Airbus is good at the short route business, after they acquire C series production line. Comparing with BA, the cost of 737 is much higher then using Airbus products.
BA has a greater innovation then Airbus, the example is next coming 777x.
Think about what is the trend of aerospace development.
Many countries are also having second thoughts about purchasing Lockheed’s F-35, at least at this point in time. There are several reasons for that, one being that its software, the autonomic logistics information system (or ALIS) might be vulnerable to theft or hacking. Only the Israelis are permitted to modify ALIS.
Boeing is also the primary contractor for the Ground Based Missile defense program (GMD) and will play an important role in replacing the U.S. Minuteman III with the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent missile (GBSD).
So, IMHO, Boeing will remain a significant player in fighter aircraft and space systems for the foreseeable future...
