I am an aviation enthusiast. A couple of months back I came to know about the difference between piloting Boeing and Airbus planes here.
The very first comparison says this:
Boeing trusts more the pilots: they can supersede the autopilots commands by exerting enough force on the controls
Airbus trusts more the autopilot: if the system is fully functional it will always have priority over the pilots (but they still have room for "non-standard" maneuvers, e.g. commanding bank angles beteween 33° and 60°)
Also another answer stated this:
Airbus aircraft limit pilots' capabilities in situations that require extreme action to be taken; the computer may prevent the pilot from pushing the plane past its safe ranges, which could be necessary in case of an emergency.
Boeing aircraft leave ultimate control mostly to the pilot.
Now relating the above points with the recent near vertical take off by Boeing 787-9 in the Paris air show 2015:
Is this near vertical take off is an example that "Boeing aircraft leave ultimate control mostly to the pilot"? If Airbus aircraft trust the autopilot more, would they allow this type of takeoff as it is done by pilot by pushing the engines to extreme? Also, is it some kind of mockery by Boeing to Airbus?
