Northrop charges that tanker bidding skewed toward Boeing

Northrop officials think the Air Force has made crucial changes in the request for bids that put their company at a disadvantage. Among other things, they said, bidders will have to meet 373 mandatory requirements that range from fuel off-load capabilities to the number of bathrooms and crew bunks on board. All those requirements will be weighed equally, even though some are clearly more important than others.
