    Airbus has had its wings clipped. For the first time in a decade the French-based company has lost its crown as the world's largest maker of passenger jets to rivals Boeing.

    Sales of its flagship superjumbo A380, the biggest airliner in the world were around one third of the company's target figure after a problem with the wings of the aircraft.
