"Mr McNerney told shareholders that last year 'we turned the corner and positioned ourselves for a very exciting future'.
"He said 2007 was 'off to a good clean start'.
"But he declined an opportunity to take a potshot at Airbus, whose lengthy delays with its superjumbo A380 sent many orders to Boeing instead.
"'They have gone through some difficulties the last couple of years, but we've had times in our history where we've run into difficulties.' he said.
"'I'm convinced they'll get through them and they're going to be the formidable competitor they've been over the last couple of decades. I don't exult in their difficulties at all.'"
