RE: Leahy Blasts Airbus' Strategic Mistakes

Interesting to note that Airbus seems to be at an strategic disavantage for the near future. But to Leahy's credit, looks like he is trying to avoid the problems that Boeing went thru not that long ago, which was lack of a future vision for the company.

Damn!! I agreed with Leahy!!
