April 28 (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc announced a much anticipated order from Delta Air Lines for 75 of its CSeries narrow-body passenger jets on Thursday.
The embattled Canadian plane and train maker also reported a first-quarter loss of 7 cents per share. That compares with a profit of 5 cents per share in the year-ago period.
The Quebec-based company’s loss was 3 cents per share excluding items.
Bombardier said Delta’s firm order for 75 CS100 aircraft with options for an additional 50 aircraft is worth about $5.6 billion based on the list price. (Reporting by Euan Rocha and Sweta Singh; Editing by Savio D‘Souza)
