European Antitrust Probe Questioned

LONDON -- European aircraft manufacturer Airbus SAS has taken issue with part of the European Union's antitrust decision against Microsoft and has filed a petition with the court handling the software maker's appeal. "Airbus is seeking a clarification of one of the points raised in the E.U. decision related to market regulation," a spokesperson for the company says. She emphasizes Airbus "is not taking sides in the case," saying it filed the petition because that is the appropriate procedure.

Although the spokesperson declines to elaborate on the petition, a report published in the online edition of The Wall Street Journal on Friday says Airbus fears that the E.U. ruling could affect the airline manufacturer's business. The firm reportedly worries the ruling could thwart its choice of providers for components such as seats and galleys.
