Airbus analyzes Boeing 787, uses Boeing proprietary information

Airbus has put together an expansive 46-page competitive analysis of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, according to FlightGlobal.com’s blog.  The blog, called FlightBlogger, obtained a  copy of the report and linked to it in its story.

The report, titled Boeing 787 Lessons Learnt, was gleaned from Boeing proprietary information and from sources inside of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner’s supply chain and presented internally in October.

The presentation examines in detail key design, weight, engine, certification, production and schedule problems facing Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, and the issues that led to delays.
