The P-40 was easy to build and maintain and it offered the additional advantage of low cost, which kept it in production as a ground-attack aircraft long after it was obsolete as a fighter. The P-40 saw combat in many war theaters, in wide variety of climatic conditions
Ryanair is one the few airlines which have complete fleet provided by Boeing (CNBC, 2013). Ryanair intends to exploit the technical prowess of Boeing to create fuel efficient aircrafts with more seats within the aircraft space thus transferring the cost benefits to the customers. Ryanair demands that their fleet of aircrafts are should be similar in design to reduce the maintenance costs and Boeing caters to their demands with timely delivery of the
Boeing Commercial Airplanes is being the leader in commercial aviation by offering airplanes and services that with characters of superior design, efficiency and value to customers around the world. In1916, William Boeing, had built the company’s first airplane which was a seaplane for two with a range of 320 nautical miles. Since then, Boeing has defined the modern jetliner and introduced the twin-aisle cabin, the glass cockpit and countless other innovation. Moreover, in 1997, the merger of Boeing and McDonnell, gives the company a 70-year heritage of leadership in commercial aviation. Today, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, leads by James (Jim) F. Albaugh, offers a family of technologically advanced airplanes, mainly the 737, 747, 767 and 777 families of airplanes which can seat more than 500 and can boasts the longest range in the world, at more than 9,300 nautical miles.
However, the airline industry increases air traffic to smaller airports which benefit Airbus competitors that were building midsize, wide-bodied planes carrying over 300 passengers (Gordon,2018). In 2000 Airbus was 80% owned by the European Aeronautic Defense and Space company and 20% by British BAE Systems (Pitt, Koufopolulos,2012). This helps lower the cost for the consumer and fight it, competitors, as the European Union gives aid to Airbus for their acquisitions. For the consumers, the lower the cost of acquisition is a good entity. Consequently, for Airbus biggest competitors, Boeing, responded from Airbus aircraft by flooding the market with mid-size planes to help the increased volume of air traffic (Hambug,2017).
However, in 2009 Airbus opened an assembly plant in Tianjin, China for production of its A320 series airliners. Technology Airbus sought to compete with the well-established Boeing in the 1970s through its introduction of advanced technology. For example, the A300 made the most extensive use of composite materials yet seen in an aircraft of that era, and by automating the flight engineer's functions, was the first wide body jet to have a two-man flight crew. In the 1980s Airbus was the first to introduce digital fly-by-wire controls into an airliner (the A320). With Airbus now an established competitor to Boeing, both companies use advanced technology to seek performance advantages in their products.
