Boeing should get Lockheed-Martin to buy into its Commercial Aircraft group(CAG). Bring in LM would allow them to spread the cost of R&D, construction and pretty much all other aspects of of A/C production. Now I am not talking about a merger because the pentagon would certainly move to block it.
Lockheed is was talking about taking an equity stake in the A3XX program. That would have consederable risk, the likleyhood is that the A3XX will cost considerably more than the $10-$12.Billion that Airbus has stated. There is also the fact that many carriers are moving toward the U.S. style of smaller planes, greater frequency. Boeing CAG is quite profitable in the face of stiff competition with Airbus. I think it would be a very good fit.

I'm still waiting for news of that 57 jet order for Airbus that we all talked about last week. You don't think Boeing snuck in somewhere to snatch it away do you? I would've expected the announcement to come at the show's kick-off to steal any Boeing thunder. Interesting...
