The Man Who Sold The Sky ??

John Leahy helped Airbus push Boeing out of the number one position in plane sales. Can the best salesman in the business keep Europe at the top? 

Read the speical Reuter's report on the man who sold the sky! 

One warm July evening three years ago, John Leahy set off along London’s river Thames in an electric punt. With Leahy, a sharp and energetic New Yorker who has been Airbus sales chief since 1994, were the company’s Middle East president Habib Fekih and Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airlines, one of the fastest-growing airlines in the world. Dubai-based Emirates was the largest customer for Airbus’s A380 superjumbo but Leahy wanted Clark to confirm his support for the A350, Airbus’s bid to compete with Boeing's drealiner -    the report continues here.
