Senior officials from Boeing Co and a U.S. aerospace trade group on Wednesday urged the U.S. government to narrowly tailor any tariffs imposed on the European Union over illegal aircraft subsidies to avoid harming American manufacturers. Delta Air Lines Inc warned that such tariffs would cause 'serious harm' to the airline, its customers and workers since the U.S. carrier is contractually obligated to buy Airbus aircraft worth billions of dollars. The comments came at a two-day hearing held by the U.S. Trade Representative's office on proposed tariffs on EU goods related to the long-running Boeing-Airbus subsidy dispute.
