Re: Airbus rebrands C-Series to A220

Great going Boeing. The only one who deserves praise here is Airbus for saving it. Who cares who saved it? It’s saved. It could have easily just whithered on the vine. Airbus was the best fit anyhow. I’d say that this is a win for everyone except Boeing, and it’s hardly clear that it’s a loss for B...

Embraer sucked big taxpayer money with the KC390, an airplane that no one was asking for and no one except the Brazilian taxpayer has ordered. That came out of blue at the same time as the E2 project was being developed. Others are far more expert about EMB than I profess to be but I think that's n...
