    Funny how Europe insists the US not subsidize any of its industries, yet they continue to subsidize Airbus.

    Another case of European double standards.

    I believe that Airbus and Boeing have ,since one or two days, an accord about these helps : no more help for the two, so they will not be punished by the International trade organisation.

    That would truly be amazing, since I don't believe Airbus would prefer to complete on a level playing field with Boeings civilian production line. Airbus has fed off the teat of government subsidy since it's inception, and a Boeing executive would have to be dumb as a post to believe they suddenly decided to compete fairly.
