A typo, methinks...interesting as the image of an XWB A380 may be. smile 



Failure is not an option; it's an outcome.

oops, you're right. I fixed the typo.

This article is right out of the new Composite World from Jan 2007.

Honostly I think there may be an information "lag" at Composite World. This number (USD$15 billion) has been in the media before. IIRC this came up in many of the discussion threads we had here.

Sure it will.

A recent FI article quoted analysts as saying that it might be possible to finance the A350XWB exclusively from cashflows, but only if Airbus "threw a load of sixes", i.e. order intake remained buoyant, there were no further A380 hiccups, there was a positive exchange rate movement, Power8 was implemented fully etc.

Realistically, "throwing all sixes" on these issues is highly unlikely, but "predominantly" means most, not all, and should be feasible, provided nothing else goes amiss.

I'll try and find the link.

Regards

I presume they will apply for loans from their Govt shareholders, and I also presume you understand the meaning of the word 'predominantly'?

The full paragraph states:

Quote:
Despite concern about Airbus’ financial condition in recent months, the company claims the A350 XWB will be financed predominantly from company cash flows, with a strong contribution from the company’s new Power8 program which adds risk-sharing partners to the manufacturing mix — such partners may include outsourcing subcontractors. If needed, Gallois says Airbus will go to global capital markets for additional funding.

Not a word about launch aid.
