biggest problem Airbus has got is the skilled labour and design house in the UK, they have wanted to shift production of wings for years ever since BAe sold out. ... Just the autoclaves and high precision drilling jigs don't travel very well and take months if not years to move. And even when you do move them they are never quiet the same again.

Getting the labour base up to speed and producing the same quality as before. years and years.

Anyway P&O has been owned by Dubai Ports for over a decade. Last time I was on one of their tubs most staff were none EU nationals. Per say a change of flag makes no difference to their operation or crews.
