Maybe it's because Embraer and Bombardier aren't a threat to Boeing? This is what bothers me most about the whole Airbus vs. Boeing on this site. The Airbus haters simply hate Airbus because it's not American, along with the fact that Airbus makes competing aircraft. I guess when you bring in facts you'd have to admit that Airbus also makes good airplanes.
Foreign junk? Have guys like bill never used European cars or electronics? Most are high end stuff that the American or Japanese products can't touch.
If I recall correctly it was America West who wasn't doing as bad as US Airways and took them over. And later it was US Airways who wasn't doing as bad as American, who was then taken over by US Airways (America West).
You want to trash Airbus that's fine. But spit out some facts rather than your opinion. Is the 787 not built with a large number of foreign junk parts?
Okay. Thanks for clarifying. According to you, It seems I had the definition of racist wrong.
Please answer this. A convenience store does not allow Black men into their store at night. What do you call that? What do you call airport screeners who don't allow certain looking people on a plane?
Excludes muslim males between 17 and 43 from what? Ric is at it again with his comments. If this isn't racist I don't know what is. Sure, many terrorists have been muslim but are all muslims terrorists?
So by your logic are all Black Americans convicts since they make up a large prison population? Are all jews cheap because you know someone who says that? There are over a billion muslims in the world. Get out and travel.
"Those Indians" don't have anything close the number of aircraft and passenger operations. Forget all the other Mid East operators, do you really think just Emirates alone could have all their flights depart at night? How would this affect their entire network and flight scheduling? And what you're forgetting is that Emirates and other mid east buyers are buying the bulk of these planes so they, from a business perspective, have the leverage and rights to request options/changes.
You didn't think this one through, did you? Not very clever.
This is why your misguided patriotism makes you childish. Do you really think Boeing does not want to sell planes to their "loyal airlines"?! It doesn't matter if these airlines are losing money. How much money have our major airlines lost in the past decade? And do you really think JAL is not going to be around to make the payments?
Just man up and understand that Boeing lost and Airbus won. Yeah, those darn socialists got the deal and we didn't. Boeing and their fans should make the necessary corrections and improvements to make sure they get the next deal rather than spit trash about Airbus and/or their customers.
Ya, ya the whole European gummerment argument. At the end of the day what difference does it make if Airbus gets financial support from their governments? How is Boeing any different? All aircraft producers get help from their governments in some sort of way. Take Japan for example and how it helps The Saint Boeing with their outsourcing. Does the Japanese government not help the companies producing 787 parts in the form of subsidies or other cuts? How else would those companies be able to bid on dirt cheap contracts for Boeing?
And what's your argument about no one wanting to really buy Airbus? Please explain logically why we constantly see airlines buying Airbus. Heck, even American Airlines bought Airbus. If Boeing is that great they shouldn't have any competition because in reality Airlines aren't a couple of chumps like you and I arguing on the internet. Even if they were to get Airbus planes for free but they were junk, they would not continue ordering them. It's the same reaso
