Yes it is a VERY good short read. It certainly explains why Brazil is moving up in the Latin American pecking order of countries and soon will rival Chile and Argentina as the most developed or US/Canada-like in South America. That said I loved seeing the comment:

Embraer engineers came up with a new fuselage design it called "double bubble" that allows plenty of head space, legroom, and luggage space, and eliminates the middle seat. More than 40 airlines provided input. That innovation has pushed Embraer ahead of arch-rival Bombardier of Canada and set the stage for an ambitious move into executive jets.---Business Week

Bombardier is a company who's aerospace division took off during the 1990s boom and didn't invest sufficiently into R&D and look where they are now!

It trains its newly hired engineers not only in aeronautics but also in market research and finance.

That's interesting! Good idea, too.

I think the 737 was the first aicraft to use the "double-bubble" design... but in any case, it is a useful design.

It's not THAT short. Scroll down, there is more under that add.

I know the 707 had the double bubble design, and I think Boeings last props had the double bubble also.

The 707, 727, 737, and 757 all share the same fuselage crosssection.
