Of course, government subsidies don't hurt, do they Airbus?
If it ain’t Boeing, I ain’t going.

It's not like Boeing has been able to deliver their damn 787 yet... orders started in 2004. 0 have been delivered.
The 9th one is supposed to fly tomorrow and that is the first that will actually get delivered to a customer, All Nippon Airways (ANA), for passenger flights. The aircraft is still overweight, something Boeing claims will take about a dozen more built to finally solve.
It's not ground breaking news - Airbus has been leading Boeing for 8 years running in aircraft orders, but Boeing is is still setting records of its own with unbelievable orders on it's books for the 737 like have never been seen.
