Spotter, do you have to be so negative about Boeing ALL the time? I understand that you don't like the company and that's fine. But we are all airliner fans here. I happen to think that the A340 series are great aircraft. But I am similar to you. I particularly don't care for Airbus as a company, but I like the aircraft. It just seems that if someone mentions three little numbers, i.e. 737, etc.,you go ballistic on Boeing. Could we just agree that these are fantastic machines that we all like to talk about? Let's leave the bureaucratic stuff out of it for a while, OK? Please? I am being sincere, OK?
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.
