Lately so many people have said so many bad things about Airbus lately, i decied it is time to say some good things. Anybody who likes airbus, say something good about them here. Anything really, just some of those good little things that are classic airbus style. Really, it has a bit of a pedegree airbus. Daimler benz aerospace, for those of you who don't know, is the Parent company of Mercedes-Benz.

So, if you support Airbus, stand up and be counted.!!!!

They have forced Boeing to become leaner, meaner and more innovative to compete. Thats a good word for Airbus is'nt it?

Let me explain. The big company is Chrysler-Daimler.

That company owns Chrysler, Dodge and Daimler-Benz.
Daimler Benz owns mercedes, and Daimler-Benz aerospace which basically is Duestche Airbus.

Make sence?

I don't believe that anyone has ever needed to ask for support for Boeing!

There isn't a current commercial airliner as beautiful and elegant as the A340. There, I said it.

I don't believe it was many days ago that cx747 was saying the same thing about support for Boeing that Luke now said about support for Airbus. Face it, the ranks are pretty even.

All airlines have needed support from their airliner manufacturer at one time or another whether Boeing or Airbus. Im sure many airlines needed some Boeing support when they found wrenches in the tails of their planes.

ERAU, I'm not sure you got Tad's point (maybe I'm not either). I believe Tad is referring not to support the manufacturer gives an airline, but the estimated 6 (six) billion dollars (US) capital that had been injected into Airbus Industrie by the mid eighties. Airbus, I am still convinced, is a massive European public works project which will not be allowed to fail, as was the case for years with slow sales and minimal product offerings. That is not to say I think Airbus products aren't good, they are. I think both manufacturers make great products. If you have read my postings earlier which continue to focus on the business case, you will see I don't think the playing field is even between Boeing and Airbus and that is too bad. As long as Airbus continues to have the financial backing of the 4 primary governments, and as long as they will continue to not have the truly report their financial situation (unlike Boeing), I think unfairness will continue to exist. Some Airbus advocates have said Boeing receives indirect subsidies through NASA research etc., but that information is available not only to Airbus, but to us here on the web. Anyway, I'm not trying to be partisan as I hope it is clear I love airliners of all makes. I do appreciate the names on this forum who are European and who support Airbus. They seem like good guys.

I love Airbus too, I got a lot of cool stuff from Airbus Industrie from my friend's dad, works at Airbus Training Facility in Miami. One day I'm going to get some simulator time in an Airbus.

They broke new ground with the A320 becoming the first mass-produse airliner to emerge and becoming a very safe way of flying.

I like both Boeing and Airbus equaly (heck, i like the Russian's planes too now with the western helping and sopporting Russia's aviation giant) Same with McDonnell Douglas, only wish they were still around indepedently.

Without Airbus, there will be no competion (for people liking just Boeing)

Long live the Airbus Industrie!!!
(thanks in part for Eastern making way for the North America airlines flying Airbus too)

I support Airbus Industrie! I think they are a great company and their aircraft are just as good as Boeing's if not better. They have been fairly successful in the past few years and I hope to see them do so in the future!

Mercedes now owned by Dodge? L-1888, mercy me, I laughed so hard I cried. Mercedes-Benz bought Chrysler Corp. Not only do they own Chrysler, they own Dodge too. ;)

I used to believe that Boeing was a shining example of the best any industry had to offer its market. Long ago that was probably the case. I never like Mcdonnell-Douglas after the DC-10 flaws, and I didn't think highly of any plane maker which called its products "buses". However, this 737 rudder matter and Boeings limp evasive response to this problem has left me with a bitter taste in my mouth and has soured me on Boeing for a long time. As far as I'm concerned, an Airbus is no worse than any Boeing. They are all dreary planes coming out of dreary factories. You know what I miss about spotting at the airport? The noise. Watching a plane like 727 or a DC-8 take-off was a sensory experience. You saw it, but you heard its roar too, you saw the smoke, you smelled the jet-A, and you felt the vibration in your bones. Sometimes frightening. Almost awe-inspiring. It stirred the soul. These days, I go to the airport once in a while, I see an A-320 or a 757 take off, and nothing roars, nothing smokes, nothing smells, and nothing vibrates. My soul is not stirred. I'm not awed. I'm left with an empty feeling, a longing to experience what I used to experience in the older days and I am discarded unsatisfied. All I have experienced is a visual illusion. And within a few seconds, that too is gone, disappearing, as it does, into the sky. Who makes better planes? Who cares anymore.

With several large governments behind it, Airbus needs little support from anyone on this forum!!

Well its great to here that we are not all 'Airbus haters'.

I like the roar of stage 2 aircraft too. It really was a stupid and very unfair move for the implementation of stage 3. The poeple who live below will still complain. The problem will not be solved. And some reaserch has suggested, that we can burn fuel more efficiently at higher temperature. But, higher temperatures mean more noise. So, you would have a cleaner, but noiser engine. This is because the temperature difference between the jet exhaused and the ambiant air temperature is much greater. Surely, with depleating oil reserves, and an greenhouse emissions causing problems, noise is a secondary factor.

I think though, Airbus has done a great job, and its great to here others agree with me. Remember the reaction everybody had when Eastern Airlines introduced the A300. Shock horror!!!!! How dare they. They were 'dancing with the devil' so to speak. While A340s land in the US everyday, nobody in the US has any. I think if Pan Am were still about(the original) they would have bought it big time.
