What's the point? Sales are sales. The point is in the pre-MD-acquisition days, Boeing was able to maintain 60-70% market share with its 7-series family. Now, even with the Douglas aircraft, Boeing has been struggling with the market share for the past year and a half, especially the past six months. Airbus marketing has been extremely aggresive, and I'm simply making a note.
