Before anything, it is nice to see such heavy competition between Boeing and Airbus. Nevertheless, it is clear that Airbus have the upper hand. Analysing the diffirent components of Boeing, it seems to me that the company is simply making larger aircraft, without making direct replacements for the ones produced uptill now. My best example is the B767-200. This aircraft is intended on seating about 200 in a medium density, two-class configuration. The B767-300 was an alternative at the time, and was basically a stretched version of the 200. Yet, today, there are no indications that Boeing is intending on having a direct substitute for the B767-200s. Taking this into consideration, I could conclude that Boeing is ignoring a segment of the market that demand an aircraft such as the B767-200 for its long-range flights.
Does anyone share my opinion on this subject?
