The air jet manufacture further predicted vulnerable future earnings as a result of recent problems with the troubled *A400M jet.

UPDATE: As per press releases, the problem is likely to be overcome by second half as Pratt & Whitney puts in every effort to fix an engine malfunction.

INSIGHT: During these three months, Airbus delivered four A350s out of a total of 50 it aims to hand over this year; approximately 650 aircraft’s.

Exclusive information obtained from Bloomberg reported bearish stock worth 4.4% – 4.1% bearish trade at 56.08 Euros. Shares of the company dropped as much as 2.56 Euros to 55.90 Euros – extending their decline this year to 9.6% and valuing the business at 43.6 billion Euros (at 8:05 AM in Paris).
