It's No Surprise That Airbus Is Thriving


Of course Airbus Industrie is doing well ("Giving 'em away?" European Business, Mar. 5). Without gifts and loans from "Daddy European Union," would Airbus be crowing so loudly, much less be in existence today? If Boeing had the good fortune to have a "parent" giving so lavishly for so long, the Boeing 7xxx7 would have been built a decade ago carrying 800 passengers sitting around an onboard pool.

Having flown transatlantic on the cramped A330 with 250-plus passengers, being on the A380 with 800 others is not a thrilling thought.
