LE BOURGET, France, June 14 (Reuters) - Boeing Co. (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research) is set to surmount Airbus' (EAD.PA: Quote, Profile, Research) 4-year order lead in 2005 thanks in part to a new unit that helps airlines fill gaps in their fleets, the jetmaker's sales head said on Tuesday.

Looks like the Boeing sales machine is finally getting into stride. For decades Boeing sat around like a fat cat totally ignoring the Airbus threat. A little dose of humility is always good for business (and for the travelling public.)

The group was set up in January. Was this Stoncipher's doing?

Does "filling gaps" include the B orders for mostly A carriers that seem to fill certain niches for those airlines either in size, range, or delivery window?
