European carriers 'overdramatised' export credit issue: Boeing

Boeing Regional VP Sales Marty Bentrott stated European carriers have "overdramatised" the issue of export credits (The National, 18-Oct-2010).

Boeing: "I think the whole US Ex-Im [Export-Import] Bank issue has been overdramatised by some of the carriers. I really don't think that [export credits] are providing any kind of substantial competitive advantage to anybody. If airlines have good businesses, good balance sheets, they will have good credit and their accessibility to lower cost financing will be there," Marty Bentrott, Regional VP Sales.
