On fuel cells that is. Both companies have announced that they will work together to develop fuel cells to use in place of the traditional APU.

If they are able to work it out the fuel cells would be more fuel efficient that the APU's in powering the aircraft when the main engines are not turning. It will also be more firnedly to the environment. Airbus plans a test abord a A320 next year and Boeing hopes to have a 440 kw cell on an aircraft by the end of 2006

Actually they cooperate more than what they are willing to admit. EADS makes parts for the Boeing 777 and 787.

DeHavilland a Boeing subsidiary makes parts for Airbus full line...

Is De Havilland Canada still owned by Boeing? I was wondering about that a while ago and I forgot to look it up.

Exactly, not a shock to the system.


You can be quite sure if either Boeing or Airbus feels that they can get specialist subcontracting help from their rivals (subsideries), then they will do so.
