Gosh, it felt like MURICA! MURICA! MURICA! Coke vs claret?? Whatever, there is only so much bullshit one can take in a day.
The fact is, if Airbus had not been put together by Europeans, Boeing would still be milking the 747 for all it is worth... Competition has been good for the two companies, I dare say.
And another thing: ''Airbus'' is (and sounds) a lot more democratic and proletarian. After all, Boeing has not been able to put something together against the mighty A380.
Yup, the biggest, most proletarian jet out there is made by... Airbus. Not Boeing. How the mighty have fallen.
