You all need to read this... on many points he is right... and some it's just PR hot air... A couple of revelations prove that Boeing will not stand still, which means no repeat of past mistakes..

From his blog:

"Something else to remember: Airbus is comparing the relative efficiency of the A350 - not due to enter service until sometime after 2012 - to today's versions of the 777 family. But Boeing continuously adds technology to the 777 product line - note the recent introductions of the 777-300ER, 777-200LR, and 777 Freighter - and we'll look to further improve our twin-aisle products by incorporating the latest technologies."

Here is another:

"Finally, you ought to view the "XWB" label with a bit of skepticism. While the A350XWB may claim to be 3 to 5 inches wider than the 787 (which adds little to no value), it is 10 to 12 inches narrower than the 777. I still don't quite get the claim of "Xtra Wide Body" when 2 out of 3 of its models compete directly with the 777, which is significantly wider."


Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!
