Airbus not optimistic for Eurofighter export chances

Airbus chief executive is not optimistic when it comes to chances for selling its Eurofighter jet to markets outside of Europe.
It's expected to score one or the other success in export, but Airbus also has to prepare a scenario due to the lack of export orders, plus cancellations of core customers.
The production this aircraft is to be ramped down sooner rather than later.
One of those core customers, Germany, is reducing an order for the fighter jets and Airbus is currently in discussions over changes to the purchase contract.
The group was also dealt a blow when India chose the Rafale after a bidding contest against the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.
