Boeing/Airbus Vs. Conservative/Liberal

So, along with my recent "Why so many liberals an A.net?" and the "A.net Political Survey," I thought that there might be a correlation between liberal/conservative and Boeing/Airbus.

So, without stating opinions on why Boeing is better than Airbus or vice versa, I would just like to see who considers themselves liberal/conservative and which aircraft maker they prefer if any.

Thanks

I lean to the left (liberal) on most issues, and prefer Boeing aircraft.

He's a young conservative, who can't stand that he's a minority in the world, so is trying to lash out and find arguemets against the world any way he can.

I'm a "Euro-conservative" and I prefer both. I don't really care if I'm flying on an Airbus or a Boeing. Both aircraft makers make good planes.

Actually, I have a hypothesis that I want to test. Research is a wonderful thing. We can learn things that way. If someone wants to point out the virtues of conservatism/liberalism or Boeing aircraft/Airbus aircraft, they should go to a different thread.

And young liberals don't do the same, if not more, Falcon?

If you say no, then I'd say you've never been to college.

I'm a European who lives/lived in Germany and England, New York and Hongkong, do definitely NOT fit in your ridiculous conservative/liberal scheme, and I love to fly aircraft that are in good condition and do give me some legroom since I'm 6'3''.

...and as a bonus I prefer to have people sitting next to me on my numerous flights, that use their brains before opening their mouth...meaning I'd hate to have a "Boeing fan" next to me on an Airbus and I'd hate to have an "Airbus fan" next to me on a Boeing aircraft.

And I can't fight the feeling that is just another way of starting a let's-all-get-together-and-throw-some-shit-to-the-fan-thread, using the most hate-filled and useless words that were ever used on a.net!

Very ignorant attitude for someone who wants to be a commercial pilot, my friend.

What happens if you succeed, and after the regionals, you get a job offer to fly an A320 for United?

Gonna turn that down?  Yeah sure

Unfortunately most of them don't even understand what conservative means. Maybe if they managed to form their own opinions instead of being force-fed by Karl Rove and his ilk they could string two cogent words together.

Still, it's good fodder for shooting down in flames. BravoCheney rides again and all that...in fact of all the right wing blowhards who spew on here (except ANCflyer who does at least make sense most of the time) not one is even remotely a genuine conservative.

I can tell you as a professional scientist that asking questions of people on a.net couldn’t possibly enable you to test a hypothesis. It’s pretty obvious that you don’t know the first thing about the foundational elements of the scientific method or statistical analysis if you think that you can.

If you’re legitimately interested in applying quantitative analysis to this question, which I frankly suspect that you are not, you need to go hit the books and enlighten yourself first.

You just proof that "very conservative" persons are childish , and you are not a real aviation enthusiast if you don't want to fly as many different aircraft as possible.

Erm, I've never been to US college, but since in your world liberals are all socialists, to use one of the friendlier words I've read on this forum, I find it rather funny that you believe socialists try to find arguments against "the world"...wouldn't it be the other way round?

Research is a great thing indeed. But if you truly want to find a correlation between political leanings and aircraft manufacturer it is a bit more complex than posting it on an internet forum and seeing who bites. Well it will be interesting to see the results, we won't really learn much from it which we can relate to the real world. If the intent of this thread is a flamebait, then I suggest you find something more useful to do with your time than egging on people on an internet forum.

As for me, I'm centre left and like both Airbus and Boeing equally.

Look, I'm sorry I upset so many people with this thread. I simply wanted a survery of A.netters and not the whole world.

In America, it's fairly well know that a driver of a Ford pickup truck is probably a conservative and the driver of a Volvo is probably a liberal. I thought that conservative Americans would be more likely to vote for the home team while liberal would prefer the imports. The thread turned to crap really quick and I regret ever putting it up. I can't change anyone's mind who knows my inentions were to piss people off and start a fight, but I want this thing to be deleted.

Libertarian who votes mostly with the GOP. I have no preference on aircraft. I think both Boeing and Airbus are great companies and each makes the other better by pushing them to perform. Without the other each company would prefer to rest on its laurals rather than spend the money on R&D that allows them to progressively leapfrog each other.

Without a doubt the 747 was the Queen of the Skies for 30 years. Now with the A380 AB has raised the bar. I can't wait to see how Boeing will respond.
