One of the fastest growing Airlines in the World, the Etihad Airways from Abu Dhabi, UAE, have released their new livery on the upcoming Airbus A380 & Boeing 787, which will be flagship for this Airline.
The Presiden & CEO of Etihad Airways, James Hogan, explained that this geometry on the tail fin of these airplanes are a depiction of modern architecture of Abu Dhabi. He also announced that the A350-XWB should be coming in early next year. This would be really interesting to see especially with B787-800 already being in the Etihad Fleet.
Check out the official grand roll-out of the A380:

I am going to cut it short and ask the basic question about the three high competitive gulf carriers going head-to-head with new airplanes, new routes & new products. Who is better & who is the best, only time will tell, again & again.
Let me just take a brief moment & say, size doesn’t matter; quality does & will. If your quality suck, you suck. Because even consumers doesn’t give you many chances.
@BoeingAirplanes at Farnborough-2014 Airshow displayed majestic Dreamliner 787-9. Watch it here:
To this extra-ordinary state-of-the-art flying bird @Airbus is bringing Airbus A350-XWB in focus. Watch is here:
It cannot be fitting to say which of these two would be the best bet for the Airlines but certainly, both steal the hearts of #AvGeeks around the world with a few extra brownie points to Boeing.
The competition is going to be thick between these two particular airplanes. Although when Dreamliner first took the skies, it hit a few roadblocks due to the “Battery-failure” and safety standards but the air seems to be clear now. Whatever the case might be, it is certainly remaining in the skies for at least a century.
Airbus’s A350-XWB having Qatar Airways as it’s launch customer will take skies in early-mid 2015. They seem to have done some hard campaigning for this Aircraft by posting out the videos on each phase & tests of this airplane & made it seem like it’s damn robust to beat Airbus’s records. I am positive but not so. Only time will tell.
Relax & Enjoy!
