Boeing, Airbus (EADS), COMAC, Embraer, Bombardier, and Russia's UAC

ANN reported that Bombardier and COMAC signed
such an agreement in March to evaluate potential commonalities
between the C919 and CSeries aircraft.
The French news service AFP reports that Gallios said the
potential collaborations between not only the aircraft
manufacturers but also the companies which supply them are "a
good step. There are too many of them, and an alliance would
strengthen them in an increasingly competitive world."
