    Is there, in fact, any way to make a sentence contains “Cisco” and “Nortel” _not_ boring? I can’t think of one. . .

    Of course you can make a sentence containing Nortel and Cisco not boring. They power the world in many ways, or did, and that is not boring at all 🙂

    Considering it has only happened 3 or 4 times in 30 years among aircraft builders, its rare for the industry.

    Also the other 5 China Easterns are being traded back to Airbus against 5 new A330’s, so we’ll see a split fleet for a while.

    Hmm, Boeing has figured out that you get more sales by being proactive. Good ploy to ensure client loyalty to the brand,no?

    I’m not under the impression that there are many takers on the a340-600. Unless there is a broader deal here – beyond 20 frames – I think China Eastern may have gotten the better end of this transaction.

    You can trade in your Ford at a Chevy dealer. This is no different.
