    mightbe it sounds bad that boeing has to lower price, but same time it will be cheaper thna airbus then, if same price makes 10 boeing plane versus 6-7 airbus plane then boeing can slice way bigger from the chinese market

    Mainstream education is not an actual representative of a true understanding of reality, it is the biggest mind control church ever, with a very sophisticated compartmentalised traumatised fractured psychological fear based control system and that doesn't need you're belief, try telling the government that you promise not to break any laws and you no longer need to pay tax and you could ask how can they tell you what to do if they work for you, with an educated and entertained understanding of freedom you now in the land of make believe, it is as they say time to wake up, now don't think I'm telling you this because of compassion most of you are to childish to care with poorly maintained minds that will now act in according to you're programming brainwashing education call it what you're comfortable with

    All manufacturing must be done in US; otherwise, the CCP's CAAC will sabotage production and ground planes then sue and cripple Boeing meanwhile the CCP steals the IP and makes these counterfeit planes and shoddy parts themselves. The world can't afford an out of control overpopulated country like China to continue profiting from polluting, stealing, lying, infiltrating civilized democratized god-fearing nations like US.

    Chinese will dump boeing due to the National security risk it poses to non-US nations as soon as their capabilities are in Sync.........Boeing is too involved in Arms manufacturing not to be involved in spying and Info. Extracting operations.......After all no one company in US has the Power to regulates itself unless involved in Covert ops.............The relationship of Boeing and the Defense dept. is too close and highly risky for any major Nation not to pay attention to...........Chinese might be Friendly and Diplomatic but would not take them for Naivity.........Selah

    COMAC was charged with copying the A320 and 737 without the benefit of experience with design and manufacturing regulations or the tribal knowledge of Boeing or Airbus. Historically Chinese corporations seem to expect regulations to adapt to their needs which fails to work in a world regulated market such as aviation. This will require a massive shift in thinking at COMAC and a willingness to adapt to the realities of the rest of the world. It is a significant accomplishment that they have produced a prototype C919 that has even flown but this falls decades short of Chinas stated goal to mass produce an FAA or EASA Type Certificated aircraft for the world market. Unfortunately for Chinas world stage ambitions the C919 may be be delayed long enough to be out of date. Uncertified outside of China the C919 if produced at all will exist only in small numbers. The odds are China will eventually get commercial aircraft manufacturing right but the rest of the world sees the obvious need for huge cultural and intellectual evolution. These changes may require generations to accomplish and cannot just be willed into place by government decree.

    You can not deal with China using free market principles. You have to look at any large company as being the Chinese government. Tariffs are a very important tool to use. Never allow Chinese products to be sold in the US at a lower cost then what products manufactured in the US can be purchased at.

    Funny how when china actually makes "their own" plane, it's just a ripoff off a european plane. They really have zero innovative capabilities what-so-ever. I don't get why western countries still keep pouring money into china, when they'll just become our greatest competitor in a 100 years or so

      Why western countries still keep investing into China? The same reason Boeing made a crap passenger plane 737Max, because they want to earn more with spending less. However China nowadays produce better products with cheaper prices. China is becoming the new Japan, superior technology development that becomes better and better. Actually WE, the consumers benefit from this. The ones are crying are the 1% filthy rich, and I am not sorry for them,. for too long they cheated our money with overpriced products and getting it made with slave wage labor.

    Why is China buying so many planes? Well capital chases assets, and right now China has a capitalization bubble. What will China do to those planes? Probably sell most of them at a loss in 5 years. China is fast becoming japan 1984 2.0

    In the long run, which is the game the CCP is playing, it doesnt matter. China already produces its own scooters and cars. Commercial aircraft are soon on the horizon. So it doesnt matter what Boeing or Airbus do, the CCP will replace them with domestically made aircraft as soon as it can. And just like with all its other markets, outsiders will be pushed out (largely) and domestically produced goods will be given an unfair advantage. Edit: Oh, 7:44 this video mentions that.

    :15 odd way to say half a billion passengers, but then put the number of 500,000,000 (500 million) yes they could be considered equals but for those who aren't native english speakers it's confusing to state one number and then display a different wording visually... Although equivalent they aren't the same. 1/2 billion would have been better in the graphic or verbally state 500 million. Also, Anatov was defect in 2017. But if the Comac is produced the way many of low cost items are produced in China. IE: Using substandard materials, not maintaining quality control standards, etc. If you look at a category on Amazon for a product. The low cost versions made in China will often show shorted wiring, cracked casing, etc, etc. So If Comac is to be low cost jet, Ryanair may be expecting more than they receive.

    I'm curious what Boeing is doing to really fix the problem with the 737 Max. Seems they really should either go back to the original engines designed for the 737, or redesign the 737 to not need the MCAS (the device that caused the crashes). Be even more maddening then the self certification Boeing was allowed to certify their own planes, not sure what has been to address that problem.
