Airbus says A350 risk minimized as first flight looms

送信時刻:
 
European planemaker Airbus has vowed to avoid the problems which led to the grounding of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner as the clock ticks towards a maiden flight seen as barely one week away. (Approximately 3/4 of the way through the article it mentions the growth of the Asian market ... a topic briefly touched on in our posts a few weeks ago.) (finance.yahoo.com) さらに...

Of course the A350 will avoid the problems that the 787 had with the Lithium Ion battery. Airbus ditched the idea of an Li battery on the A350 during the 787 grounding.

Imagine that. And what batteries will the 777X carry, I wonder?

Something not said in this whole controversy is the fact that there are only two major airframers left, and it does not behoove the airlines for that to get down to one! That's why major airlines split orders between the two, even though it ups their logistics costs, i.e., maintenance, training, etc. Competition is the name of the game, and it's tough to find that with only one major manufacturer left.

they do not build crappy planes. i live where boeing is headquartered so i'm a big boeing supporter. but when i worked for an airline, there were those who believed airbus was superior technologically, but then there were those who preferred boeing. it's just personal opinion. neither of them build "crappy planes".

Thank you for your sensible and mature comment, Donna. Too many people here are simply prejudice. I can't think of any other reason for the world's duopoly in aircraft to be considered crappy planes.

With Phil's logic you would think all these U.S. airlines are crazy for buying Airbus planes.

I agree with John.

There are TONS of articles by experts that point out the flaws in Airbus' composite materials. A simple google search proves there are fundamental flaws in the structural integrity of Airbus aircraft. This isn't a Boeing vs Airbus debate, but a safety issue that Airbus continually ignores.

Nor am I debating what you say, I'm just curious if what you contend to be fact is fact, why aren't they falling out of the sky? Don't believe everything you read. I imagine there are just as many negative articles about Boeing products as well.

"Why aren't they falling
out of the sky?" Because they follow basic laws of aerodynamics? That's a strawman argument. It takes time for the cheap plastic and composite materials to deteriorate. This is evidenced by the multiple rudder and vertical fin failures of Airbus aircraft. Several maintenance experts comfirm the flimsiness of these materials. Airbus has seemed to divert attention away from the structural flaws, and focused on sensors. I thought this was common knowledge? My pilot friends have discussed this for over a decade! Again, it's not an argument about how pretty it is, or brand loyalty. It is a basic safety issue.

It very well may be common knowledge. I'm not a pilot. But if this is so I don't understand how they sell airplanes. I've never heard these stories from our pilots or our mechanics. I'm just sayin'.

I ask myself that same question Donna. Even Captain Sullenberger points out these flaws. My guess is that Airbus has tried to hide as much as possible, but that is just my opinion. I personally think many Airbus' are beautiful birds, but I'll never fly on one. When I worked for AA, me and my pilot would often travel together. They refused to get on the A-300 for this very reason. I have done lots of research and found plenty of incidents and reports about these design flaws by pilots, maintenence, NTSB investigators etc. Not trying to ruffle feathers here, just playing devil's advocate to show you guys the truth.
johndanzy
Oh come on, Josh. How long have Airbus planes been flying? More than enough for the cheap plastic and composite materials to deteriorate. What you're talking about was the A300 model, specifically the vertical fin. I believe they made a fix for it and even so there aren't many out there now; most have been retired.

If you would like you can go over to wikipedia and look up any Boeing model. They all have had their fair share of issues, some which have crashed and killed many. 747, 737, you name it.

Just imagine for a second if the 787 was made by Airbus. The crap people would say...

Right. They should pay no attention to the newly introduced batteries that made brand new airplanes catch on fire. Nothing to see here...

This whole Airbus vs. Boeing fanboy nonsense is pretty childish. Both companies make advanced, efficient airliners that compete very closely in a global marketplace. To arbitrarily remark that one is "crappy" is lazy.

Just consider the source and you'll understand.

They both build good planes, just good for different things. I prefer the Airbus layout but also prefer the Boeing AP.

As I was once told in a tower "Airbus builds planes for passengers,Boeing builds planes for pilots." --Tower cordinator who quoted the two chief pilots (I am an Airbus fan my self however)
johndanzy
That's a pretty good quote. What first made me an Airbus fan was being a passenger. I liked the carry on bins, how much quieter the cabin was, and the slightly roomier cabin of an A320 than the 737.

When it comes to airliners I don't think passengers care if it has a yoke or a flight stick.

And as for Pilots preferring Boeing, I think a lot of them are the old timers who want "total control" of the plane, i.e. no fly by wire or the computers preventing a bank of more than 60 degrees. Why not having these rules is necessary to these pilots doesn't make sense when you remember it's an airliner and not a race plane. Maybe a lot of these guys are the same old timers who are afraid and angry at ipads or the ones who cuss out GPS and prefer VORs.
