RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer (EMBR3.SA) said on Friday it supports Brazil’s request that the World Trade Organization examine “billions of dollars of subsidies” for Canadian rival Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO) and its CSeries aircraft.

The statement came just after Bombardier won an unexpected trade victory against U.S. planemaker Boeing Co (BA.N) when a U.S. agency rejected imposing hefty duties on sales of Bombardier’s new CSeries jet to American carriers.
