Airbus chief: A380 and A350 assembly could be concentrated in Toulouse

Airbus is considering a transfer of assembly work on the troubled A380 superjumbo to France from Germany, and assembly of a planned A350 mid-sized jet could also be based at the company's Toulouse headquarters, Chief Executive Christian Streiff said in an interview published Thursday.
Streiff's comments, in an interview with the French daily Le Monde, could raise concern among German staff unions already fearful that the crisis over the A380's two-year production delay could lead to cuts in Germany, as work on the plane is concentrated on one site to save transportation costs and time.
