Boeing makes great aircraft. They are just behind the power curve when it comes to creature comforts for passengers, flight attendants and flight crew. BTW the Airbus fleet includes many parts manufactured right here in the good old USA (Think....Toyota's made in America).
Parker is out to make money, US Airways is out to make money, and Boeing is out to make money. Do you really think that ANY manufacturer would snub a pontential customer because they previously bought the other guy's product?? That's bad for business. TUNABOOB.
