Political row breaks out over thousands of Airbus job cuts
A fresh row between France and Germany over the share of potential plant closures and thousands of job losses at Airbus threatened yesterday to derail the plans of the plane-maker's parent group EADS to overcome the crisis.
I predicted this would happen when I heard rumors of Streiff's plans (which I agree with). However, I'm surprised it's been so overt. I expected much more covert boardroom fighting resulting in the ousting of Streiff in short order.
