All right we'll Airbus debuting its 8350.
Jet liner today at the Paris air show.
The jet went off without a -- this morning but sources are telling Reuters.
That rival Boeing may be announcing a larger version of the 787.
Maybe this week maybe next week so let's take a look at the 787 -- -- got on the market right now and go through some of the crucial components obviously of this aircraft as you can see it if you break down.
There's a couple things ought to point out to you why is this aircraft so crucial about one wise Airbus competitor here it is about the range a look at the range of the aircraft as you can see that as a big piece of it now.
Battery problems let's take a look at the battery and why this matters the battery has actually -- The source of major issues you if you look back to what happens earlier this year Japan airlines the fire -- Boston.
All of that has been a major source of contention for -- background of the aircraft by the way.
For three months us obviously first it was the battery but let's move on a look at some other components of the aircraft mechanic particularly the engines that has happened this about talking about the -- -- because Rolls -- Bring up this -- Rolls -- makes the engines for the 787 Rolls Royce also makes.
For the the Airbus -- Airbus -- 315 also you've got back carbon issue on 8350 it's all about a lighter aircraft.
Again going back to that -- story now as you can see.
A orders for these planes don't suspect -- but several other global companies there's more of this aircraft that -- wanna show you the fuselage take a look at the -- -- Different components the Ford he sludge color -- Q1 of the names here the center fuselage Olivia are -- -- and of course Boeing again piece of that them take a look at the landing gear and we -- looked at this early in the week as well the landing gear.
You've got -- French company here that -- Euronext Paris and then you've got Bridgestone.
Tokyo that -- company there is obviously part of the landing gear and there's more look at the -- look at tail of the aircraft.
Again Boeing Battelle then -- -- stabilizers again in the tiny company doing that.
Now the wings and the wings fan this is what is fascinating about the aircraft as well and look at how the tips go up on the side.
That's from Korea near those -- -- actually new thing that we see -- all the newer aircraft over the last five to ten years or so the wingspan and of course Spirit Aerosystems -- Mitsubishi is an issue their lesson though wanna show you.
This seats look at the size of the seats and again looking at that first custom pony got the first class seats here precedes.
Private company but again BE aerospace.
Is appear as a portion of the season -- just show you again the size of the aircraft look at this this is the size of a Boeing 787 as compared to eight football field.
This is one of the biggest aircraft out there.
But again Airbus wants to compete compete with Boeing and a marketing manager from bombing actually was in Paris early this -- he made the comment look.
Yes we are concerned yes.
We're gonna get a lot of our our our thunder stolen by Airbus today I think the question for all of -- look at how crucial was -- practice can Boeing get past the black guys.
That is experienced move past and convince everyone to invest in the dramatic -- -- content -- -- to basically invest.
And the company well let's ask two experts right now I've got branding expert Robert -- Schneider of the -- -- tighter group with me.
An aerospace analyst -- belt from Jefferies and gentlemen thanks to both of you first.
-- -- what go to you on the issue of Airbus because with the Airbus the success of the flight this morning.
An Airbus may be delivering an aircraft that is far superior to the 787 how concerning US someone looking at shares of Boeing in the stock.
I don't think you can say it's necessarily superior I think it's a competitive offering.
There's some things with the 787 in terms of its systems that make it up potentially more fuel efficient -- long range flights and oh by the way when you talk about the battery.
The initial problem flights of the a 350 also have lithium ion batteries in them.
-- it's about -- than an obvious and -- are gonna be watching and then we'll be watching as well you know Robert if you look at what Boeing did this -- and that kind of got missed all the big news that we had.
They would to congress -- -- -- they went to congress have made and they defend themselves the Mason quote.
-- there was no crash.
There was no injuries we take care of the problem is -- From a branding perspective is that enough for -- to say.
Boeing has reversed -- company learn a -- will move around for a long time.
They're gonna bureau for a long term liberal -- -- what -- large.
They figured out that the economy is gonna -- revision that's one of the reasons you -- the dreamliner they're gonna expand on that.
The big challenge that drug known since the demonstrations -- and leave the way that -- generally a private company.
The third Charlotte have not always to get their people out there talking about the technical success.
Of the different elements of their -- all -- -- -- just forty.
And they have been and he had the same time though Howard if you look at the stop today is as a matter of fact Boeing stock hit a new level not since -- October 2007.
And it's actually up about 34% over the last six months so Walsh doesn't seem to concern about the 77.
Well you know they've actually got -- to order sooners come out being not too many he'll be much more in the not too distant future.
Mean in fact -- it wouldn't surprise me within the next twelve months that the easily exceed the 11100.
Initial production -- they had targeted.
You know when you look Robert at a company like Boeing and it's an American name.
-- there were some -- -- of the move for Chicago over to Seattle.
But they are forecasting that the airline fleet the global airline fleet is gonna double by 2000 at 33.
There's no question about that if you look back thirty years ago which doubles from that time it's gonna doubled down the economy is booming and it's gonna get better go all the news coming back.
Always going to be there.
How -- real quick -- -- -- the Paris air show commercial.
Oh of course I think you'll you'll see maybe fifty billion dollars in orders both companies are gonna do well well.
I mean you can't hum at the moment say one's gonna do more I think that -- -- tells you that the 787.
Has a lot of brand equity.
Right how -- rebel.
And Robert alongside a gentlemen thank you very much for your perspective we're gonna -- the story appreciate it the.
