Once again, more emotive posts than objective ones.
People, when are you going to really discuss aviation?
My opinion: Airbus AND Boeing are both right. Both have very intelligent people working to and both forecast markets, but each one looks to one side.
TheA3XX will be a sucess because many airlines want to operate it in alliance-shape (the plane belong to the alliance) and not just in predatory one-against-one and 800 places config., but in high confort just 1st class versions as well. The 777 will continue being a sucess because there are new markets (city-pairs, medium cities and not hubs) for it borning each day.
Both are right and both porposes are complimentary.

p.s. Behave properly, people, although it's quite difficult when it's a Airbus vs. Boeing shape post!!!
