PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus (AIR.PA) sales chief John Leahy said on Thursday Airbus would probably respond if Boeing (BA.N) launches a jet in the middle of the market and makes it a sales success, but that he did not think either of these things would happen.

Boeing has been talking about an aircraft seating around 220-270 people that could enter service in 2025.
