More optimism from the clairvoyant Mr Leahy !


"Speaking on behalf of the world's airlines, I'm getting a lot of requests for the A350 right now, especially the new XWB," Leahy said.

In terms of catalog value, however, Leahy acknowledged that Airbus' share of new business has shrunk further to "35 to 37 percent" this year, as Boeing sold about five times as many large and mid-sized airliners, which carry heavier price tags.
