Power8 Delay on Rollout: Who'da Thunk It?
It's reported today by the wire services that the long awaited, much heralded, Power8 restructuring program from da Festung is, of course, going to be delayed. Louis Gallois observed that his proposals were not accepted by the full board of EADS.
It is stated that the board was not able to reach a consensus over which facility will manufacture composite panels for the A350XWB, although this seems to be a bald and unconvincing narrative lacking in verisimilitude, as the saying goes.
Think about it. Airbus can't make the moves to save itself from sinking because of an argument over something that's not going to be manufactured for five years? I don't think so.
Why am I so not surprised?
