I, in now way, am questioning our doubting that Boeing is courting Delta. I was just wondering if the report in the magazine was based on official/public statements made by Boeing, by Delta, or was based on "unnamed sources", or just educated speculation. I was also wondering if Boeing and/or Delta would use such public relations methods to influence a decision or demoralise Airbus etc etc. It is clear that Airbus is aware of its bad image in the USA. They are taking steps to clean it up. The fact that their web site is based in the USA (reston virginia) is such an indication. They are making TV ads as well. So I was wondering how much PR had to do with serious airplane buying decisions.
