Boeing or Airbus, Airbus or Boeing, to be or not to be on either side is the question...?. No, the real issue is that there is nothing like good ole competition for it forces both airframe makers to come up with excellent products allowing the airlines to choose the type(s) that in their opinion suits them the best.
Yep I agree. Just like Apple vs Android, consumers are the winners.
Not always the case. Whilst the Adam Smith principalss of 1777 have stodd the test of time the market place has always been manipulated by politicians and inevitable those with greed, power and hubris motivations. This cancer exists in places where it should not.
Nice competition, good for consumers
PC versus Apple all over again? I much prefer two big player that push each other to invent, improve and develop than only one big player than will become complacent in no time.

So what do Apple's increasing sales, record profits and largest pile of cash of any company mean. Not sure if I understand where you're going with your example. (Can't be sure you knon either.)
