In a context of economic globalization and consumerism, the economy often difficult to follow the road as complex legal processes come into line of sight, and complicate the task of regulating market, e.g. consortium Airbus-EADS or Boeing-Airbus duopoly.
Maneuvers accelerated ongoing restructuring aeronautical industries are difficult to grasp, unveiled in spurts over changes. And complicated in the case of Airbus because of the complexity of relations between EADS Holding, which has been difficult recent tribulations, and two levels of operating Airbus (founded in 1976 by France and Germany), the AIC or Airbus management entity, and various industrial branches by States.
Boeing has absorbed its rivals in the U.S., EADS-Airbus had merged French Aerospatiale and Matra, the German company DASA (Daimler) part of the Spanish CASA in the 2000s. This does not preclude you from having some inroads in the military, in the case of the Airbus 400M or to the aircraft and the cargo version of the A330 tanker converted into military aircraft.
Finally, indecision is even stronger than the two manufacturers announce either delays in implementation and delivery of new aircraft programs (A380 airbus) for which major innovations were launched, whether it be technical innovations or new organization of global production process. We will treat the case Airbus-EADS.
Since the early 2000s, Airbus is on a par with Boeing some years; Airbus has sold more planes than its rival. 2007, an exceptional year, was more favorable to Boeing in 1415 had sold against 1,341 for Airbus. But it has delivered more aircraft than its competitor. Recall some figures: during the years 1955 and 1960, Caravelle was sold 272 copies, Concorde product 16. Airbus has surpassed 5,000 units delivered.
