I'm not saying you can't sir. I just think that loyalty to a company is one thing, but if a point is ever reached where they can no longer deliver what you need that's a whole different story. I have no doubt that Airbus is providing excellent products to Lufthansa who is obviously pleased.
I do not believe for a second though that Lufthansa would burn its Boeing bridge, or fine, reverse the roles and make Airbus the bad guy, I don't care. No succesful company would ever do that. Think about it, there are, more or less, two suppliers of the product you need on the planet, are you really going to tell one of them to go **** themselves? No, you would not. Not unless you are stupid, which Lufthansa is clearly not. No matter who they are. What if your supplier went bankrupt and was gone tomorrow, then what, go back on your hands and knees? One honcho throwing out tough talk is one thing, the attitude of the company is anonther. The man you mentioned "flicking them off", fine. But I don't see Lufthansa telling Boeing to "go away we don't need you or want you anymore" as a good business decision. And fine, I don't run an airline, but if one of the officers in the company I work for ever pulled something like that, they'd be out. End of story.
I have a lot of respect for Airbus, but I REFUSE to get mired in the endless Airbus vs. Boeing debate. I think they both make fine airplanes. And that's what its about for us, isn't it?
