I am sorry, but today, Airbus is a private, profitable, European company.
Major shareholder is EADS.
Stop listening to propaganda.
The only help Airbus receives is made of loans that they reimburse.
If AIrbus doesn't plan layoffs today, it is for 2 reasons.
1) they were planning to increase production (and then have higher cost. With the decrease in demand, they just are cancelling this.
2) EADS does not only produce AIrbus. They have other activities (helicopters, military planes, space) All those activities will help the group to wait for the next cycle i the industry.
