A new ad released by Airbus accuses Boeing of stretching the truth in its ad about the performance of its commercial aircraft.“The Airbus ad — certain to stoke the rivalry between the world's two biggest makers of passenger jets — "ridiculed its competitor with an advertising campaign showing a Boeing jet nose grotesquely elongated to resemble Pinocchio's," Bloomberg News writes."They crossed a line when they started running specific numbers," Airbus sales chief John Leahy said in an interview with Bloomberg News. "They've blatantly misrepresented the facts."
Exaggeration or not, one thing is certain- the two OEMs certainly keep the world entertained and revenue streams of publications going!
