Quoting Bmacleod (Reply 2): OK. But surely they would want something in return for giving out $6B or so. ACs 340/330 fleet perhaps? Or isn't Boeing purchasing those from AC?
The Export/Import bank is something along the lines of Export Development Canada. It provides and/or backs loans to buyers of American goods. It isn't simply giving the money to AC as such, and they would expect to be repaid.
