Man, you guys all need a big tablespoon of shut-up.
Here's why, for those of you who will immediately ask whether I have a press release to verify my sentences (honestly, some of you would ask for proof that Embraer plans to make a 190, sheesh).
"Every time Airbus does or achieve something, the American rival always discredit them..."
What a ridiculous statement! Boeing is in the process of designing a plane that will reduce fuel consumption by as much as 20%!!! (Would you like a press release for that too? Look it up your own dang self!) THINK of the environmental benefit we will enjoy! The exhaust emissions are promised to be at all time record lows, as well. Think of the great news this is for the environment! And the interior, so revolutionary.
Yet, to put it as the poster on this forum did, "Airbus on 7E7 launch: 'No response is needed.'" Wow, environmental priorities are clearly not an issue for Airbus. Neither, apparently, are revolutionary designs, involving composites, and other high-tech advancements. Let's just stick with a big, old fashioned, super huge jumbo.
While I agree that the shifting of Boeing's focus is totally ridiculous, I refuse to allow you all to pounce on Boeing as an unloved underdog or something. Let's not forget that the 777 is the fastest-selling airliner of ALL
TIME, making the A340 look like an inferior product.
They're both great manufacturers of airliners. CAN
'T YOU PEOPLE just accept that? They're both FINE. Boeing will surely pull ahead in sales in the future. And then, after that, Airbus will regain the lead. Then, later down the road, Airbus will sell more airplanes again.
'S CALLED COMPETITION, though I suppose you in the hoity-toity EU (to which, alas, my favorite of all nations, Italia belongs) would not be familiar with competition, as most industries are heavily government controlled. NO ONE HERE would argue that Airbus has heavily been subsidized in the past. They're moving toward decent business practices, but books have been written on the secrecy of Airbus. When our government contributes to the aviation industry, at least it is through the purchase of our aviation products!
Seriously, folks. Airbus makes good planes.
Seriously, folks. Boeing makes good planes.
WHO CARES who sells more? Competition makes both strive to improve and produce better products. The A320 wouldn't exist without the prior existence of the 737. Similarly, I choose to believe, the DC-9 wouldn't exist without the prior existence of the Caravelle and also the BAC-111 in the market.
Jobs for everyone in all nations, and a Merry Christmas to all!
