Delta throws Bombardier a lifeline with deal to buy 75 CSeries

April 28 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc on Thursday
said it ordered 75 CSeries CS100 planes from Bombardier Inc
, throwing a lifeline to a new aircraft program that is
years late and billions of dollars over budget.
    The widely anticipated order marks a turning point for
Canada's Bombardier as it strives to break into the fleets of
top airlines globally and serve a niche market for 100-seat
planes that larger rivals Boeing Co and Airbus Group SE
 have neglected.
