And Comac of course.

They will have huge government subsidies, and they are (reportedly) working with Sukhoi and Bombardier to create commonality and provide a competent competitor to B737NG/32X

Same thing as Ryanair announced they order A320. Just marketing and pressure on Boeing.

I had to laugh really hard.

All aircraft that were proudly presented as Chinese developments are either old designs of western aircraft (COMAC ARJ21 as a DC-9 copy for example) or Russian/Soviet ones (MiG-21, Su-27), have most parts developed by Sukhoi, Anotonow or another Russian design bureau or are simply delivered from manufacturers all over the world - except China.


If I would follow this argumentation, I would be a proud designer of Intel, because I was able to buy a CPU from them and use it. Or a famous airline CEO, because I run one in my own little world.

Way to go AIRBUS


QANTAS group orders 110 A320neo's plus 194 purchase rights and options- WOHOOOOOOOOO ;D


Of the 110 A320s, 106 are firm orders while the remaining four could be either purchased or leased. The 110 A320s include 78 A320neos.

Also Transaero tentatively signs for A320neo
Transaero is planning to break from its traditional preference for Boeing aircraft with an order for Airbus A320neos.

Well that's exactly what I was wondering actually, people seem very keen on AB and I was wondering if it was some kind of EU pride or what drove people to care so much.

probably both... EU people like Airbus as well as American prefer Boeing or Canadian prefer Bombardier.

But from an objective standpont, I truly believe that Airbus A320 family is excellent, as well as B737. But the NEO version is adding significant value for airlines.

As for LH, A330 is great, B777 as well. A380 is great, but I doubt B748 is matching the challenge (luckily it is positionned on another market than the A380).

In the end, I believe Airbuses are more stable (hence feeling of safety for passenger increased), silent, less consuming for similar weighting,... However, I have some friends in the maintenance department who consider Boeing as safer since it still uses mechanical commands. B747 is incredibly safe as a plane.

Both brands are providing great products. My preference just goes to Airbus, but this is not because I would reject Boeing.

I like Airbus and do aim to get on Airbus aircraft where possible.

Both because I like the fact that they are European and partly built in Britain and also a close relation works in Airbus, he worked on both the A380 and is now on the A400M I believe, I also spent a week doing work experience in the "Flight Physics" department with Airbus in Filton.
