    True, but it is undeniable that Airbus is ahead in the order race in the narrow body segment.

  • Should Airplane Manufacturers Worry About China's Airplane Industry? [View article]
    Thanks for reading, Jason! I have no idea what the WTO can do about COMAC.
    Honestly I don't think it will be to COMAC's benefit to destroy Western companies. As long as China does not have the supply chain for its products within China itself, Chinese projects will be depending on other projects.

    So a simple thing to do is for companies not to sell/share their technology with Chinese companies that easily. Additionally for engineers it probably will always be more attractive to work for non-Chinese companies, so treat them well and it all should not be a big problem.

    Merry Christmas to all of you.

    I wouldn't say China is ahead, but for a communist country China is much more striving and achieving its goals than Russia does. Russia, with all due respect, is pretty slow in everything.

    If the Chinese aerospace industry matures, it will be much more of a threat to Boeing and Airbus than the Russian aerospace industry.

  • Update: Air China Deal Encouraging For Boeing After Air France-KLM Deferred Delivery [View article]
    BB Research is correct here. If oil prices / jet fuel prices remain low the pressure to order fuel efficient aircraft fades. Even if oil prices remain low for only 2 years order inflow might decrease for the airplane manufacturers.
    Airlines invest to have a strong fleet member for 10-20 years, but if oil prices are low airlines will be willing to bridge that period on the short term... so orders are being pushed away in time.

  • Wide Body Battle: Boeing 787-10 Or Airbus A350-900? [View article]
    The 787 probably has a bigger wow-factor indeed.

    It would, but I am not sure whether it would offset the benefit of wider seats on the Airbus.

    Can't really compare the Boeing 737-900ER with the A321, the A321 is superior in about every aspect. In my future 'analyses' I will try to include more detail to obtain a more complete article for you as a reader. Thank you for the feedback.

  • Delta Air Lines: How New Efficient Aircraft Will Boost Results In The Future (Part 2) [View article]
    We shouldn't but this unlike fuel burned during cruise, WheelTug is much more airline specific. Airlines that apply it will have an advantage but I am looking at the most fuel intensive part of the mission here, which is not the taxi phase ;)

  • Boeing Or Airbus: Whose Product Line Is Shaped Better For The Future? [View article]
    I had a look at it, but with Airbus nor Boeing really stated they will apply this. in what contexts does your WheelTug make a connection to the subject of my article?

    Wheeltug is an airline dependent system, it makes absolutely no sense in taking this system into account. Be a bit reasonable, please.

  • Boeing: How The 777X Will Beat The Brand New Airbus A350 (Part 1) [View article]
    It's a bit of a chess game indeed. What I find remarkable is that in Airbus' view they will bring the most efficient aircraft to the market soon (which probably is true), but after the 777X was announced they said 'Ey, we forced Boeing to do this'. With that Airbus degrades their A350 family to something that has been brought to the market to force Boeing to spend money, rather than being the most fuel efficient aircraft. It has to be noted that airlines were pushing Boeing to come up with a new 777 far before that.
    Future will tell whether the 777X has the same destiny as the A340....

    I wonder whether China will play a role in the coming 2-3 decades...
