Airbus and Boeing do like a spat. And often, they take it up a level – as in this instance. Now the EU is to question what it claims are $8.7bn in tax breaks for Boeing from Washington State. The move follows a similar complaint by the US that European governments helped fund the A350 programme. Both whinges follow a 2012 WTO ruling on both manufacturers, which said that each had received unfair subsidies. The question now is whether the aircraft-makers have complied with the WTO rulings – or ignored them completely. Answers on a postcard, please.
