    This is because they want the structural integrity of the airframe to be exceptional and not questionable.

    This is because they want the software to work.

    This is because they don't want to miss any problems this time.

    This filters out the lazy and overpaid people that are more concerned about the golf coarse conditions than that conditions of the work they are doing.

    We invented the industry, but other countries are showing us how to run it properly. I.E: We invented the microprocessor, but Japan knows how to do more things with it than us. We invented the motorcycle(??), but Japan shows us how they should really be made! (Sorry Harley folks, it's just not the same

    Just my opinion of course... My flame suit is on!

    The A380 can be configured to carry around 850 passengers in all sardine class. Yikes.

    500 Passengers what are you talking about.

    On my last flight to Europe and return on Lufthansa also some kind of Airbus, they paket us so tightly I swear the must have gotten a 1000 of us into that Plane. Old Brunswick Sardine technology pure and simple.

    The 380 is not going to be used much inside
    the US. There are very few routes that
    need 500 passenger haulouts at a time. Not
    that there aren't any but most are too short
    a haul for a behemoth like that. It will
    wipe out the 747 in the mid and fareast
    where they load up huge planeloads and fly
    to Europe and US. The demand for this
    monster will be for intercontinental and
    transoceanic flights. Steve

    They really should add more rudder surface and authority because that tall fuselage is just begging for some knife edge flight.

    Those Ruskie engines need rebuilds much sooner.

    The Antonov has a much higher cost of operation per ton-mile.

    Evan, I think that is probably the future of the airframe in the US/Canada & Europe to a large degree. I have a feeling the insurance carriers are not espicially pleased with this plane. When one crashes (and one will I am sorry to say) the fall out will be brutal. Actaully for carge I am suprised that Brown and Fed/Ex aren't buying Anatov's

    BillH,

    The AirBus is fly by wire so short coupled makes no difference. I noticed that UPS and FedX are buying ten each in a three deck cargo config.

    The absolute shame is even though it is a huge plane,it will be outfitted with seats from a Ford Festiva $600 for a f---ing ticket and I am folded up like a letter for 6 hours.No thanks,I'll take the train.

    I used to make parts for these things for about twenty years. Contraptions they are its amazing they fly. I prefer to stay the hell out of them after one trip i had years ago. Give me a piper super cub on floats and I feel safer.
