Good thing they outsourced the production of parts to all over the world. We all know how badly those union thugs screwed up the 747 and 737. So now your choice is Airbus running Windows ME as the OS for the fly by wire controls, or a plastic POS put together badly. Great/.

/kidding about the Airbus, but only barely....

p51d007: You'd think those HIGH PAID UNION workers could put something together correctly
some of the time.


The Boeing jets of the past were all put together by those "high paid union" workers and they're rock solid airplanes.

The 787 is built on all corners of the globe throughout massive outsourcing and the pieces were shipped to Seattle to be put together. The manufacturing quality has suffered significantly. Shoulda kept it in house. But, the almighty dollar is more important than American jobs or providing a quality product.

Noticeably F.A.T.: MrEricSir: meow said the dog: All I have to say is : B-17, B-24, B-29 and B-52, these planes were built in ways that could soak up gun fire for well over 60 years. They know how to build planes that have more than normal survivability. Air BUS. Its not AirPlane, its AirBus. Cheap garbage made as cheaply as possible to line the pockets of fat cats and unionized sickos and the safety of the plane is left to be at the EXACT minimums required, and they cheat often at those. Airbus is the culture of death. If you own stock in them, you are a killer. If you work for them, you are a killer.

One accident doesn't prove that AirBus planes are any less safe than average. So no, that's not a citation. Please try again.

meow said the dog: Airbus / Scarebus continues its ritual un-prosecuted pre-meditated killing of passengers world wide. From forcing tsunami destroyed countries to buy Scarebus to get aid, to failing the A380 150% wing-loading test, Scarebus builds on its reputation for falling out of the sky. FL35, cruise and it "breaks up". Nice. Good planes.

If its not a Boeing, I'm not going.

Scarebus continues its engineering of murder and mayhem the world over. How many of our sons, daughters mothers and fathers and wives and husbands must be murdered by SCAREBUS before we stop this animal!

There have been recent and still as yet unexplained incidents at cruising altitude in the A330

See Qantas A330-300 (Flight QF72) emergency landing in Western Australia:

Concerning an A330 crash at an air show in France; a Discovery Channel documentary on this plane indicates that Air France had their best pilot on this plane and that computer was the cause:

Boeing planes crash because operators violate the plane. Screw up maintenance. Basically Boeing crashes are from terrorists, people painting over pressure sensors, people flying them into things or massive mechanical failures brought on by horrific neglect or poor maintenance. They can be EXPLAINED.

Scarebus accidents have a scary high percentage of massive catastrophic failure that cannot be explained.

Ok, this whole 'SCREAMLINER' things seems to be growing legs. So, and it may seem petty, you may want to redirect your praise to me as I coined it in yesterday's thread.SCREAMLINER

/in fact, truth be known, I've been pushing it in pretty much every Boeing thread for the last few months

The plane yesterday had an overheated battery.

The plane with the fuel leak is not ascertained, but given that it already left (four hours late) it wasn't a major problem.

The description of the battery incident mentioned that the battery might have been worsened when the battery was hit with a fire ax.

Do we really need to get into a comparitive of how the DC-10 had doors that blew open causing loss of aircraft, the comets that unravelled like a self peeling banana, the A320 with the hull losses due to FBW tech, the 747's that often didn't leave the gate because of major engine issues, the 777 that had a knack for stranding people in siberia due to engine shutdowns in flight, or the many issues that the MD-11 had on introduction with not being able to make the full trip? The A380 had an engine explode that shredded a wing. Oh and the A380 had a bunch of cracks in the wing too.

New planes have problems. So far the 787 has had a bunch but nothing that should cause hysteria and panic.

This isn't the SR-71. When your fuel-line couplings are put together improperly, it may a negative impact on reaching one's destination. It's kind of a big deal.
