Airbus to dump 80 per cent of suppliers? UPDATE.

In a report from Deutsche Welle this morning it is stated that production of parts in low wage countries (read China) will increase by 50 per cent. That more or less confirms what I was thinking about this whole announcement.

Dear Valued Airbus Partner and Team Member Deluxe,

I don't know how to tell you this, and it hurts me far more than it hurts you, but if you're an Airbus supplier the chances are 8 out of 10 you're going to be out of a job. Just thought you'd like to know.

One other thing. Just because you're out of a job doesn't mean that some blokes in China won't come up with an interesting proposal at a good price....
