RE: Airbus V Boeing: Radio 4 17 Jan

Oh and I'll bet the Boeing guy will start calling the Airbus guy filthy names and they will get into a fist fight and someone will have to call the police to break it up.

There won't be a fight. The bigger Airbus guy won't be able to catch the faster Boeing guy.

RE: American Will Retire 717s

In other words, they're going to keep the paid for P.O.S. Fokkers. Well, you can't argue with that. While the F100's aren't as efficient as the 717, they are paid for.

Oh well. It's not like they're going to be scrapped. However, it certainly doesn't help keep 717 production alive.
