Mr. Baseler yesterday in Frankfurt...

"U.S. planemaker Boeing does not expect to make order gains for its aircraft as a direct result of delays to the A380 superjumbo being built by European rival Airbus, a Boeing official said on Monday.


Boeing's marketing vice president, Randy Baseler, told journalists in Frankfurt that he expected Airbus, a unit of aerospace firm EADS, to meet its commitments to customers for the world's biggest passenger plane."

That is eaxctly what a professional company would say. Airbus would have done the same. But we all know that Airbus inconsistencies and waffling of delivery dates does hurt sales. Look at Aeroflot decision to buy from both. A lot of that decision was due to availability and slots.

What comes around goes around... Boeing has some challenging projects ahead and they could very well be in the same predictament.


Cheers



Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

No, you all think you know.

To gain an order that was to go to Airbus would be nice PR. Credit must be given to Mr. Baseler here for not talking out of his ass.

Nothing is firm. SU's order could still go to Boeing or Airbus. Altough the former seems to take the lead.

Don't assume stuff is obvious, many people can come to different conclusions using the same data. A380 is still in its infancy, only those carriers that forecast need have placed orders early, is it possible everyone else is waiting for it to perform first? Yes, and being delayed will postpone any of those future sales considerably. I do not think the sales numbers speak for themselves - this is a superjumbo jet. Why expect it to ever sell in droves in the near term?



The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

I'm sure that eventually both the A380 and the 748 will sell well and be a success, we are talking of the big league planes here and the sale of this birds is always slow, in about 10 years from now the A380 will be a common sight in airports around the world together with the 748. Wait and see.

just my 2 cents

Baseler could just as well have said that he expects the sales boost to be an indirect result of the WhaleJet fiasco. He was wisely more diplomatic than that.
