With all this talk about Airbus offering financial backing to HP/US, I was thinking back to the mid-90's, when ATA placed a large order for 737-800's and 757-200's. As part of the financing for that deal Boeing took on a large chunk of ATA stock, and I remember reading in the newspapers that Airbus was unhappy with this.
My point is two fold. One, I wonder what that stock is worth now, and two, what Airbus is proposing is nothing new, just big business.
