Customers at the Paris Air Show are bypassing Boeing (BA -1.6%) in favor of Airbus (EADSY.PK), which has amassed $26B in orders in the first two days of the show. The European firm has received large commitments from India’s IndiGo, Indonesian airline Garuda, CIT, GE’s commercial aircraft leasing and finance division, and probably a $17B deal with AirAsia.

    Boeing has begun to build airplanes at the "cheapest US labor markets". Do you want to fly on a Boeing assembled with $9.00 dollar labor?

    Boeing is failing this year because its $97 an hour labor in Seattle can't get a 787 out the door. Must be all those 2 hour coffee breaks.
