Company Hopes To Avoid The Problems Of Success By all accounts, it's good to be Boeing right now. With the days counting down to the end of 2005, it looks all but assured the Chicago, IL-based aerospace manufacturer will accomplish their goal of besting rival Airbus for the commercial airliner sales crown for the first time in five years, on sales almost exclusively from overseas carriers in India and the east. The company, already on track for its best sales year in almost two decades, is also working to bringing innovative new products such as the 787 Dreamliner to the market, while also updating its standard-bearer 747 to better compete with the mammoth Airbus A380.
