Why does nobody like Airbus?
« on: January 16, 2013, 04:57:51 AM »
I why just wondering why nobody shows as much of an interest in Airbus as they do in Boeing. I've checked the specs and the Airbuses are an equally decent aircraft, although they have a somewhat smaller range. So I was just wondering if there's something I've missed, and that Airbuses should be avoided.

Bahahaha. Had to laugh at that.


Airbus at this point in the time line is still largely out of the picture. Once the A310 and A320 are launched, you'll see the rush....

The A320 launched airbus as a major aircraft manufacturer and a strong competitor to Boeing (as the 320 challenges Boeing superiority with the 737).

Before the A320 launched airbus wasn't considered a major aircraft manufacturer.

In the next few years the 767 will come along from Boeing and newer 737s, but airbus will have a300r, 310s, 320 and take more "share".

Pretty much what everyone else has said.  The A300 prior to the A300-600 is an aircraft with somewhat limited applications in AWS.  There are only a few airports where its large size coupled to it's fairly short range (for its size) is acceptable/desirable.  The A300-600 and A310 will be a bit more popular than the current models and the A320 and A330/340 series will sell as well as anything else on the market, easily.
