Gallios: There Is Not Enough Business To Go Around

airliner manufacturers will likely have to form "alliances" in the
future, as the demand for new airplanes subsides.
EADS executive chairman Louis Gallios told the Spanish newspaper
Expansion that the six major players in the airliner market ...
Boeing, Airbus (EADS), COMAC, Embraer, Bombardier, and Russia's UAC
... will need to work together to be competitive in the
ANN reported that Bombardier and COMAC signed
such an agreement in March to evaluate potential commonalities
between the C919 and CSeries aircraft.
The French news service AFP reports that Gallios said the
potential collaborations between not only the aircraft
manufacturers but also the companies which supply them are "a
good step. There are too many of them, and an alliance would
strengthen them in an increasingly competitive world."
