And back to Airbus, I don't think the interest in Airbus aircrafts in the US are at the level of the 50%+ american subcontractors.
So, is Boeing smarter than Airbus ?

For the U.S. aerospace industry, Airbus is the number one export customer."
|Quoting Tango-Bravo (Reply 8):|
When one sorts through all the smoke-and-mirrors, Airbus has made a more than equitable contribution to the U.S. economy. As I see it, nothing could be further from the truth when U.S. airlines are labeled as "traitors" for buying Airbus products -- especially when Boeing has, at the same time, moved an increasing share of their production overseas.
