Both Agree To Stop Subsidizing Aircraft Manufacturers
"We need open warfare like we need a hole in the head."
Those words from EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson signaled a
break in the rising tensions between the continents over subsidies
granted Airbus and Boeing. Both the EU and the US have agreed to at
least try to settle their rancorous dispute over their allegations,
where billions of dollars are at stake. The agreement is also
another sign of a possible thaw in relations between America and
Boeing and Emirates Tuesday said the Dubai-based airline is
ordering 30 Boeing Electronic Flight Bags for its 777-300ER
(Extended Range) airplanes, making the airline the largest customer
for that Boeing-supplied system.
