is the following quote:
Penalty payments to airlines that ordered a now-abandoned, less ambitious version of the A350 could reach up to €800 million (US$1 billion) in the last quarter of the year, Ring said.
Ring is the EADS CFO and soon to be the Airbus CFO, so it must be a true statement.
I wonder why so much money all goes out at the same time?
If one accepts the penalty payments, does that have any impact on your ability to cancel?
Are any A350 orders now "in the cancellation zone"?
Herr Ring may reget coining that particular phrase...
[Edited 2006-11-08 15:48:56] Ring is EADS CFO and soon to be EADS CFO... also clarified statement about "ability to cancel"...
