Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Youíre the only one that invented a link to Brexit. Even the Beeb article didnít mention it.
He's trying to link it to Airbus statements from a few days ago that Brexit will mean them having to rethink their UK manufacturing base. Which has zero to do with this story.

Actually the only point of the A380 story is stopping the production of that particular aircraft. Airbus have plenty of A320, 330 and 350 orders to keep those lines busy. The only direct impact of the A380 will be some short-term closures while the A380 lines are converted to the other types.

Unless (and not mentioned in the story) they use the opportunity to already reduce their UK footprint.
