Here we go again:
Personally, Boeing is still on the ropes with this, as they
really don't have an answer to what NG/EADS can offer. The B787 is
still in strife, and with 7 days left before their supposed 'first
flight' and being 2 years behind, their only option is a B767 variant,
which is what the B787 is to replace.
NG/EADS will have the A330 and, the way things are going, A350
available. Isn't it ironic that with all the problems Boeing has had,
that they cried foul when the DoD went with the NG bid? They obviously
wanted more time, cried about it, and got it. And yet Sen. Murray (from
the state Boeing's plant is in, nonetheless) says that NG/EADS is
whining about it. Talk about Pot, Kettle, Black..
