Airbus

Airbus has just released their A380. It's bigger than the 747. It's so big they are having to build new terminats at already crowded airports. The French Airbus is the main competition for Boeing. They've been trying to get into U.S. Military contracts for cargo jet. I say screw'em. Airbus is betting on demand for super large planes offering cheaper seats. Boeing's tactic is that People wouldrather ride in smaller jet for longer periods of time prefering travel directly to destinations.

Comments:
Although Airbus is now larger than Boeing, they seem a bit insecure: http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=66782005
