The merchandise covered by this investigation is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 8802.40.0040. The merchandise may alternatively be classifiable under HTSUS subheading 8802.40.0090.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Scope.--For purposes of these investigations, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ``aircraft, regardless 
of seating configuration, that have a standard 100- to 150-seat two-
class seating capacity and a minimum 2,900 nautical mile range, as 
these terms are defined below. `Standard 100- to 150-seat two-class 
seating capacity' refers to the capacity to accommodate 100 to 150 
passengers, when eight passenger seats are configured for a 36-inch 
pitch, and the remaining passenger seats are configured for a 32-inch 
pitch. `Pitch' is the distance between a point on one seat and the same 
point on the seat in front of it. `Standard 100- to 150-seat two-class 
seating capacity' does not delineate the number of seats actually in a 
subject aircraft or the actual seating configuration of a subject 
aircraft. Thus, the number of seats actually in a subject aircraft may 
be below 100 or exceed 150. A `minimum 2,900 nautical mile range' 
means: (i) Able to transport between 100 and 150 passengers and their 
luggage on routes equal to or longer than 2,900 nautical miles; or (ii) 
covered by a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type 
certificate or supplemental type certificate that also covers other 
aircraft with a minimum 2,900 nautical mile range. The scope includes 
all aircraft covered by the description above, regardless of whether 
they enter the United States fully or partially assembled, and 
regardless of whether, at the time of entry into the United States, 
they are approved for use by the FAA. The merchandise covered by this 
investigation is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 8802.40.0040. The 
merchandise may alternatively be classifiable under HTSUS subheading 
8802.40.0090. Although these HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of the investigation is dispositive.''
    Background.--The final phase of these investigations is being 
scheduled pursuant to sections 705(b) and 731(b) of the Tariff Act of 
1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)), as a result of affirmative 
preliminary determinations by the Department of Commerce that certain 
benefits which constitute subsidies within the meaning of section 703 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, 
producers, or exporters in Canada of 100- to 150-seat large civil 
aircraft, and that such products are being sold in the United States at 
less than fair value within the meaning of section 733 of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1673b). The investigations were requested in petitions filed on 
April 27, 2017, by The Boeing Company, Chicago, Illinois.
