Latecoere, a French aviation pioneer based in Toulouse, is to provide the 7E7 passenger doors.

Both Airbus & Boeing select the best providers based on technical expertise, costs (incl.subsidies..), quality and reliability.



Aircraft are a bunch of US, European and Asian components, combined by OEM Brands in the best possible way.

A.net like AvsB emotions don't play a role. Politicians & nationalist hardliners might think so, IMO developments point the other way.


.. and on a related subject, look at this tail, bad news for sharks I guess..

Airbus and Latecoere are 2 different companies. Latecoere also provides doors for Embraer planes.

Boeing also selected units of France's Snecma SA & Zodiac SA for the 7E7

The contracts illustrate how globalized the commercial aviation industry has become, even as the U.S. and the European Union square off in the World Trade Organization over alleged subsidies to Boeing and European rival Airbus. Cross-border contracts blur traditional national allegiances, but also mean that if the WTO fight escalates, it could have serious repercussions for the whole industry.

Why is this newsworthy? It's just a geographical coincidence.

A Seattle-based company provides the in-flight internet service marketed by Airbus. Big deal.

The big deal is that these global efforts show how idiotic the usual A vs. B threads on this site are. Aircraft construction has been a global operation for many years.

I can get nationalistic from time to time myself, but the best hope for a peaceful world is unrestricted trade. The aircraft industry is just more visible than most because of the costs and number of companies involved.

I agree with you, Flyabunch. The globalized nature of modern aircraft construction makes these A vs. B fights seem silly as hell, to say the least. Hell, if what I've been reading is correct, the A380 will have more US made content than the 7e7!  Wow!

cheers, Ralph

Global economics at work...it does show how irrelevant the A vs. B rants are on this board. As usual, we can count on a Solnabo post to illustrate one of those pointless, irrelevant remarks for us. I am sure it was just a demo for the discussion's sake, and not his actual thoughts on the matter.

the US vs Euro arguments are sometimes bordering on the ridiculous these days, eg that crazy attempt by some in Congress to make the Pentagon only purchase systems with x% US content or those made on US machine tools etc. While they are at it, maybe they should ban French CATIA design systems too along with French fries! Oops, that means Boeing would have to go back to using paper drawings on the 7E7, along with almost every other major US aerospace manufacturer using CAD systems. I mean couldn't B ask another WA state company known for its software to develop a CAD system for them??? (now that would be really scary!)

From the same site as the orginal pic...

http://www.speednews.com/lists/7E7_Suppliers.html


Looking at the similar page for the A380 I see the following electrical items:

General Cabin Lighting w/ Moodlighting Options
Spotlights
Cargo Compartment Lighting
Emergency Power Supply Units
Autonomous Standby Power Supply Units
Door Emergency Power Supply
Footwarmers

from Diehl Luftfahrt Elektronik (DLE)

What on earth is a foot warmer? I can't see it being something for passenger comfort!
