The plane maker didn't hand over a single 787 Dreamliner last quarter -- and it is making slow progress clearing out its 737 MAX inventory, too.
Airbus is in talks with Italy's Leonardo to assess any impact from problems at one of its suppiers, Brindisi-based MPS, which has been linked to flawed components on Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, the European planemaker said. Boeing said on Thursday that some titanium parts - supplied to Leonardo by its sub-suppier MPS - had been improperly manufactured over the past three years. "MPS is a supplier to Leonardo, a tier one supplier to Airbus," an Airbus spokesman said on Friday.
The budget airline is sticking to its aggressive growth strategy despite its recent operational challenges.
