Airbus? Who dat?

Nice to see the EU shilling for Boeing.

I am sure that this will not only boost the credibility of our policy on climate change, but will also help European airlines to develop a competitive advantage through investing in modern technology/methods like with the example of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will use 20 percent less fuel per passenger than similarly sized airplanes.

Heh. More here.

In 2003 the British left-winger Will Hutton wrote “A Declaration of Interdependence: Why America Should Join the World.” He bragged about how the European Air Bus consortium was a far more competitive enterprise than Boeing. How times have changed. The Air Bus fiasco has brought about an existential crisis for these “elite” thinkers.
