BAGHDAD July 2 (Reuters) - European aerospace and defence group EADS EAD.PA aims to sell Airbus planes to Iraqi Airways and break the monopoly currently enjoyed by Boeing (BA.N) with that airline, Chief Executive Louis Gallois said on Thursday.

Gallois was in Baghdad on a visit with French Prime Minister Francois Fillon.

"They have an airline that has only Boeing planes. For me that is a provocation," Gallois joked. "That will be a provisional situation that will not last," he added. (Reporting by Julien Ponthus; Writing by Marcel Michelson; Editing by Greg Mahlich)
