    Well, at least what Air Asia gets from GE will be built properly. But if the powers that control air travel in Malaya don't wake up, even the very best built engine can't make up for the absence of training and responsibility.

    Now that Germany has put their vote in for Siemens, GE may have to be even more careful as to how badly they want the company. Sometimes, not winning the bidding war, is better.

    Germany has a synergy issue that G.E. is best to handle so as much as i admire Siemens i feel G.E. still maintains a edge on this situation.

    hope that GE board of directors say "whew we dodged the bullet" I agree with Dawndale that a merger with political strings, governmental interference, and Gaulish ego for it's own sake should be avoided like the plague. (Dawndale sorry to embellish on your viewpoint and put my words in your mouth, but I feel that your perspective would be similar)
