The use of the word ALL in the above paragraph is misleading. I get the impression that you want the reader to beleive that Airbus gives work only to consortium members which are inefficient because they are located in Europe where everything is more expensive, as opposed to Boeing and MD which choose amongst many contractors to find the best/lowest price one. Since Bombardier/Canadair has worked on Airbus products, and since Bombardier is not part of Airbus, and since many US suppliers also participate in Airbus products, I am affraid that your argument looses all credibility with me. And why not mention those contracts Boeing awards to countries such as Brazil in order to secure purchases from those countries' airlines ? Would these really represent the lowest cost/highest quality ratio Boeing could find ????
