This week's WTO ruling has done EADS' share price no harm, with the manufacturer's stock up 3.4% on Thursday. Some industry observers are pegging the ruling as a mixed win for EADS and Airbus, although Boeing and US business and trade have labelled the ruling another win in its case against EU subsidies. Boeing's shares were up 1.1% on Thursday.
Elsewhere, a preliminary report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) found Rolls-Royce responsible for the uncontained engine failure on a Qantas A380 late last year. The engine exploded due to a defective pipe inside the engine that led to an oil leak. Rolls-Royce took 53 of the Trent 900 engines out of service following the blowout.
