That Lindbergs aircraft was superior is hardly surprising as it was 8 years after Alcock and Brown and specifically designed for the crossing so I think that gives them even more credit - Whilst it is a significant achievment I fail to see the real significance in a Solo flight as far as developing commercial aviation goes - Alcock and Brown carried some mail so actually a commercial flight!
