Boeing and Airbus will merge and some models, like the 737, may be discontinued

Seattle, WA - Boeing and Airbus have announced a merger of their companies, effectively ending a bitter rivalry between the two companies.

Boeing, a US plane manufacturer, has long dominated the airplane industry until recently, when Airbus, a European airplane manufacturer, became a strong competitor, overtaking Boeing in sales and deliveries since 2003.

The companies announced that their merger will start by combining two airplane models into one, resulting in the first united plane. The naming of the plane is still disputed. Airbus has a sequence of 3XX(300, 310...) while Boeing has a sequence of 7X7 (707, 717...). Rumors are that the plane could be dubbed the AB 397 ,the next sequence from both manufacturers.

As for current lines of productions, the companies said they will take into account which planes are fuel efficient and which have greater demand. Those models that already have orders will be completed and some models may be put out of production.

The companies are expected to fully merge in the next year or so, and will hold 40% of the new company, with private investors holding 20% of the company.
