#AVIATIONGOALS Airbus is presenting a development study for an enhanced A380, the “A380plus”. The study includes aerodynamic improvements in particular new, large winglets and other wing refinements that allow for up to 4% fuel burn savings. Added to an optimised A380 maintenance programme and the enhanced cabin features first shown at Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in April, the overall benefit is a 13% cost per seat reduction versus today’s A380.

#AVIATIONGOALS Did Airbus stole the split scimitar from Boeing?

To substantiate the answer we should start with giving a look at the history of the 'split scimitar', when was it first used and by which aircraft manufacturer?

The first split scimitar used by passenger operating aircraft, was in 1990 by the McDonnell Douglas MD-11. More than 25 years later Boeing tested and used the first split scimitar on some of their 737 aircraft and introduced the split scimitar as a new adjustment on their new generation 737 aircraft, the 737-max, which had it's first flight in 2017.

Yesterday Airbus officially announced the Airbus A380plus, which also futures split scimitars on the end of the whale's wings.
So, are the split scimitars now placed on the A380 stole from Boeing? Actually Boeing would have stole it from McDonnell Douglas and it might be possible that Airbus was just inspired by Boeing to add the split scimitar on their own aircraft as well.
I don't like the use of terms like "stole", because the goal of any aircraft manufacturer is just to make their aircraft interesting for the airlines. Airbus might have thought that this is just a good upgrade for the A380. Also the save of more fuel and money is a good thing for the aviation industry (even when it's up to only 4%, like in the case of the A380plus. Just imagine the distances flown by A380 aircraft every day). I am not a diehard Airbus or Boeing fan, so from a neutral point I see the A380plus as a good next step in civil aviation to save more fuel and money! And for Airbus I could only hope this will make their A380 more popular again.

▪️Composite fan blades with steel alloy leading edges.

▪️Fan case of composite material which reduces weight and thermal expansion.

▪️Titanium aluminide stage 6 and 7 low-pressure turbine blades.
Fuel burn reduction technologies include:
.
▪️Fan bypass ratio of 9.6:1, which also helps reduce noise.
.
▪️High-pressure compressor based on GE90-94B, with 23:1 pressure ratio and only 10 stages. Also, shrouded guide vanes reduce secondary flows.
.
▪️Counter-rotating spools for the reaction turbines to reduce load on guide vanes.
.
▪️Lean TAPS (twin annular premixed swirler) combustor to reduce environmentally-harmful emissions with improved airflow to prevent back flash.
Among features to reduce maintenance cost and increase engine life are:
.
▪️Spools with lower parts count achieved by using blisks in some stages and low blade counts in other stages and by using a low number of stages.
.
▪️Internal engine temperatures reduced by using more efficient cooling techniques.
.
▪️Debris extraction within the low-pressure compressor guards high-pressure compressor.
