An interesting article on Airbus in the IHT. Here is a taster:
A much-lauded pan-European industrial process was in complete breakdown, an apt enough metaphor for the wider process of European integration that was collapsing at the same time with the rejection of a much-heralded proposed EU constitution.It also says that Boeing's decision in 2002 to make a midsize long-range aircraft, the 787 Dreamliner, rather than attempt to build its version of an outsized plane now looks prescient. Funny that. We thought so too.
