In no way do I want this to become an Airbus VS Boeing debate. Last Night I watched a "Modern Marvels" program on History Channel. The particular program was on Commercial Aviation.
The program stated: "The A330 was a direct competitor to the 737 and the 340 a direct competitor to the 767."
Now I could be mistaken, but wouldn't the A330 be a Competitor to the 757 and 767 While the A340 be the competitor to the 747 and 777?
Remember folks I in no way want this to become an A VS B debate, I am just raising this question.
Now, I understand that the media is often times wrong with there comparisons with airplanes however, I think that a highly reputable source like the history channel would be correct.
