The investigators have released their report into the Etihad A340-600 accident at Toulouse. Who will have to pay the bill for this $250m write-off?

Quoting Bells (Thread starter):

Some insurance, most probably  Wink.

According to the report, both people from Airbus and Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technology people were on board and I suppose have been briefed on the proper conduction of that test. So the guilt will probably be split between the two and paid by the insurances.

If it comes out that the people/one of the people performing the test were improperly educated/briefed on the conduction of that specific test, Airbus will have to accept the whole blame, I guess.

But that's up to the lawyers and a scientist like me cannot understand jurists anyway...

WARNING! The post above should be taken with a grain of salt! Furthermore, it may be slightly biased towards A.
