Summary Box: EU claims compliance in Airbus ruling

FLYING RIGHT: The European Union said Thursday it has complied with a World Trade Organization ruling that called for an end to unfair government aid to aircraft maker Airbus.

TRADE DOGFIGHT: The disputed subsidies, which Washington claims amounted to $18 billion over several decades, are part of a long-running trans-Atlantic trade spat.

MORE TO COME: The European Union has brought a case against the U.S. over aid to Boeing that a WTO appeals panel is expected to rule on early next year.
