Did a search on "Airbus Japan" and I also didn't see this in the topic titles, so hopefully I am not re-hashing.  pray

Airbus plans to order more than 5 percent of the components for its new A350 aircraft from companies in Japan, seeking a foothold in a market dominated by Boeing.

Airbus is in talks with Teijin, Toray Industries and 20 more potential suppliers for the A350, Executive Vice President Kiran Rao said in Tokyo last Friday. The 300-seat plane, which competes with Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, may have more Japanese parts than any other Airbus aircraft, he said.

Manufacturing more of the A350 in Japan may help Airbus win orders in Asia's biggest aviation market after China. Supply agreements would also boost the Toulouse, France-based company's campaign to sell the A380 superjumbo to Japanese airlines, the biggest users of large commercial jets.

Unlike with the 777 and 787 programs, the Japanese would be pure suppliers, and not risk-sharing partners in the A350.

And there are rumors that NH has signed an MoU to order the A380. One of Airbus' goals with this deal is to get NH and JL to expand their Airbus fleets.

Airbus are following the old adage, 'You reap where you sow'

The Chinese are also getting 5% which includes wing flaps and rudders. I wonder what the Japanese 5% workshare is for?

Quoting Swallow (Reply 1):

I expect Toray will provide them with CFRP for the A350, as they do so for the 787 and are considering expanding production to support an increase in the 787 production rate. If they can add the A350, as well, that would allow them to expand even more, which would lower their production costs and increase revenues.

But again, this would be ahead of their RFP to be issued next year at the earliest, so unless that is all just a fraud and a show and the decision has been made beforehand (something you'd have to explain to shareholders if true) then the MoU rumors are false. Airbus has been "in discussions" with NH, but that's not the same thing as an MoU by any means.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
