No Connection, Really....
It is reported by Reuters today that those wonderful folks at Festung Airbus, the home of mealy mouthed excuses, obfuscation, dilatory conduct, unexplainable delays and shady stock deals in high places.....where was I? Oh yes, I remember.
The boys 'n' girls at the Festung have decided that the way forward is to..........a drum roll, maestro...............raise their prices!
Yes, folks, it's true. The Festung has announced a 4.7 per cent price hike.
A spokesperson (where do they get these people?) says that the price hike has nothing to do with the schedule delays. It's more likely that the Festung needs to raise a bundle of Euros in a hurry to pay down the penalty clauses that are now aimed squarely at its' shorts.
