Additional A380 Program Delays? Read On

Forbes is reporting that the French financial paper Les Echos is saying that a further delay in the A380 program is likely, leading to further reductions in deliveries in 2007. The Echo boys did not reveal their sources, and according to the talking head du jour, everything's peachy keen at the Festung. it is further speculated that any program announcements will come after a meeting of the EADS board scheduled for 29 September.

Now. All this is speculation, but with the information barrier at the Festung having more holes in it than a cheap Swiss cheese, something could well be brewing. These guys just can't keep anything under wraps.

Perhaps the motto at the A380 program office should be "It brews before it spews."

Stay tuned. We're on the case.
