Re: What made Airbus make the a300 as a twinjet, and why couldnt McDonnell Douglas do the same with the DC-10?

The A300 may have outsold the DC-10, but it’s important to keep in mind that the DC-10 effectively shared the Trijet market and it was outsold by the DC-10 and L-1011 combined, Red herrings! You might just as well argue that the A300 had fewer sales because it shared the twinjet market with... let'...

Re: What made Airbus make the a300 as a twinjet, and why couldnt McDonnell Douglas do the same with the DC-10?

That's correct. But part of the story is that the A300 was in fact initially designed to be a plane with capabilities - payload and range - similar to the tri-jets. 300 was chosen for its name because it was designed for 300 passengers. And then it should use the substantially more powerful RR RB-2...

A300 went ahead because their governments wanted to be in the airliner business. There's no way MD or any for-profit entity would have invested in A300 as it was at launch time. It did not have enough payload/range to be useful except for short hops. Short hops? I think you have just described a va...
