EU wants to fine United States because of Boeing

The European Union wants to fine United States because of Boeing.

9300 million is the fine that the European Union wants to be passed to the United States not to withdraw their aids to Boeing. The EU yesterday requested the World Trade Organization that pass the ticket. The case is a classic.

After years, Washington was able to recognize that ensured competitive advantages for Boeing 737 and 787 jets. The affected models were A320, A320 and A350 from European rival, Airbus. The competent organ of the WTO had determined last year that the American manufacturer has received illegal state aid, the EU supports these claims have not yet been withdrawn.

But the WTO also dictated, in 2010, a few million euros of EU support for Airbus were illegal. The two blocks are fighting over how to comply with WTO rulings. After all, it is unlikely that the fine be converted into cash.

Boeing said on Wednesday that put its global supply chain of parts under control for the production of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and plans to increase the number of airplanes assembled.

The company has equipped at least four 747s with larger airframes, nicknamed "Dreamlifters" to gather pieces from around the world for its jets 787, assembled in Washington and North Carolina, USA.

Boeing is trying to compensate for delays caused in part by difficulties in the management of the 325 suppliers that produce parts for the 787 in 5000 factories around the world.

Boeing produces three and a half units of carbon composite jet per month. The company plans to increase production to five per month by the end of the year and raise that number to 10 per month by the end of 2013.

"We had some mistakes along the way. We are currently on track to achieve 10 per month," Said Luckey in a presentation in Nagoya, Japan
