Airbus Planning Russian Venture For A350

Fri Nov 17, 2006 10:39 pm

Out on Bloomberg...will post a link when I can

+ Airbus will make some components for the A350 in Russia (IMO they might make parts of the A350 fuselage there. They're outsourcig work into a low cost production environment which helps).

+ It now seems quite obvious that Airbus will go ahead with the A350
That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Makes sense. Take advantage of Russian technical expertise and lower cost structure whilst leveraging it into an SU A350XWB order.

It seems Mr. Putin's dialogue with the the French and German PMs plus VTB's acquisition of EADS stock in the open market are now showing results.
