Interest has declined among airlines for double-decker, quad-engine jets like the a380 and boeing 747. Boeing has completely dropped the category of large, four-engine planes like its 747 and the competing airbus a380 in its predictions, estimating that this type of plane will soon become obsolete and while of course any plane will become obsolete in time, boeing sees no future for this breed of aircraft in. A airbus entregou 216 unidades do a380 em 10 anos (airbus) perto de completar 10 anos na aviação comercial, o gigante a380 superou o boeing 747 em presença no mercado hoje a frota de a380 considerados operacionais, segundo o flight fleets analyzer, é composta por 213 unidades, enquanto. Excluding military jets, there remains two types of aircraft: commercial passenger planes, such as the boeing 747, and private passenger aircraft a cruise speed of mach 085, and an aircraft from airbus, boeing's rival, the a380, the largest passenger plane in the sky, with the same typical cruising speed. With the airbus a380 weighing in fully loaded at 1,265,000 pounds, you might think stopping it within a reasonable distance after landing would require a in fact, unlike the thrust reversers on most airliners, including the boeing 747 jumbo, they do not stop the aircraft in a shorter distance than brakes and spoilers alone.
On the simple comparison of orders, the 787 is beating the a380, though airbus has the satisfaction of knowing its superjumbo is slowly wiping the ageing boeing 747 from the skies technical problems did ground a norwegian air dreamliner last week in the us, but burning batteries and emergency. Fuel-efficient airplanes and improved technology changing air travel, making jumbo jets like the venerable boeing 747 obsolete. During the 1990s both companies researched the feasibility of a passenger aircraft larger than the boeing 747, which was then the largest airliner in operation airbus subsequently launched a full-length double-deck aircraft, the a380, a decade later while boeing decided. Virgin atlantic and quantas have both booked aircraft, but the manufacturer has acknowledged that these planes may never be built if the market for the a380 doesn't improve while boeing spent much less on their 747-8 extension than airbus invested in the enormous a380, neither plane may be very.
Boeing sees the future, and it doesn't include jumbo passenger jets not its own iconic 747 not the airbus a380 the us planemaker has dropped the category reserved for four-engine behemoths from its annual forecast for the commercial- aircraft market instead, boeing predicts that airlines will use more. Boeing 747-400, versus, airbus a380-800 7070 m, 231 ft 11 in, length, 7300 m, 239 ft 6 in 6444 m, 211 ft 5 in, wingspan, 7980 m, 261 ft 10 in 54120 m2, 5,825 ft2, wingarea, 84500 m2, 9,096 ft2 1941 m, 63 ft 8 in, height, 2410 m, 79 ft 1 in 4, engines, 4 282 kn, 63,300 lbf, thrust per engine, 334 kn, 75,152 lbf. The published maximum operating mach number (mmo) for the b747 is mach 092 but it can sometimes be exceeded accidentally due to aircraft upset it has been reported that mach 099 was attained during a boeing test flight in a slight nose down attitude the a380 has a slower mmo of mach 089. The order battle between boeing (nyse: ba) and airbus (otcpk:eadsf, otcpk:eadsy) is one way for the companies to flex their muscles, next to marketing their respective products as the best solution with the highest fuel efficiency and passenger comfort even though the orders (in terms of value) are.
Airbus and boeing are again engaged in a serious dispute over comparative performance figures for the airbus a380 and the boeing 747-8 following a decision by the uk advertising standards authority (asa) to dismiss an airbus claim over what the manufacturer considers to be misleading advertising. Boeing is acknowledging there is “no significant demand” for passenger versions of the 747 jumbo airliner, or its even-larger airbus rival, the a380 the company only expects to sell freighter and vip private versions of the airplane that was once its flagship jet. Skyteam alliance member korean air will bring its boeing 747-8 aircraft onto sydney-seoul flights from later this year, before returning its airbus a380 superjumbo to australian skies from september 1 2017 from seoul (and september 2 from sydney) through to the end of october, the boeing 747-8.

Two-engine aircraft such as the boeing 777 and the airbus a350 can now carry similar passenger loads for nearly the same distance while burning much less fuel, making the larger superjumbo jets a prime target for cost cutting so with 747 fleets being retired more quickly than ever before and the a380. The 555 seat airbus a380 aircraft is the most ambitious civil aircraft program yet the airbus a380 is the world's largest airliner, eclipsing boeing's 747.
The 747-8 is a development of the 747-400 the main changes are new wings with increased wing span, new engines, a longer fuselage and new avionics the gene. United parcel service's new order of 14 boeing 747 freighters will keep 747 production going to at least 2022 that order could once have been filled by the airbus a380 freighter, now canceled.
It's like part of the world doing on 50hz and others going for 60hz this is what makes designing and calibrating products like aircraft visual docking guidance systems a real headache anyway, i'm naturally biased towards european products so it has to be airbus however, the 747 looks so elegant for its. Similarly, the 747–8 (118 in service[sept 2017]) has suffered no crashes, and is, in theory, as safe as the a380 it is also worth noting that the airbus a340 has a perfect safety record over 303 mf still, given the advances in aircraft r&d discussed above, combined with better aircraft flight-control and flight following services. Boeing and airbus announced huge deals with iran air last year that included 16 four-engine jumbo jets, offering much-needed lifelines for the boeing 747 and airbus a380 programs but when the aircraft manufacturers unveiled final agreements with the airline days before christmas, the double-deckers.
