    I agree.
    I like the 747 and the 777.

    The other plane? After viewing a TV documentary of how it is made, did not get a lot of confidence. Different countries want to make a part, so that each country's workers (the politician's political base) do not lose out. Not sure if this is the best way to do plane manufacturing design + engineering.

    The difference is that when Boeing makes it, ONE company from ONE country calls the shots on design, engineering and manufacturing decisions, even if the parts come from various suppliers.
    With the other plane, it may be a delicate political balancing act amongst a few countries in a continent.
    So what you're saying is, because a RR on an airbus blew, you will not get on an airbus regardless of then engine, but you will gladly get on a boeing with a RR?

    ... And that is precisely reflected in what exactly? The Boeing Dreamliner program being delayed for 3 years behind schedule?

    unless you guys are in the know i disagree. typical no business let alone airlines would sign multilple agreements with the airplane manufacturer and their sub-contractors - engine manufacturer, air con manufacturer etc.

    One common feature is that both planes flew out of Sing and soon after experienced trouble. Another common feature is that both planes belong to same company.

    A forum input elsewhere on the Internet suggested whether Merapi ash got something to do with it. Cannot be. So many other airlines' planes have taken off from Sing in the same period and they had no trouble.

    In the news, someone said nothing to do with maintenance. What do you think?

    Actually yes they do, and it is VERY common. Also different contracts for maintenance, catering, cleaning, upholstery in the cabin, etc.

    The airline business is not a "one contract for everything" business. It's a lot more complex than you realize.

    i am fully aware there's a difference btw "purchase of aircrafts" vs "repair & maintenance" contracts.
