(Excerpt)

Quote:
PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus outsold Boeing Co. in 2005 with 1,055 net orders, it said on Tuesday, capping a record year for both planemakers marked by fierce price competition and strong demand from Asian and budget airlines.

However, Boeing still claimed the lion's share in the premium end of the market, and Airbus had to concede defeat to its fierce U.S. rival in the overall value of jets sold.

Congratulations to Airbus for a great year.

However, Boeing's star is still rising, and the company has much to be proud of.

LOL. Good question. I'm sorry -- I did not see the "official thread" on this topic.

Would the administrators / management of this site please delete this thread. It's redundant. My apologies for starting it.  Embarrassment
