The transatlantic aircraft subsidies row has just heated up with the European Commission announcing tariffs on $20 billion worth of US imports, spanning a variety of products, from fish and squid to airplanes and even bicycle parts.

The WTO has recently ruled that the European aircraft subsidies have adversely impacted the US. The EU has announced these retaliatory tariffs amidst news reports that the US is considering tariffs on $11 billion worth of EU manufactured products.
