They should drop xxx line! They should develop x amount of new products! They should develop a BWB, something that's never flown before in a market that they think doesn't exist!
Really, grow up.
Boeing is a company. Definatly in the last year it's shown it's profit orientated. Like it or not, Boeing is not going to have 2/3 major projects in development at once. If it loses market share to Airbus, fair enough. Developing new products is inherantly risky, especially in an industry where it takes upto a decade to break even
. Couple that with a volatile market, unfair competition, bloated management and workforce issues and give me reasons WHY Boeing should develop new products?!
The 737NG sells, and sells very well. The 747 sells. The 757 sells. The 767 sells. The 777 sells. They're all great products. People will say "but they're old! No one's ordering them!". So? How many A321s have been ordered this year?
If more Airbus orders are somehow a sign of a superior product, you've got to ask WHY airlines are switching to Airbus. In times of a (percieved) economic downturn, could it be the airlines are going for the product with the lower fixed costs and initial investment over the products that will be expensive but worthwhile in the long run?
