Warning...totally off topic, here. Scarlet...thought of you the other day...I was at the Benz dealer picking up a colleague (he bought a dog ass ML320 for his wife) and there was a beautiful black E55 with all the trimmings sitting under the porte cocher.

Boeing has been in the used aircraft market for close to 40+ years....they would gladly accept the Airbus A330's. It's quite common for them to take trades to complete a deal---all part of the game. Did they get burned with the SQ340's? Not if you consider the outcome. Would they do it again? For a ...Jump to post

Winglets on a 777---whether raked or blended--do nothing more than make a excellent aircraft even more capable....it not like it's 'fixing' a flaw.

Exclusivity deals were nullified. However, the volume discount purchase agreements (orders, options, rolling options) which replaced them (say, for <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym>'s 250 738's) include heavy penalty clauses if the 'value' of all aircraft are not delivered.

It's not neighborhood associations.....it's Zoning and Deed Restrictions that help keep it together. I think that's what you meant.
But the old adage is always true...what keeps your property value high is location....location....location.
I'm sorry, but specifically, how do you know what value your house 'would' have sold for? Houses sell for exactly what the offer is worth to the seller---no more, no less (or clearly you would not have sold). If you thougth it was worth more, then you should have passed on the low offer. Also, why b...Jump to post

Uh...last I heard, we had a bit more time than 20 years before oil reserves are depleted (more like several HUNDRED years). Otherwise, why would any carrier even consider buying a commercial aircraft at this point? At any rate, only 15% of the world's oil reserves have actually been tapped. It appea...Jump to post
Boeing already said (get a media password and read their speeches online) that the new 737 will bow in about 2012. Airbus has great products--but they hardly control the industry.

The interesting part will be when they have to perform flight testing without the aid of the flight computers.

The great part of Houston is entirely encompassed in the 610 Loop. There is NO reason to venture out of it except to: a) go to either airport for a flight; b) go to the Galleria to go shopping.
