From the Reuters article: "About 37% of the 135,000-strong Airbus workforce is due to retire this decade, led by veterans of its best-selling A320."
As the year 2020 is the last year of this current decade, I think Reuters ment "in 10 years".
The world of learning how to count starts at 0. Current decade is 2020-2029 inclusive.
Sorry Fred, the current decade is 2011 to 2020. The world, unfortunately does not start counting at zero but at 1. The current year numbering scheme start at 1 for the very good and simple reason was that the concept of zero was not invented until sometime in the 7th century which ran from 801 to 900 exactly because of this.
Correct, there is no year zero (just as there is no month zero , and no day zero).
Western (Gregorian) calender starts with 1st of Jan year 1.
Now, since we are in pedant mode . . . small correction on your 7th century:
year 1 - year 100 (inclusive) = 1st century
year 101 - year 200 (inclusive) = 2nd century
. . . . . .
year 601 - year 700 (inclusive) = 7th century
year 701 - year 800 (inclusive) = 8th century
year 801 - year 900 (inclusive) = 9th century
. . . . . .
year 1901 - year 2000 (inclusive) = 20th century
year 2001 - year 2100 (inclusive) = 21st century
Each year runs from 01 Jan to 31 Dec.
So the current century (21st) runs from 01 Jan 2001 to 31st Dec 2100.
Same logic also applies to millennium, but the masses found 01 Jan 2000 better recognizable than 01 Jan 2001 for millennium change.
Plus, the millenium bug didn't care too much for Gregorian calendar . . .
