BAGHDAD July 2 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
"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.
