of the airline's A220 fleet. French air accident investigators classified the problem that disrupted the Swiss flight shortly after departure from London Heathrow as a "serious incident" and said it would be investigated by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. Swiss, owned by Germany's Lufthansa, said it had grounded its fleet of 29 Airbus A220 jets for a review of their engines.
U.S. jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney said it had recommended additional checks on engines powering Airbus A220 and some Embraer E2 passenger jets after recent engine incidents. "Pratt & Whitney and our airframe OEMs (manufacturers), working in coordination with the regulatory authorities, have recommended additional inspections of the low-pressure compressor for PW1500G and PW1900G engines to keep the fleet operational," a spokesman said. "The engines continue to meet all criteria for continued airworthiness.
The number of independent jet makers is dropping. That means commercial aerospace stocks will stay popular on Wall Street for the foreseeable future.
Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA will furlough almost 15,000 workers in January, the company said, ahead of a partial takeover by Boeing Co , a deal that still needs regulatory approval. Salaries will be paid as normal during the furlough, which will last between Jan. 6 and Jan. 20, according to the company, as well as the metalworkers union representing several thousand of Embraer's workers. Boeing has agreed to buy 80% of Embraer's commercial plane division for $4.75 billion, a deal approved by shareholders and the Brazilian government but which is undergoing an intensive regulatory investigation in Europe.
The European Commission (EC) has opened an in-depth investigation to assess the proposed joint venture involving U.S.-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co (NYSE: BA) and Brazil-based Embraer SA (NYSE: ERJ). The EC has a mandate to assess mergers and acquisitions involving companies with a turnover (revenue) above certain thresholds and to prevent concentrations that would significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area (EEA) or any substantial part of it. The EC is concerned that the transaction may reduce competition in the commercial aircraft sector.
The recent delay in the partnership deal between Boeing (BA) and Embraer (ERJ) is due to the time required by the EC for an extensive investigation on antitrust grounds.

EU antitrust regulators opened on Friday a full-scale investigation into Boeing's bid for a controlling stake in Embraer's commercial aircraft arm, saying the deal may reduce competition and push up prices. The European Commission said the deal would remove world No. 3 player Embraer from the commercial aircraft industry while potential rivals from China, Japan and Russia would be unable to fill the gap in the next decade because of the high barriers to entry. The deal would also remove Embraer from the overall single aisle plane market.
