Airbus: Would respond if Boeing mid-jet succeeds, but unlikely

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.
