Very often we read on this newsgroup references to government
subsidies in Europe. NASA is engaging in projects directly aimed
at improving the competitive edge of US companies. In the last
few weeks NASA press releases refer to several successes in areas
such as engine performance and supersonic passenger flights.  I
am not sure if these programs are tax-payer funded, perhaps a reader could
clarify this, but if they are it seems that certain forms of government
help are indeed aceptable to (and acepted by) US airlinercompanies.
