At least Boeing is not facing this sort of embarrassment.

Oooops! Airbus A380 Wing Hits Building at Paris Air Show

Airbus flew a double-decker Airbus A380 to the 2011 Paris Airshow to put on display and to hopefully attract additional customers. However, while taxiing, the world’s largest airliner’s wing clipped a building ripping off the right winglet and putting the aircraft out of service and unable to fly.

They clip buildings, they clip other jets at the terminal. If the plane is too big for the pilots’ situational awareness maybe they need to have 10 feet clipped off each side.
