Chinese President Hu Jintao tries on a company ball cap he was given following his address to Boeing Co. employees inside the company's producton facility, Wednesday, April 19, 2006, in Everett, Wash. Hu, who dined Tuesday night at the home of Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates, was invited to tour Boeing's Everett plant on Wednesday, just days after Chinese officials confirmed a commitment to order 80 Boeing 737 jets in a deal valued at $5.2 billion at list prices

Fuel guzzling? New planes are anything BUT fuel guzzling. If they were there's no way they could have flown a 777-200LR from Hong Kong to London non-stop. New engines are VERY fuel efficient. You want fuel guzzling, look at the older planes many US airlines are still flying.
