Well, I see EADS is far from finished in their quest to get more money for the A-400M program. The 500M Euro number is more than 25% of the money they are getting from the EU customer shakedown, oops I mean bailout. Now they are trying to shakedown EPI, when will they begin there shakedown attempt of US companies?
It's not clear to me if EADS started the process or if EADS is just countering EPI's claims.
In any case, it can't bode well for the "troubled A400M program (tm)".
There's a quote in the article from EPI saying "operationally it's business as usual."
Let's see, you are engaged in a serious dispute with your one and only customer, and your owners also have many other serious business relationships with your one and only customer, and it's business as usual, yes, operationally speaking?
If so, that's one strange business...
