Boeing has itself endured a period of internal turmoil that has seen the departure of two chief executives and one chief financial officer, not to mentioning allegations of industrial espionage among other scandals. That the company has emerged from the crisis stronger as a result is shown by the fact that Airbus might not enjoy the same degree of dominance it has done over recent years.
