The article reports that in a new twist in the ongoing debate over large civil aircraft subsidies, Airbus is signaling it would welcome a revised financial-assistance framework built around the type of indirect government research-and-development grants that Boeing has received. Airbus' top executives have long defended the loans and guarantees European governments provide to the Toulouse-based company, which offset up to one-third of an aircraft's development cost in the form of reimbursable funding. The overture comes at a pivotal time as U.S. and European negotiators try to hammer out an accord on future government financial aid to large commercial aircraft.
