Here's a post that made "top post of the day" on ragingbull by 10byYEAREND.


Maybe it's time AirTran exercised their option on the other 50 717's? That would certainly help toward getting some orders for Boeing and quell the critics of the aircraft. Joe L. should call them up and say "Hell, we'll take as many as you can build - bring 'em on!" Of course, if they strike a deal now, then we're at the head of the line to receive them. Also, we might get a little better price.

Someone said on this board that Boeing was waiting to announce orders until after the AirTran delivery so as not to steal AirTran's thunder. Sounds like Airbus is trying to steal Boeing's thunder with the timing of this announcement. Maybe we'll hit 'em from the left and right side like Chipper jones did last night on Friday when we take delivery of the first 717 and order 50 more...

Still no formal confirmation, from all that I read on this board, (didn't see the interview yesterday), about missing earnings. Maybe it's too close to call at this point or the new CFO is doing some "refiguring"?

Hang on to your seats this week, it should be wild!


Looks like ragingbull had some activity about aair.
