Indian Air Buys $7 Billion in Airbus, Boeing Jets
By JAMES REGAN and CHRISTIAN PLUMB, REUTERS, LE BOURGET, France
Indian airlines grabbed the spotlight on Day 2 of the Paris Air Show on June 14, committing to buy about $7 billion in jets from Europe's Airbus and U.S. arch-rival Boeing Co.
The orders highlighted growing demand for air travel in India, China and the Middle East, which aerospace executives hope will power a rebound in global aircraft manufacturing that began last year.
They also helped to keep Airbus ahead in the battle for customers at the air show after Qatar Airways' whopping $10.6 billion plan to buy its planes on June 13. Airbus traditionally uses industry events to showcase deals, and Boeing remains poised to regain the lead in commercial jet orders this year.

Claim to be a Refugee rather than a Pensioner.... you get more mullah
It is interesting that the(Canadian) federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.00 and each can also get an additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of $2,470.00. This compares very well to a single pensioner who after contributing to the growth and development of Canada for 40 to 50 years can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.
Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees! Lets send this to all Canadians, so we can all be ticked off and maybe we can get the refugees cut back to $1,012.00 and the pensioners up to $2,470 00 and enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 years.
