I guess Mr. Airbus and TBU*** used to be Airbus employees just getting laid off recently. I completely syphathized with their hatred towards B787.

Boeing works with customers on BWB

According to this article Boeing seems to be ready for BWB design. They want to try it out with freighter companies. I don't know how serious they are with this project. Anyone knows? http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2007/05/21/213997/boeing-works-with-airlines-on-commercial-blended-wing-body.html

I think that there are fewer orders for the 737 because Airlines sense the introduction of the 737 replacement. If Boeing doesn't announce anything about the 737 replacement by the Paris Airshow then 737 orders should pick up. They can always transfer the orders to the new AC. This is just speculat...

From reading this, it seems the jumbo jets that China wants to build will be for domestic use only. Airbus will have to take this into account regarding to A380 sales. If China builds its own jumbo jets for domestic use in the next 10 years they will not buy many A380's. I don't think China intends...

Sorry 797 you are quite wrong! One A380 will do the work of two 787, and maybe even slightly faster. It can cruise at 0.86 against its guaranteed 0.85. Cheers Achace As a passenger do I care A380 do twice the work of B787? Sure It can cruise a little faster, saving me some time, but what about the ...

Right, Boeing did it 40 years ago with the 747, but what is new about the A380 is not its size but the potential of doing what the 747 did, and reduce the cost of travel like the 747.[/quote]

If B787 delivers Boeing's promise what do we benefit from A380? Extra hours of flying? :wink:

. The Chinese government might force domestic airlines to buy Chinese made airplanes. But these airplanes won't be comparable to A or B for quite awhile. IMHO anyways. :D This is one of the reasons for which I don't like to see China become a third player. It will cause larger trade gap between US ...
