Airbus: 2,000 jobs at risk over China order freeze
GENEVA | The head of Airbus says up to 2,000 jobs are at risk because Chinese airlines have frozen orders for 55 jets worth $14 billion in protest at the European Union’s emissions trading plan.
Airbus CEO Tom Enders says the move jeopardizes 1,000 jobs at the company in Europe and another 1,000 in its supply chain.
Mr. Enders spoke Thursday at an airline industry meeting in Geneva.
The EU introduced the trading system at the start of the year as part of European efforts to reduce global warming.
Airlines flying to or from Europe must obtain certificates for carbon dioxide emissions.
The United States, China, Russia, India and many other countries are opposed and say the bloc cannot impose taxes on flights outside its own airspace.
Bagel guru Lender dies at age 81 in Florida
HARTFORD | Murray Lender, who helped turn his father’s small Connecticut bakery into a national company that introduced bagels to many Americans for the first time, has died in Florida. He was 81.
Mr. Lender’s wife, Gillie Lender, tells the Associated Press that her husband died Wednesday at a hospital in Miami from complications from a fall he suffered 10 weeks ago. The couple lived in both Aventura, Fla., and Woodbridge, Conn.
Mr. Lender’s father, Harry Lender, founded Lender’s Bagels in New Haven in 1927. After Harry Lender died in 1960, his sons Murray and Sam ran the company and oversaw its expansion. Lender’s Bagels was sold to Kraft Foods in 1984. It’s now owned by Pinnacle Foods Group.
Murray Lender’s funeral is set for Sunday in Woodbridge.
