Further to my repky where I said I hadn't heard anything about the above,
I now read that the `EU Commission may block the deal if it affects
competetion'.  Maybe there is some relevant GATT clause but it is
probably just impotent bluster and probably stems from defence concerns
rather than Airbus itself.
