>> Some Airbus jets are arriving late, new ones due for delivery to airlines, that is. Europe's biggest aerospace firm saying it will be a stretch to hit targets for the year, potentially bad news as airlines mostly pay for their jets on delivery. These planes among the problems, the new version of its big-selling A320 family, they're key to Airbus' ambition to dominate the market for medium-sized jets.
But the company has hit snags at its Hamburg factory. Even so, Airbus beat forecasts for the quarter, operating profit coming in at $1.8 billion. And it is sticking to a target of 800 deliveries for the year, but that includes a nifty maneuver. Among the total, 18 of these, until recently, made by Canada's Bombardier.
Airbus bought the whole program earlier in the year, rebranding the jets as its own.
