Airbus: “The recessionary tide has turned, and our success at this show proves yet again the world airlines’ clear preference for the superior aircraft of Airbus. What we have seen at ILA are green shoots of industry recovery. There is more to come as the industry picks up,” John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customer. Source: Airbus, 10-Jun-2010.
