So this is how far Airbus has fallen -- they have to troll for news that some 38 YEAR OLD Boieng aircraft are being phased out and replaced by A320's.

The 320 came of age in the 1980s...
I think the 737 was designed in the mid 60s and has undergone fantastic variation and innovation.
A real shame
Airbus (A320) sold only 20% of the complete 737 production in one year. They must be in a real panic because of the A320.
The 737 has been modernized many times in the 38 years.
You can not blame a company for having a new fresh and modern product as an excuse for the other company that is not willing or able to develop a newer product.
You can do as others here and start bashing the A380 and the several failures or the A340 that did not perform very well in the last year or the A330 ( in general the complete widebody segment) but do not bash the best selling plane of the last years and the upcomming years. this is not very clever.
by the way the headline refers to the success of the A320 at an asian airshow where the A320 outperformed the 737 and for example Adam Air announced that they choose the A320 to replace their older Boeing planes.
