EADS: “Looking ahead to 2010, the Group is still cautiously monitoring its production rates in a soft market environment. Delivery of Power8 savings, a better aircraft pricing level and further progress in space and defence will be challenged by deterioration of hedge rates and uncertainties surrounding the A380 and if unresolved in 2009 the A400M. October 2009 figures further confirm the bottoming out of the cycle for freight and passenger traffic, notably in emerging economies. Worldwide passenger traffic has increased for the first time since November 2008,” Company statement. Source: EADS, 16-Nov-2009.
