You know how Boeing has prices for their aircraft on their website: does Airbus have that on their website. I've been looking for along time and still can't find them. If you know where to find prices for Airbuses please tell me.

Thanks

Airbus will not disclose their prices, for some reason. But, if you really want some Airbus prices, get the Vital Guide to Commercial Aircraft and Airliners. It hass all the Airbus prices up to 1994. It's kind of an old book, but informative! It goes all the way up to the A343.
Catch ya later!

Bear in mind though, there's a huge difference between the prices quoted on web sites and what airlines actually pay!

Well, if I recall, the book states that a new 737-400 cost 26 million dollars, and I think the price on the website now is about 50 million, I'll have to go check it out. I imagine prices have changes a bit.

Don't Airbus prices change depending on the size of the EU subsidy? ......or so says Boeing.

The main problem with working out Airbus prices is that Airbus does not exist as a company. It is merely the name by which various European companies market their jointly produced aircraft (BAE Systems, Aerospatiale, Daimler-Benz Aerospace, CASA etc)

This means when airlines pay money for an aircraft, the money goes to the individual companies in proportion to their share on the aircraft.

The only profit/loss/income figures are posted individually by each company, it is impossible to work out how much is paid for an individual aircraft from these figures because of this. It is also impossible to work out Airbus' finances since it does not publish accounts.

There are moves to establish Airbus into an SCE (Single Corporate Entity) to enable it to operate as a normal company, but of course for such an international company there are problems such as how will it maintain it's International status if based in one country - and which contry should it be. With Airbus, questions like this are never simple. It is a much more complex organisation than Boeing, becoming an SCE should make it more efficient - watch out Boeing!!!!

However, Airbus can now sell planes at a loss because it does not have shareholders to answer to like Boeing. It is simply striving to gain market share on Boeing, which until recently dominated the market. This is reasonable, Airbus is only trying to penetrate new markets with low prices, once it has gained significant market share that it is happy with in markets like the USA, they will price their products at a fairer level. Boeing did have an unfair stranglehold on the US domestic market, the only way Airbus could get the US airlines to order Airbus rather than stick to their trusted Boeing/MDs was price.

Once Airbus is an SCE, they may go public, and so are likely to have to answer to shareholders in the future too!

I hope I explained myself OK. Let me know if you don't understand.

And people, please, stop bickering with these Boeing/Airbus wars, it's like kids in the playground, we're above that

James

There is no room for me against the big boys? What is wrong with curiosity. I did not want to buy a commercial airplane. What is wrong with wanting to know about how much a plane costs. If I can't ask a simple question without getting a rude and UNpolite reply from you, I think I speak for everyone else when I say we dont need a person like you on this website.

Best regards, "the wannabe player"

Swissair says an A 320 costs about 55 Million Dollars. They publish the prices they paid in a annualy report.
