An in-depth look at American, Airbus, Boeing orders and projections

The Australian Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation does a really good job in this story (and in many that it does) of giving background on American Airlines' big jet order revealed yesterday, and then backfilling with great detail about the narrowbody jet market for Airbus and Boeing. Those two split the big AA order, which made some analysts even more skeptical than usual about the airline's decision making and financial structure. This is an informative piece for those who want to know significant detail about the jet-building marketplace.
