<ul><li>The A380 produces 50% less cabin noise than a 747 and has higher cabin air pressure (equivalent to an altitude of 1500 metres versus 2500 metres); both features are expected to reduce the effects of travel fatigue. </li></ul><ul><li>The upper and lower decks are connected by two stairways, wide enough to accommodate two passengers side-by-side. </li></ul><ul><li>In a 555-passenger configuration, the A380 has 33% more seats than a 747 and 50% more cabin area and volume resulting in more space per passenger. </li></ul><ul><li>Compared to a 747, the A380 has larger windows and 2 feet of extra headroom. The wider cabin allows for 19 inch wide economy seats instead of 17 inch seats on a 747. </li></ul>COMPARISON BETWEEN AIRBUS A380 & BOEING 747
The A-380 offers better take-off and landing performance than the Boeing 747 A - 380 Boeing 747 A - 380 Boeing 747 Take – off : 9,800 ft Take – off : 11,600ft Landing : 6,900 ft Landing : 7,400 ft 1800 ft less 500 ft less Shorter distance means less noise exposure outside the airport boundaries
How Boeing would respond? <ul><li>Develop a stretch version of 747. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce prices on 747. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a super jumbo. </li></ul><ul><li>Ignore threat; improve existing product line. </li></ul>
<ul><li>New BOEING 797 -- INCREDIBLE! </li></ul>
The new 797 is in direct response to the Airbus A380 which has racked up 159 orders, but has not yet flown any passengers. Boeing decide to kill its 747X stretched super jumbo in 2003 after little interest was shown by airline companies, but has continued to develop the ultimate Airbus crusher 797 for years at its Phantom Works research facility in Long Beach , Calif. The Airbus A380 has been in the works since 1999 and has accumulated $13 billion in development costs, which gives Boeing a huge advantage now that Airbus has committed to the older style tubular aircraft for decades to come. 797 a tremendous 8800 nautical mile range with its 1000 passengers flying comfortably at mach .88 or 654 mph (+-1046km/h) cruising speed another advantage over the Airbus tube-and-wing designed A380's 570 mph (912 km/h).
The Boeing company <ul><li>Forefront in the civil aviation for over half a century. </li></ul><ul><li>Sales of commercial aircraft accounted for 2/3 rd of revenues. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the largest contributor to the US balance of Payments in terms of exports. </li></ul><ul><li>Its launch of 747 over 707 </li></ul>
Forecasting Demand <ul><li>Both Airbus and Boeing prepare 20-year forecasts for commercial aircraft. </li></ul><ul><li>Annual passengers growth rate by Airbus – 4.9%, Boeing – 4.8% for 2000-2019. </li></ul><ul><li>Huge contrast in the VLA market between two companies. </li></ul><ul><li>Airbus forecast demand for 14,661 passenger aircraft and 703 new air freighters till 2019. </li></ul>
Analysts’ Report <ul><li>Cost might reach $15 billion. </li></ul><ul><li>Price of each plane would be $225 million. </li></ul><ul><li>Magnitude and composition of up-front investment (how much is expensed and how much is capitalized and depreciated). </li></ul><ul><li>AIC’s tax rate of 38% was not clear. </li></ul><ul><li>Operating margins of 20%-30% is low for VLA. </li></ul><ul><li>Disagreed on IRR of 15%. </li></ul>
