We all know about the Concorde going bye bye, But why didn't Microsoft put an Airbus on FS2002, I am sick of flying Lears, and Boeings, Give us an Airbus where we can actually use the joystick and make us believe we are actually in an Airbus, What do you think guys??? I know there are the downloadable Airbuses, but I want an Airbus from MS already on there.

I know what you mean. Afterall, the Concorde was a European built aircraft, so there is all reason to put an Airbus in there. I don't think it has to do with being in WA. I know what you mean with the joystick too. Of course, I still like FS2k2. By the name of JetBlue, it looks like you would really like an airbus being that they are mostly airbus.

Hey! Because Boeing is American and so is 'Microsoft' they see Airbus as there arch-rivals obviously! I think it sucks too that they have no Airbuses, they beat Boeing by far.....Bring on the A330-200

Boeing and the Concorde aren't/weren't in direct competition, where Airbus and Boeing are. If Microsoft said they wanted to put an Airbus in FS, Boeing would probably destroy the contract with MS, thus saying that they can't put the 737,777,747 in the game. Probably in the contract saying that MS can't put Airbus AC in.

Hey, just download an Airbus panel, and Airbus aircraft and some airbus soundfiles. Without any doubt, they're better than the standard aircraft included in MS Flight simulator. It has always been this way...

I bet if Airbus paid MS more money, that they would ditch Boeing. I really don't like how Boeing is trying to monopolize not only the market, but also trying to monopolize COMPUTER GAMES. There are people in Europe who play this game. As with what DAVID VENZ of Airbus Industrie says. "The 747 is OLDER than Airbus Industrie. It's time for a new airplane, with state of the art technology built from the wheels up, and that is what is going to happen with the A3XX (A380)."

Was that a joke, or are you really serious? Airbus is a European company, not American. Boeing is American, and so is Microsoft, get the picture?

LOL, thanks for that laugh.

That statement is laughed at by many. The 747 may be an old design, but a lot of the 747s flying today are not old planes. State of the are technology from the wheels up? Uhhh, duh, look at the 747-400 and the 777.
You seem to be dreaming here.
Anyway, the default MS aircraft are usually crap compared to the ones you can get from the web, so why do you care so much?

Errr quit your whining and download it from FS.com, their better looking, feature real airlines, and in some cases fly better.
People are saying its the American thing that it's all Boeing, lets not kid our selfs Boeing just has more aircraft out in the field its like me complaining that Cessnas, they only do that because they pay them, it should be all Pipers. Wrong Cessnas are more prevalent and will probally always will be, personally I prefer Pipers, but most people will get their flight training in a Cessna, its the same thing with the Boeings.

It's a pity, because the Airbuses have more advanced systems to simulate, in particular the flight envelope protection system and auto trim - which noone has been able to effectively replicate in FSIM. I don't want to start an Airbus/Boeing war, but the automatic systems would be interesting - especially for people first getting used to FS flying.
But, generally speaking the MSFS flight models for the airliners are quite pathetic. Absolute crap for the engines - the spool speeds are back to front (should be very slow initially, then fast once inertia is overcome) and the thrust output at low N1s is far too low - taxi in a real jet is conducted at near idle - ie 23 odd N1.
