On the way back instead of driving the highway to Rostock the driver took the older road directly to straalsund and we went into a Soviet military "exersize". We were forced to drive back to Berlin and back to rostock

Re: Why isn't Airbus more profitable?

Considering that Airbus has invested in a new program 350, updated 2 existing 320 and 330, built centers in China and USA in the same time I think the last 10 years is impressive. That is the reason why only looking at cashflow might be not correct as well. Airbus spent the 1990s to today to move fr...
