Actually the delay is seven months. If Airbus has a delay with a simple hose-and-drouge tanker I wonder what's going to happen when they try and develop a boom. Or when they try and set up a production line here in the states.
Don't know who the supplier is but since EADS/Airbus is the prime contractor they are ultimately responsible.
What EIS are you referring to? If you are referring to the KC
-767 let me remind you that since it has not entered service it's kind of hard to do mods on it.
In case you haven't figured it out the point I was trying to make is one I have tried to make before. It seems that you never pass up a chance to jump on Boeing but when Airbus has a little trouble, however minor, you are no where to be found. I had to bait you into responding to this post.
Never take financial advice from co-workers.
