Why it takes so long for Boeing to launch B747AV

I think unlike Baby Airbus who received launch aid from governments, Boeing just wants to make sure the program B747AV is profitable. If the US had supported Boeing with launch aid like the European governments do, B747AV would have taken off long time ago.

Imagine they abandone the A350 and launch a Sonic Cruiser, european style, or, the revamped Concorde.
Major panic in Seatlle.
Abandon A350? A Euro style Concorde ? You mean the one the only few can fly? This is Euro metality :D

Just do without them

I think Boeing should be outsourcing machinist jobs to Russia, China or India. They don't have to worry about Union, labor cost is lower, and the host countries would buy more Boeing planes.

Greetz,

Was the Caravell a piece of Euro scrap? Not in service for a few years weren't they? And how many Concord were in service? Marvel or scrap?

Next will be a Concorde-made-by-Boeing, probably called Real Sonic Cruiser. Problem is that they cannot find anough plaster to copy a Concorde.

Hard times for Airbus, I would assume.

Just borrow money from UK,France and pay for the late penalty. Good luck Ai...

But if Boeing 787 is successfull, especially if Boeing succeeds in building the whole fuselage with carbon fibre and the carbon fiber is proven as safe as conventional metal alloy then Airbus is in deep trouble. Boeing can apply th...

I wonder if A350 offer larger windows, and higher humidity in passenger cabin as B787 does. Assume A350 is as economical as B787, but it doens't provide comfort as B787 does, is it a big disadvatange?
