The 787 Vs The A380

Tue Oct 10, 2006 6:22 am

Hi, im a new member on Airliner.net.
I am currenlty in 6th form, and i am undertaking a study of the 787.
I would like to know your thoughts on the following questions, so i can undertake an online poll:
1.Who do you think will win the aviation war? The 787 or the A380?
2.Do you think the 787 programme will be a sucess?
3.Do you prefer the 787 concept of direct travel avoiding airport hubs?
4. Do you prefer travelling on larger jets that offer more comfort, such as the A380 or do you prefer smaller jets, such as the 787?

I would be grateful for your thoughts
Thanks!

First of all welcome to a.net! Second of all these answers are strictly my opinion and personal thoughts.

1. The 787 will win over the A380 hands down.
2. It's already a success granted they don't have any delays.
3. That's a hard question because I love big airports and the hustle and bustle of the large hub airports but I love the convenience of the point to point operations. But if I had to pick one over the other I would chose point to point
4. I would prefer the smaller 787. Breathing the same air as 500 other people is not my idea of fun.


Good luck with the online survey.

787

2.Do you think the 787 programme will be a sucess?

Absolutley. it already is and has experienced it.

3.Do you prefer the 787 concept of direct travel avoiding airport hubs?

Yes. No one should have to switch planes 4 time to get to a destination.

4. Do you prefer travelling on larger jets that offer more comfort, such as the A380 or do you prefer smaller jets, such as the 787?

I would perfer larger jets, But the 787 style is unparalleled.



Good luck!

787 far more practical.

BIG TIME, most likely 500 orders before the first flight

Bad question for guys like me, i took a flight through KTN, SIT, and JNU just to get to ANC from SEA

787 size and cabin style looks far more inviting than 500 people cramed around me

You can't really compare those two aircraft and start a battle between them. They cover two different parts of the market
