I find it incredible to read some of the stuff posted on this site. I know there is generally good intention on the part of the participants but sometimes we have just got to stop for a second and THINK!!! There is a recent post wondering if Boeings exclusive contracts are legal!!! Of course they are legal!!! The EU didn't like them because Airbus was not a prospective vendor to these major accounts but to question if Boeing, a New York Stock Exchange Listed company and one of the world's largest manufacturers, employers, and exporters is openly defying the law in deals with American, Continental, and Delta is ABSOLUTELY PREPOSTERSOUS. These deals were openly discussed and it was NO SURPRISE to anyone. And make no mistake, if Airbus can cut the same deal, they will!!!! I apologize if my language seems strong but there has to be some sanity in some of these postings otherwise we will sound like children.
