Regarding the JA37 Viggen
In the start you see the road aibases. A way to incease the number of war airbases.
When will 330s start be converted to frighters? 5 years from now?Jump to post

So; The conclusion is that it is easier to move to Biofuels on cars first then the airindustry? What will happen if the airindustry gets so bad <acronym title="Philippine Airlines">PR</acronym> so it is forced to move? I mean; Please fly to Caribean, but also consider that some people looses their i...Jump to post
So why dont they move the taxes from the flight tickets to the fuels then? Actions is needed and Bio jet fuels can actually be nice for the local farmers . Now the politicians woke up!Jump to post

Now it comes to Europe as well:
EU plans air passenger data exchange system
I beleive it was just a question of time.
Special with the latest security matters there will be a number of destinations that is more efficient (in time door to door) using trains. With the new brigde Germany Denmark is ready Scandinavia will be directly connected to the continent as well. We can already choose train instead of air on holi...Jump to post
The gasoline is for example much more expensives in Europe then in US. Is it the the same regarding jet fuels?Jump to post

Even the A380 was shared with other actors like the SAAB and Volvo and probaby. Do anyone know what procentage of the A380 that was shared and how much is likeley to be shared of the new 320?Jump to post

What is a change of patterns is that they start to attack "smaller" airports. I have got a feeling that so far the bigger has been the main goal for the terrorists.
Correct me if I am wrong
I believe that we have a big problem here, but I also believe that the western countries will solve it by using bio energy pretty soon and other energy sources. The main reason is that we get the current energy from countries like Iraq or Iran and we do not really want this to proceed. I changed my ...Jump to post
I like to add a swedish one:

To be honest, I do not really care from where for example Sweden buys its equipment as long as we get it for the best price etc... But sometimes it suprises me that for example the congress in US tells that we will never buy foreign products and then we see suprises in for example A.net when our par...Jump to post
Compared to the next gen F16, current Eurofighter etc in what level will the Gripen be?Jump to post
What is the guess for sales of A330 for the whole year?
Considering that the A340 sells a bit as well, for how long is the slots of construction booked?
Both USA and Europe makes airplanes for transport and attack purpose. But it seams that on this forum and in real life that US expects Europe to buy its hardware, and if it does not it is because of national protective actions from for example Airbus. On the other hand the US does not consider that ...Jump to post
Albatros D.III (Red Baron etc)
An upgrade of the Gripen is on the way:
Russia sees this as a way to get more power in the regsion. This is pretty obvious. But it might take time while they also need to be nice special with their biggest customer of Oil and Gas EU. Russia started the WWII together with Germany by attacking Finland, Baltic states and Poland. They got on ...Jump to post
Congratulations for Boeing!!!!Jump to post
From a Swedish point of view Volvo and SAAB asked the Swedish government for the loans not Airbus.
Boeing did the same with its Japanese partners and the Japanese government.
As I remember it was an order and made Airbus get more orders then Boeing that year. The fact that they moves the A320 to China for me indicates 1. It will be built for a long period even after the start of the A320 replacement 2. we get closer to a A320 replacement 3. China will soon be the 3rd sup...Jump to post
So the next generation might go from 50% to 70% of new more efficient materials. Then to 100% or close.
When we sit here in 2020 and read our posts will we see the A380 with 30% non metal materials and the B787 and A350 as only a start?
Correct me if I am wrong but I understand that the A350 has a round 50% non metal materials compared to A380 30%. The engines of the B7478 is more efficient compared to the A380 in the current version. The engines of the A350 probably be a little bit more efficient compared to the curent B787 and B7...Jump to post
I hope you did not get bored on the way
First we have for example the Chinese national bank that has been pushing down its value of its curency for a long time. Therefore it sits on a lot of USD assets that has been decreaseing in value the last few years (Y2000 was the opposite when the USD was stronger then the Euro). Now they want to c...Jump to post
Well, Europe sells more abroad then its imports. Deficits of USD has been going on for a long time. You cannot really compare the situation. USD exchange rate is in the hands of China, other Asian countries and Oil producing countries that now not send the USD back to finance the US government. Fran...Jump to post
A question; In most A.net forums the B787 is described to become 787-3, 787-8, 787-9 and now 787-10 and 787-11. Airbus did this with A300, A330, A340 until A340-600 with success but the -600 proved to not a great success. What makes it posible for Boeing to make one frame fits for all markets? I do ...Jump to post
How many frames will Aurbus want to sell before they start to consider A380-900? It looks like the figures (CASM etc) is better or at least in line with promissed in order to make the original customers and new customers order it now when Airbus can show real figures after the testing.. What will th...Jump to post
Great news for Airbus and EADS. Business as usual is best for all parties. I consider that a normal company would never succeded to become an Airbus while the US companies had all the support (indirect from the US military) but now it is time to move on. I would not be suprised if China do an Airbus...Jump to post
When you sell something you have a: A cost of proposal (one time) B startup cost for the production of the order (one time) C cost for contious production (per item) Ina huge order A and B is the same or close the same as for an small order. A smart sales team uses this for optimize profit and help ...Jump to post
I believe that Airbus palyed a very interesting game by putting the A350 between the B787 and the B777. This created a situation that was not expected by the Boeing team. This means that if Boeing comes with an Y3 around 2020 what makes it impossible for Airbus to make an A350 HGW(?). That should cr...Jump to post
I consider that what we see is normal product management: When a product is on the way you give discounts in order to secure the launch of the product. The B787 had low prices for the first orders for example to Japanese carriers and now we see something similiar with Airbus. Airbus need to get enou...Jump to post
The most dangerous for an organisation is success. Airbus had a lot of success 1990 to 2005 and I consider that they came to a position where all problems was hidden away. All people including management want to show the success and avoids deal with problems. This was also the case with Boeing a few...Jump to post
This is my first time I write in this forum even if I have been reading it for a long time. I consider that the biggest challange is the USD - Euro exchange rate.
