Germany pushes Airbus for cost cuts on A400M

Germany's defense ministry is demanding price cuts and longer cancellation periods on the A400M military airlifters it has ordered from Airbus, but which will be delivered later and less equipped than planned, a newspaper reported on Sunday.
Bild am Sonntag quoted from a letter from the defense ministry to the finance ministry and the court of auditors, in which it said the ministry was also pushing Airbus to disclose its "further planning and connected project risks".
It has long been known that A400M military airlifters Germany bought would be delivered later than initially planned and would be costlier.
