Do you realize that the A350-900 is going to be more efficient than the B777-200ER?

Seb.
I believe A350 competes with B787, and B777 competes with A340 family

Maybe A350 spec is not attractive enough to airlines? But I don't think it's a big problem for A350. The fact that it is a derivative of A330 doesn't mean airbus cannot win more orders. In my opinion, as long as Airbus can offer prices, and stuffs that airlines see they can make money with A350, air...

You don't think Boeing would offer a bigger discount to a Boeing-loyal customer??? (Continental, Delta, American) :wink: How can boeing can offer discounts as oftern as airbus when their manufacturing is not efficient ?

From what I read B777 seems to be superior than a340 except the price and ETOPS. Emirates loves to have B777 but since the price is too high to make profit so they rather lease them. Although a340 is not really good compared to b777 but airbus can offer very competitive price to airlines so airlines...

A350 Possible orders: ILFC, Air Canada (Although it has ordered B787, I think it's not enough for AC), Aer Lingus, Finnair, Iberia, LOT Polish Airlines AC would not go for the A350 after ordering the 787. To do so would be one of the stupidest buisness moves made in aviation history. Answer me this...

I actually beleive that Airbus may have a point. How can AI Board choose what´s best if Airbus was not able to present the A350 up against the B787. It may seem that this may be a logical move, as corruption may be involved. Lets not forget that its the Goverments money being spent here and not a p...

Anyone knows why Boeings have to have a good-looking exterior?
Who cares? as long as the planes performs well and make operators happy, why bother to put effort in making the planes look attractive?
