And let me be very academic, if you want to quote what I said, can you please quote my whole sentence please? Not delete part of it, that is not a proper quotation, and easily misunderstood and/or misleading. Especially you even changed the lower case to upper case.
Well, when I answer part of a post, I quote the part I am answering to, and delete what I think is irrelevant to my comment. It takes more time than keeping the whole post, but I think that's what we should all do, since reading long quotations is a hassle for most readers.
I take full note that you object, and I'll try to remember not to quote you in the future, so as not to hurt your feelings.
You are both saying basically the same. That AB did not made it up to 50 and made it to 49. Even while Bregier said "we delivered 2x A351 to flight test teams" from his face was obvious he is not very happy to say such a thing (It could have been scripted by someone else....). Also the intonation was different than the rest.... i.e. AB itself understood they did not made it to 50 but that they are happy to be at 49 and sort of made fun out of those two "delivered" from one team to the other "within" the company.
I will repeat what you both did say - great achievement, and we do understand there was a lot of problems on the way - with the delivery chain, with obnoxious customer, with a customer (while "half way to its death") canceling 3 frames which would have been otherwise easily completed...... All those are hampering problems without AB's influence.
One more comment to ff - it is a long time practice to scratch in citations part of the previous post - and post only the relevant part.... As I do observe everybody here does it - even our mighty "boss" Fabien .
