No thank you, after witnessing what safety standard Chinese cars have I prefer Airbus and Boeing!

and just shows how ignorant some are of the manufacturing industry.....indeed!

Just to talk about plastics (my area). It wouldn't be bluffing to say that 99.9% of the tooling, and in some cases the pieces even, are made in China. Airbus alone, has a production plant in Tianjin and Boeing tier 2-3 supplier's (not the moment to explain what this is right now) are directly or indirectly (sub-suppliers) making the pieces in China.

So next time you sit proudly in one of those nice A330 or A340 to come back to China or go to Germany for a holiday, just take a look at the passenger cabin.........it might no say it....but it's "made in china"

never trust 1st generation of anything

anyone who gives a nationlistic opinion on safety isn't someone u wanna trust with your life. I'll let these goobers risk their lives til the engineers fine tune the machines.

boeing and airbus have several decades lead but China should be able to catch up very quickly, provided they leverage the lessons learned from these two.

competition is always good for consumers and innovation.

best of luck.

They don't really fear the safety of China's plane,
what they really fear is the competitions from China.

Just look at their big 3 auto giants, all suffered huge losses,
due to competitions from Asia.
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.

... or last week's Afriqiyah Airways Airbus 330 crash near Tripoli Airport, Libya?

May the 93 passengers and 11 crew members rest in peace!  



Well, the plane was in perfect condition when it left the factory....unfortunately many third world airlines save money in maintaining the planes....if you don`t check on them any plane would crash sooner or later.
