Well, I think the French are right , Airbus specification/performance, is done solenely by Aerospatiale, the french engineering company who designed Concord perf/specs/systems, then the first Airbus , and then...
Now, partners have to turn the specifications (paperware) into hardware, this enables the French to have some dilution on human error , and of course to blame others

Boeing because....

the bus is french. so no thanks.

Age 17? For one so young to display such xenophobia speaks volumes about the environment you are being reared in. I thought this thread was to discuss the relative merits of a/c NOT to display ignorant prejudices.

Will be nice when the schools/universities/reformatories go back.

Happy adulthood Leo, when you reach it.

With hundreds of workers poised to loose their jobs, EADS to return 50% of their capital (1.7 BILLION Euro's) in compensation for the fiasco of the A400M if it fails , YES I guess YOU WILL be looking for someone to blame.

The someone to blame was a kind a humour, and was never intended to be serious.
Building aircraft is not a walk in a park, it is paved with chalenges, as far as I can remember Airbus never blamed its partners, today the world economical crise overloads any company, Airbus and Boeing inclusive, the know how has nothing to do with this.
As far as I am concerned, I flew A330, and B777, and on a serious note I do prefer Boeing, more practical, more pilot oriented, with a technology that serves its purpose.
BTW I am not French, and this does not matter at all.

Dear Mr Moderator, can we do something about Mr B-HKD, I enjoyed reading Bus Vs Boeing "comparison" till such an unimportant, inappropriate comment brought about by Mr. B-HKD.


Indeed. Gratuitously offensive material is not part and parcel of Tech Log.

No worries then, so let us continue the discussion, I am looking forward to see more "comparisons " between Airbus and Boeing.

I'll just sit here smug and happy in my E-jet, and laugh at both of the big boys.
Me too

Just curious... is there some sort of a G/S mini function on the Bravo planes?

Anyway, if flying still is a way of making a structure big enough to contain boxes and accommodate some humans inside it, beat the earth's gravity through the air flow "sucking" phenomena provided by Mr. Bernoulli's principles, how it's done has changed radically throughout this past century: from the Wright bros simple machine with just a piece of string as their first and only flight instrument through the Alpha aeroplanos. Sorry, but IMHO, A is leading technology wise.

From a Darwinian perspective, A and B evolutive ramifications are very much like the Humans and the Chimps, both Primates but with completely different technologies.
