As I understand it, an open skies agreement means any airline from either of the countries involved is allowed to fly any route they want between those two countries, hence the "open" part. Not all treaties regarding air travel between the US and other countries are open skies agreements, usually due to protectionism on the part of the other country. For example, IIRC the US doesn't have an open skies agreement with Mexico. Instead, there's a more restrictive agreement that governs which routes can be flown between the two countries and how many airlines from each country can fly those routes.

Delta's CEO stated that they won't pay any tariffs:

Quote:
"We will take the planes, there may be a delay… but we do not expect to pay any tariffs and we do expect to take the planes," he says during a third quarter earnings call today.

It's not clear if this means he's not expecting the tariff to actually go into effect -- there's still an opportunity to appeal it, IIRC, or if that means they intend to take advantage of some loophole to avoid the tariff as previously discussed.

Airplane Airbus and Bombardier Announce C Series Partnership

http://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press...agreement.html

Particularly relevant to this topic is this point:

Quote:
Growing market for C Series results in second Final Assembly Line in Mobile, Alabama, serving U.S. customers
So it sounds like in order to avoid the tariff, C-Series aircraft for US customers will be assembled in Airbus's new plant in Alabama.
