Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

I do feel these crashes could have been avoided if Boeing did things differently. I'm pretty sure that's a unanimous opinion. Even Boeing admits it made mistakes and has issued an apology and is in the process of producing a fix, so anyone who says otherwise is mistaken. It's a nice list, but I don...

Re: A380 was success for Airbus, says new CEO

In fact many people might argue that it is the *duty* of a company's representative to big up their products and try to make them sound as successful as possible, even when the truth lies elsewhere. You won't hear the CEO of Airbus claim the A380 is 'a failure' anymore than you'd hear the CEO of Bo...

Re: Reuters : Airbus to counter the "NMA"by the existing 330neo and the A21N

The money to pay for the MAX screw up has to come from somewhere, and launching an expensive clean sheet targeted at a challenging area of the market is not likely to happen in the near term, IMHO. If, as per A.Net wisdom, the USA Congress is in Boeing's pocket, they could use the MAX issue to make...

But would Airbus have developed something else if they had decided not to launch the A380? Heard about a possible A30X at that time... would have been a far cheaper snafu IMO. A quick Google suggests A30X was more of a 2010 era idea, A3XX dates back to the 90s if not earlier. Strategically, at the ...

I've seen this on here before, but did Boeing really screw up on the MAX because of time?
