    This will be the 4th assembly line of A320 family aircrafts, after France, Germany and China. Not just assembly. Airbus has some major suppliers (engines and other parts) in America, so will support many additional jobs in many states.

    Will Boeing open an assembly line in Europe? Not in our wildest dreams :eusa_silenced: :cool:

    In Western Europe no one is building a new major factory. Not even companies that are doing great (Daimler just opened a new one in Hungary to build two new models).
