Dec. 28, 2017, © Leeham Co.: It’s not often that levity appears in briefing papers in US government trade cases, but Delta Air Lines managed to draw LNC’s chuckle in its post-hearing brief in the Boeing-Bombardier trade case.
Delta’s introduction was novel to say the least.
Delta’s opening paragraph:
The pre-landing checklist for this investigation is simple to complete: no US produced LCA options for airlines seeking 100- to 110-seat aircraft; no lost sale from the Delta campaign; no lost revenue from the United campaign; no subject imports during the P0I; no US commercial shipments; and no imminent subject imports. Each of these facts support a finding of no threat of material injury. Collectively, they compel it.
Hundreds of pages in briefs and exhibits were filed by the parties. Below are links to PDF documents.
