Airbus and Boeing

Boeing and Airbus are ranked as the two leading aircraft manufacturers worldwide. While Airbus is a subdivision of Airbus Group, formerly known as EADS, (European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company) Boeing includes the Boeing Commercial Airplanes division, which designs and assembles large commercial aircraft on a global scale. Both companies have produced highly successful jet models, including the Airbus A320 and Boeing’s 737 aircraft, which is often named as one of the best-selling jet airliner worldwide before coming under scrutiny for falling short of safety standards.

The Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350-1000 are some of the two company’s most recent models, respectively. Both the Airbus A350 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner are wide-bodied two-engined jet airliners that are powered by Rolls Royce Trent engines, although some 787 aircraft also sport General Electric’s GEnx (next generation) engines. General Electric and Rolls Royce are counted among the leading aircraft engine manufacturers globally.

The 787 Dreamliner is the first commercial aircraft to use lithium-ion batteries: A new technology that has its flaws. In 2013, the entire Dreamliner fleet was grounded after the batteries, which are supplied by Japan’s GS Yuasa Corporation, were linked to a number of severe fires. The National Transportation Safety Board of the United States blames the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing, as well as the two suppliers Thales and GS Yuasa for falling short in their roles to monitor safety and quality of the aircraft and its parts. Despite the manufacturer's woes, new orders for the 787 remain strong. In 2018, American Airlines placed 29 orders for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
