From the Associated Press, via Stuff.co.nz, (http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/4046760a6026.html) fair use quote:

"Mr McNerney told shareholders that last year 'we turned the corner and positioned ourselves for a very exciting future'.

"He said 2007 was 'off to a good clean start'.
"But he declined an opportunity to take a potshot at Airbus, whose lengthy delays with its superjumbo A380 sent many orders to Boeing instead.

"'They have gone through some difficulties the last couple of years, but we've had times in our history where we've run into difficulties.' he said.

"'I'm convinced they'll get through them and they're going to be the formidable competitor they've been over the last couple of decades. I don't exult in their difficulties at all.'"

Boeing is a very well run company. I am very proud to own some shares. And he may be right, Airbus just may pull it together sooner rather than later. In the interest of keeping innovation alive in this industry, I hope they get it right very soon.

Very classy!! Hats off to McNerney...  thumbsup 

Good competition keeps technological advancements happening. Both companies know this. Airbus will get through their troubles eventually, and learn their lesson.

Ditto that!

I think it's good for everyone that B and A are making great planes. So I hope that both companies will survive for as long as I live. =)
