Two and a half years ago the result of the UK Referendum was announced with the government promising to abide by the result, a decision to leave the EU. With two months to go until we leave, Airbus and others are still complaining about Brexit uncertainty. It is a certainty that the UK will be leaving the EU. Companies should plan accordingly. The actual conditions under which the UK departs should be an irrelevance if all the options are planned for in advance of the leave date. To be claiming that you are uncertain and that nobody told you something was happening two and a half years after the event beggars belief.

While Airbus could conceivably move their aircraft wing production from the UK to elsewhere in the EU, It would surely take years to get a plant up and running from scratch and to achieve the necessary certification standards. In the meantime, Boeing will expand to monopolise the market.
