Does anyone else out there bemaon the poor quality of the major aircraft manufacturers' websites?

I have just visited www.airbus.com - and found it to be somewhat below par from that which I would expect of a site representing a "techno driven" industry. It was visually unexciting, with irritatingly small fonts, cluttered menus and fairly poor graphics of the product. Boeing's effort is little better, if at all. Blink, and you might miss the button representing "commercial aircraft".

Not that I was expecting secure online 777 ordering via credit card (with gift wrapping options)  Wink/being sarcastic but clearly neither of these two big players feel that big time investment in website development particularly pays off!

I think that's an unfair assessment of their webpages. The Boeing webpage has all the fancy things you'd expect, flash, etc. It has useful information about all of it's business units. It's a 50 billion dollar revenue company, the website is decently organized for all the information that is required to be there. I'm not sure what you are expecting. I wouldn't have designed it that way myself, but can't expect the style to please everyone. Then there are all the internal webpages that the public never sees, Boeing puts plenty of money into webpages.

Thermodynamics and english units don't mix...
