Airbus A350 XWB Versus the Boeing 787 Dreamliner

If you’ve seen the latest addition statistics Airbus family, the A350 XWB (Extra Wide Body) passenger aircraft, is likely to be confused with its American rival, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It will probably take years serving the public is able to distinguish the aircraft in the air, or even when they are inside the cabin.

The 787 is made of a percent to 50 percent carbon fiber; while the Airbus A350 is 53 percent percent of carbon fiber. Both are far reaching and can fly beyond 8,000 miles without refueling. In fact, fly long and thin routes. Be a little bigger, the A350 will have anywhere between 300 to 400 seats, while the larger Boeing 787 model barely reach 300 seats. Both models come in three different sizes, but the smaller version of the 787 can be reduced based on feedback from Boeing.

Airbus says the A350 fuel consumption is reduced by 25 percent. Airbus delivered as a replacement for any operator of Boeing 747 because of its size. The Boeing 787 requests to 15 percent better fuel efficiency similar size Boeing 767 and which, by its introduction, 25 years after the Boeing 767.

The Airbus A350 has 505 orders from 32 customers, while the Boeing 787 has 876 orders from 53 customers.

The windows of the A350 are wider; 787 is greater. The list is endless.

Comparing the two planes, there are major differences between the two.

The A350 cabin is one area that stands out as a modern line plane. The cabin has six large LCD screens that provide all the information required driver. By comparison, 10 A380 A380 was the testing ground for this new technology. It has been found that these electronic devices in the cabinet to reduce the need for many individual circuit breakers. The circuit breakers have been in the past a problem for aircraft and caused several accidents.

A major difference between the two is that the A350 is still in the design phase, the Boeing 787 is currently in flight testing. The first Airbus A350 France will not allow new final assembly plant in Toulouse, until about 2011 Airbus has already announced that the new aircraft will enter service in 2013, but if Airbus A380 learned, and most recently 787, is likely to add two years to the calendar. It has been rumored that the timing of the A350 has already slipped.

Boeing recently announced a further delay in the 787, and the first delivery to ANA will take place in the first quarter of 2011.

The market for aircraft design, and the size of the aircraft, the aircraft will show something similar. The two companies also emphasized that the willingness that may seem similar, the difference between the income of the customer experience inside. With the new Boeing 787, the interior was a revolution, while Airbus has launched the first domestic A380 showers and bars. The two companies have different end goals: Airbus A380 designed the great and lesser success, while Boeing bet their business on the smaller 787 and a small change in the 747, the 747-8.

As mentioned above, the largest A350 carrying 100 passengers more than its rival. Boeing designed the 787 to sit between the 737 and the 747-8 Intercontinental, a new model of the first jumbo jet in the world. The 747-8 has been re-engine and re-launched as a new aircraft model.

Early indications show that the A350 is much more expensive than its competitor, the Boeing 787 Given the size, it is a matter of economies of scale. The most expensive is the largest, the A380. The A350 has a list price of million to $ 225.285; while the Boeing 787 and 150 million $ 205, making the 787 an article for sale. From these list prices, the airline normally falls negotiating the price below the list price. Based on the numbers, seems to favor significantly smaller than the Boeing A350 is very economical for their size.

When to buy an airline ticket in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and looking at a modern highly sophisticated machine, this is not just a head in benchmarking prices. Sometimes it is years of talks between the aircraft manufacturer and the airline, which includes love and politics. Based on the fact that the 787 is in the air, and has a strong portfolio of orders, the A350 has a long way to go to achieve the same level of success.

While the Boeing 787 could be the future, once the A350 hits the sky with paying passengers, the real test of the competition will take place. We will have to wait several years before the Airbus A350 against the Boeing 787 and two are common in our skies.
