Reason why I mentioned it, is not to moxk the competance of the people on the shopfloor, but the decissions made in management. All I know is, Boeing used to have their main assembly facility in Seatle, most of production under 1 roof. Now they do as Airbus dose, getting body sectioms from Italy, wings from Japan and so on and so on.. I do not say, the quality of the feeding factories are bad, I just say, I know what it means to get the modules from all over the world.. The dilivery delay they had was bc of problems with the Carbon body.. Would Boeing have made it better?? I doubt that, but if you give parts of your production somewhere else, then you become a passenger in your own coaster with almost no control..
Airbus, car manufacturers, cellphone makers, etc., don't make all their own parts. Not sure why this would mean
something because Beoing doesn't
make all their own parts. Anyway, Airbus just got a big deal selling A320's to some US group, Private equity firm Indigo
Partners. The deal will spread the jets out across Frontier Airlines in the U.S., Mexico's Volaris, Wizz Air of Hungary and
newcomer JetSmart of Chile.
Every international flights I've taken have been on both Boeing and Airbus jets. Why anyone would have a complaint about either
one, IMO, is just nitpicking. Both are fine airplanes.
