Boeing Tells Airbus It Won't Tolerate More Subsidies
The latest salvo in the transatlantic war of words between
Boeing and Airbus comes from Chicago: Don't even think about
Boeing's warning comes after Airbus announced plans to go ahead
with its answer to the 7E7, the A350.
"Boeing's concern with the A350 is whether Airbus seeks
government support for the airplane," Boeing spokeswoman Amanda
Landers told the French news agency AFP. "New subsidies such as
'launch aid' must end," she said.
The US and EU are locked in battle before the World Trade
Organization over allegations that both have taken subsidies in
violation of a 1992 agreement on the matter. The US last month
unilaterally pulled out of the deal.
