RE: Boeing Shines As Airbus & A3XX Stumble.

Supposedly Delta Airlines is going to place a large follow on order for either the 777-200ER or 767-400. On this info I am only the messenger as it was first posted by DeltaAir. What will those numbers read when Farnborough is over ?

Earlier this year John Leahy was predicting 60 percent market share in the near future...I don't think so!

Let's Take A Step Back Here...

Thu Jul 13, 2000 7:35 am

I want to take a step back here and view the whole picture.

This is an exciting time in aviation. You've got the two aerospace giants battling the biggest "war" of their entire lives. For the most part, Boeing has not had to fight this way before (or Airbus for that matter).

I believe this fight between the aerospace giants will determine the path of entire industry. If Airbus is successful in their venture we can expect lots of big airplanes. However, if Boeing is successful then we can see lots of little airplanes flying.

It will remain to be seen who will come out on top. As for now, I'm with the home team!
