Did a search and didn't see this posted. Titled "Jumbo Trouble", it definitely takes a negative tone. Clicking on the Choppy Conditions side section brings up more of the story.
- Hadn't heard there was a landing gear warning light that went off in an August test flight. Doesn't seem that serious to me because that's what the test program is for...working those bugs out. This is in the Choppy Conditions section.
- No mention in the wiring issues section about the different groups using different software. Writer seems to blame airlines customizations. I'm still a little confused overall on the fuss that's been made out of this. It's not like airlines are adding things that don't exist on existing airplanes (tv, vod, phone, internet)
- Mentions that Boeing has backtracked somewhat on their view for 500+ seat planes, increasing their projection from 350 to 1000. Interesting.
- One pretty bad quote..."In a few years, the A380 is just going to be an old chunk of metal with old engines" trying to say that any non-composite based airplane introduced now is outdated.
Overall, worth reading, but doesn't really give an objective view of everything.
