Re the "Forward Looking Information" box. It says something sombre about our litigious society when the disclaimers and list of your contingent liabilities is longer than any press release.

It really makes no difference. The US govt will not buy 18 billion worth of Airbus tankers, it just won't happen
I am a US citizen who thinks that (a) we really need at least 100 new tankers (b) the US Government should take jobs and industrial policy into account when placing military orders.
Nonetheless, I also think that the next few tanker orders should be split (say) 75:25 Boeing/Airbus. Why?[LIST=1]Keep competitive pricing and technology pressure on Boeing
Help reduce US/EU tensions on industrial policy, subsidies, and workshare
Over the next 20 years, an increasing percentage of our Reserve captains will be Bus drivers in their day jobs. To have them "train as they will fight", some Airbus tankers should be in the fleet.[/LIST=1]
Of course, my opinion plus 5 USD will buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
