The Airbus A-320 competed with the Boeing 737 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-80.
Airbus Industrie saw that its own opportunities were expanding and responded by offering the A-310, a downsized version of the A-300.
But with Boeing's 777 competing against the Airbus A-330/340, and with these planebuilders continuing their rivalry with smaller aircraft, it will take time before Airbus can establish itself as the world's Number One—if indeed this is possible.

It is interesting that the newsgroups were by far the richest source of information about a crash from 1988; no major news organization had archives to stories from that time.
It was quite interesting to see the discussion related to the Airbus: people mistrusted software systems (in fact, someone was praising the analog flight controls of F-16).
All of that fear was amplified by two events: The statement from someone associated with the aviation community stating that the Airbus software was not fully verified, and the fact that a software flaw was in fact discovered in the Airbus software controlling...

 The Risks Digest Volume 7: Issue 12
Such a delay is NOT specific to the A-320 but is rather a characteristic of all turbo-jet engines.
The A-320 may have been designed to be more safe than older technology craft, but this does not mean that it is. Only operational experience will establish the actual risk.
A major concern of systems analysts and pilots is that automated systems may actually increase risk as the pilot is not "in the loop", at the least not to the extent he is in other aircraft.

Perhaps the most important contributor to Airbus Industrie's success as an airliner manufacturer, the four member A320 family is a significant sales success and a technological trailblazer.
The A320 is perhaps best known as the first airliner to introduce a fly-by-wire flight control system - where control inputs from the pilot are transmitted to the flying surfaces by electronic signals rather than mechanical means.
Apart from a small weight saving, the advantage of Airbus' fly-by-wire is that as it is computer controlled, an inbuilt flight envelope protection makes it virtually impossible to exceed certain flight parameters such as G limits and the aircraft's maximum and minimum operating speeds and angle of attack limits.
