Because it is such a widely mass produced aircraft, it is also a target for constant aerodynamic improvements. Boeing has looked at everything from the design of the anti-collision lights, to the reduction of small gaps in the airfoil. This has created an aircraft that is extremely aerodynamic and efficient at any task it performs. The 737 was originally created on on May 11 1964, however it wasn’t until November 9th 1964 that production was officially approved. On February 19th 1965 Lufthansa placed its first order for the 737-100, and on the 9th of april 1967 the 737 flew for the first time.
Paper on video “21st century jet” In this paper, I would like to discuss on the video, “21st century jet.” This video is about the launching and testing of the airplane by the Boeing company, 777.The 777 family is designed to fill the size gap between the 767 and 747.The head of the 777 project is Allen Millaley, who promised to do many things which are impossible, produced the plane which is more reliable than any other plane in the aviation history. The first large passenger jet designed completely by computer, the 777 is more complex and innovative than any other airliner ever built. The important thing in this project was, at the peak of the design effort, there were 238 teams using computing technology to design the 777.Design engineers and manufacturing engineers worked concurrently on the design of parts to decrease later change orders and to increase efficiency in building and installing those parts. Outside suppliers and airline customers also are represented on some teams. According to one of the supervisor of a team, the traditional way of bringing problem is testing and more testing.
The Boeing Company, one of the leading aircraft manufactures in the world, has built many significant aircrafts that have great contribution to aviation history. Boeing 707, without a doubt, was one of the most important aircrafts in the history of the Boeing Company. It incorporated several advanced technologies Boeing had at the time, and it opened a brand new page for commercial jetliners. Based on the data provided by Boeing’s official website, a total of 1,010 Boeing 707 jetliners were ordered and delivered during its 20 years of production. Because of the solid foundation Boeing 707 provided for the Boeing Company, the Boeing Company was able to develop a “complete family of commercial jetliner models”(Boeing).
Furthermore, technology is at the core of Airbus’ priorities. Indeed, innovations provide the group distinct competitive advantages, with many becoming standards of the aircraft indu... ... middle of paper ... ... 90s and must now be replaced. Moreover, LOT’s fleet size is constitutes of 38 aircrafts, which is not sufficient regarding the growing demand for passenger air travel (+129% since 2000 in Poland (Worldbank, 2013)). For these reasons, the Airline has announced its intent to acquire ten to fifteen new aircraft by the end of 2014. The Airline is considering the different manufacturer’s offers (Drums, 2013) and especially the Airbus A320 as its characteristics are similar to the Boeing 737 (see Appendix 3).
INTRODUCTION- Why Airbus? Airbus produces approximately half of the world’s jet airlines. Porter stated that aircraft suppliers have more profit compared to airlines; therefore, we decided to find out what kind of business strategies help the company excel, particularly Airbus is competing with Boeing. On the other side, business strategies will support the company’s future design processes in the industry and technology needs. Airbus does not only manufacture passenger jets, they also have military and aerospace projects with its parent company.
Airlines all around the world have to look into different types of aircrafts that best fit their needs for their passengers and the distance between destinations. Boeing and Airbus, two of the world’s biggest commercial airplane manufactures in the world have been competing to get airlines attention on when they are looking to expand their airplane fleet. This competition has been characterized as a duopoly in the large airliner market since the early nineties has when a series of mergers in the aerospace manufacture industry merged or ceased operation. Today we have to look at both competitors to see who has best airplanes in the jet airliner market. Both Airbus and Boeing have a wide product spectrum ranging between wide and narrow body aircrafts covering many combinations of capacity and range.
In the mid 1960's all major jet manufacturing companies revised their present engines with new materials such as aircraft aluminium which made them lighter and turbine changes so they could compress the air at a much higher pressure so the engine can produce much more thrust.The first supersonic airliner is the twin turbojet Concorde which flies at over twice the speed of sound which was brought into regular service in 1976(Smith 27-30). The one company that dominates the private jet industry is Bombardier which makes the Learjet turbofans, they have an approximate cruising distance of 1880 nautical miles(Jennings 103). In the future, turbojet engines will continue to further develop due to the technological advances made. As in graphite composite wings, thermoplastic
In the 21st aviation industry, Boeing and Airbus are extremely well known and successful in the financial department. There are reasons to prove that these two companies gained lots of achievements. In this essay, i will use the marketing mix’s elements in order to compare the effectiveness of both company’s marketing strategies. Boeing is the global brand that provides airplane and gives a huge support to the US, US aviation and serve government customer in 150 countries. Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the most popular model in the world, it has many unique selling points which develop a brand image and differentiated Boeing from other producers.
Furthermore, the Boeing 747 was the first aircraft with such gigantic size, it raised the worldwide awareness instantly. The Boeing 747 initially becoming iconic, everyone knows they were flying with the 747 rapidly spread through the world, wildly people named it as “The Queen of Sky” (Sutter, 2006). The cooperation between users and Boeing boosted initial sales of Boeing 747, with its spectacular design and iconic size, everyone could recognize the Boeing 747 by intuition. Thus, the Boeing 747 become iconic and changing the world’s travelling related industry over 40 years until
The 6,700 daily flights make it presence prominent across all the 330 destination points it operates in worldwide. Another thing which American Airline is trying to do is to be the best. According to the newly established CEO, he said that it feels good to be the best and that is what the merge is trying to restore (Karp 1). American Airline is destined to be the airline of choice for all air travelers irrespective of whether they are on business trips or vacation holidays. However, using their wide established network, the new company is trying to target corporate clients, who travel often and account for a large portion of airline business.
