Re: Airbus CEO: "“We’re bleeding cash; may threaten existence of company"

IMO, they will cut jobs first in the non-core production countries, such as the UK and US and might get a Bailout through a simple capital increase, with shares isued to Germany, France and Spain. As France and Germany own 11% each and Spain owns 4% of Airbus, it is likely that they would want to in...

Re: Garuda looks for 3rd CEO in 3 years

Makes me wonder if they should just privatize GA; it seems keeping it in government hands is more trouble than it's worth and is preventing GA from being able to make proper decisions. For many Indonesians, privatization of state-owned companies is viewed as selling the country's assets. it's an un...

Re: "Indonesian government to force Indonesian airlines to switch to Boeing"

How does a country expect to attract business and investment, when its government intervenes into decisions of PRIVATE businesses (such as Lion Air). If a country wants to experience strong economic growth, it has to provide legal certainty, since that is one of the most important factors for invest...

Re: B737NG: Nearing The End Of Final Commercial Production

And Airbus still has 50+ A320/21CEO deliveries remaining... Was Airbus slow in transitioning to the NEO or just a larger backlog of CEO's. Some Airlines actualley ordered CEO's in order to "skip" the NEO's backlog and get the Aircraft fairly quick - even the NEO's Lauch Customer, LH, orde...

Re: Embraer CEO Talks About Boeing Partnership, Name Change, Strategies Ahead Of Paris Air Show

I hate press interviews like this "We spent a lot of time, days, weeks and months to come up with the name......Boeing Brazil" like really? There are soooo many things that are wrong with this name choice. And they're forgetting that Embraer is like a religion in Brazil. People LOVE Embra...

Re: Airbus 50 Years Celebration - 5 things Airbus got right and 5 it did not

One area I think is questionable: Although Enders’ proposed 2012 merger with BAE Systems failed, the recently-retired German will be remembered as the executive who turned EADS/Airbus into a single company run purely on commercial rather than political or national lines .
