Noel Forgeard is still fighting to keep his post at troubled planemaker Airbus, Bloomberg reports.

Noel Forgeard co-chief executive of Airbus's parent, said he won't quit following delays in the delivery of A380 superjumbo jets and questions about his sale of shares, resisting pressure from the group's German shareholder.
Forgeard, 59, responding to questions in a closed-door session of the French parliament's finance and economic affairs committee, said there was “no question,” of him resigning, according to Pierre Mehaignerie, the committee's co-head.

Insert joke about the Germans not seeing this much French refusal to surrender since the first world war here.
