The only good direction, and not only for aircrafts, is to decrease the consumption of natural resources. Airbus has understood it, as well as big airlines. Boeing and Pdt Bush didn't. And in this point of view, the Concorde, even if it is a great success of technology, is a bad aircraft which burns...

I guess "Boeing in pdx" wanted to ask:

or

It's why Boeing and MD are considered the same.

As far as I know, the real problem with the A320 was the altimeter which didn't show the unit (feet or meters).
The pilot thought he was at 100 meters but he was only at 100 feet.
