Safety Both aircraft manufacturers have good safety records on recently manufactured aircraft. By convention, both companies tend to avoid safety comparisons when selling their aircraft to airlines. Most aircraft dominating the companies' current sales, the Boeing 737-NG and Airbus A320 families and both companies' wide-body offerings, have good safety records. Older model aircraft such as the Boeing 707, Boeing 727, Boeing 737-100/-200, Boeing 747-100/SP/200/300, Airbus A300, and Airbus A310, which were respectively first flown during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, have had higher rates of fatal accidents. According to Airbus' John Leahy, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner battery problems will not cause customers to switch airplane suppliers.
A Hawk 87A-3 (Kittyhawk Mk IA) serial number AK987, in a USAAF 23d Fighter Group (the former "Flying Tigers") paint scheme, at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The P-40 Warhawk was not the best American fighter when the United States entered the World War II, but if it was the most numerous type available in large-scale production. The P-40 was among the most ubiquitous fighter plane. It was the third most-produced American fighter, after the P-51 and P-47. 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.
In the 1930s after the World War 1 the company again began the production of aircraft engines for Luftwaffe. The BMW factory in Munich made ample use of its forced labour. Some of its successful World War II engine designs for aircrafts were the BMW 142 and BMW 831 radial engines, and the pioneering BMW 03 by-flow turbojet, which powered 1945 – 1946 era of jet-fighters. It also launched its emergency fighter the HS 182 Spat. The BMW 403 jet engine was first tested as a prototype of the Me 462 and the Me 262 V1, but in 1943 tests the prototype engines of BMW failed during take-off with only the standby Jumbo 810 mounted piston engine powering it to a safe landing.
So this clearly shows that there is some problem in Airbus production department and Airbus has not been able to identity or minimize it. However there might also be a possibility that there is no problem in the production department but the marginal product of labor in Boeing is higher than the marginal product of labor in Airbus due to which Boeing has managed to produce more aircrafts in the recent past. There might also be a possibility that Airbus is facing bottlenecks in their production department due to inefficient ways of procuring inputs in the past 3 years and this may be due to principal agent
The history of American Airline began in Missouri in the year 1926 under the name of Robertson Aircraft Company. The operations were mainly flying of letters from Chicago to St. Louis. In the year 1929, the integration process of the corporation began. An Aviation Corporation was created with an aim of acquiring young aviation related companies such as Robertson (Parkers 2013). The subsidiaries of the Corporation were incorporated into an aircraft carrier by the name American Airways.

Statement of Problem Airbus Industries is looking to introduce a new airplane that would compete in the “Very Large Aircraft” (VLA) segment of the market as a “super jumbo jet.” We will evaluate the viability of this project and make a recommendation to Airbus on whether or not they should pursue the project. Our recommendation will be based on NPV and IRR calculations. Relevant Facts Airbus was founded in 1970 as a consortium and has established a strong reputation for innovative design and technology. The main competitor to Airbus is Boeing; another large player in the commercial plane manufacturing industry. Additionally, Boeing is currently the only firm operating in the VLA segment through their “Queen of the Air” aircraft, the 747-400.
Introduction In 2004, as competition in the already highly competitive industry of commercial aircraft escalated between Airbus & Boeing, each with a revolutionary new aircraft under development, the dispute between the European Communities (EC) and the United States over subsidies given to the respective organizations came to a head. On October 6, 2004, the United States unilaterally renounced a trade agreement between the two parties and initiated the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute resolution process, alleging that the EC violated international trade agreements, primarily by giving launch aid to Airbus. That same day, the EC filed a separate complaint in the WTO against the United States, alleging that Boeing received prohibited
In Karachi main headquarters are located while smaller sub head offices are located in several cities within Pakistan. Lahore, Islamabad, Jeddah ,Dubai Airline’s main focus cities. Jinnah international airport(Karachi) is the Hub of PIA. And the secondary hubs are Allama Iqbal international airport(Lahore) and Benazir Bhutto international airport(Islamabad). I thoroughly studied PIA and found few weakness in its corporate Governance system which are: • Less marketing activities than its competitors • Services provided in board are not up to the mark specially in domestics flights • Prices are on the higher side in comparison with the competitors • huge number of employees
