7E7 will offer airlines a new airframe (they can't fly the same old

No ?


No. Aircraft have definite service lives.


Some helicopters don't.


Point to the modern passenger carrying aircraft that offers infinite cycles
and airframe hours.

*We* like European companies to be succesful for much the same
reason.

Really? So Airbus' success is a good thing for the Irish?


I'm afraid the only real risk is to have one company alone. Monopoly's
nevera good solution.

well I hope boeing comes out of this and stays alive, from a pilot
perspective I'm not a fan of joysticks on the side for flight controls and
i've worked around them.. they're pretty aircraft, I just wouldn't want to
fly in that cockpit.



I think allowing FBW on transports was stupid in the first place.

Allowing Boeing to buy McDonnell-Douglas was a bad idea, however.
Even though McDD management were idiots, having only one major
aircraft company just isn't smart.
