there is no point in buying one for the US carriers. 747 can go to every airport and not need a run way with special modifications.

Would it better to buy domestic to help the economy. The last thing we want is to buy European pile of junk where as we have superb Boeing product.

to be fair, Japanese engineering/components also distribute a huge percentage of Boeing planes, which is why both American and Japanese airlines favor Boeing made jets. Both Boeing and Airbus produce great products


EX. NAGOYA, Japan -- For Boeing's Everett engineers working on the company's first all-new commercial jetliner in more than a decade, the dream begins here.

In this Japanese industrial city far from The Boeing Co.'s Puget Sound roots, in a factory built just for the 787 Dreamliner, Fuji Heavy Industries has completed the first large composite section that will go on the first 787 to fly next year.

Airbus A380 makes first Thai commercial debut at Suvarnabhumi


BANGKOK, June 1 (TNA) - The world's largest passenger airliner, an Airbus A380 of Emirates airlines, landed Monday night at Suvarnabhumi Airport in its first commercial flight to the Thai capital.

Flight EK 372 arrived at 7pm with 432 passengers on board from Dubai.

The airlines purchased two superjumbos to service two routes--Dubai-Bangkok and Dubai-Toronto.

It was the first time that the super-jumbo aircraft landed at Bangkok fully loaded with passengers, which raised hope that Thailand will be able to restore confidence among tourists in the Middle East and attract more tourists from that region following April's political turmoil in Thailand.

An Airbus A380 made a test flight from Toulouse, France to Suvarnabhumi Airport in December 2006 but it carried no commercial passengers. (TNA)

Boeing planes (save the 777) suck. They are less modern, less reliable and less comfortable than their European counterpart.

That is a very smart remark.
What now if all european companies stop buying american products for the same reason??
American people say they are for the open market. That means only that everyone can buy their stuff, but no one can come in their market.
See how many Airbus are sold in USA! This is absolutely ridiculous! And no american company has bought an A380 yet...

Air France, Lufthansa or other european compagnies still buy many boeing's while they could find the same thing home
Protectionism has never helped any country...

Anyway today was the 1st commercial flight for the A380 in Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
It should have been a major event for this plane that is being assembled in France, but the recent aircrash has forced Singapore Airlines to cancel the festivities.

you have to thank Lufthansa (a EUROPEAN airline) for the orders of the 747 8I project.
Orders of the 747-8I: Lufthansa: 20 / others: 7 (Boeing Business Jet)

How ridiculous! Airbus quality equals or is above Boeing's. Airbus has already proved that it builds excellent planes.

Both are good manufacturer but you also have to consider that Boeing is solely an American company while Airbus is a company that is being produce by the EU, over 10+ countries. I expect airbus to be much ahead of Boeing with all the talent coming from multiple countries but it isn't.
