Downsizing. My question is how this will affect current orders and future sales of the 380 and 748.

I'm beginning to think one of two scenarios: Either we will see what Qantas has done; cut frequency and increase capacity or cut frequency and decrease capacity.

I can't decide if the 380 is the saving grace of the current direction the industry is headed or whether it will lead to further bad economics.

Well, I guess with today's news of Thai dumping it's 340-500's an answer to my question becomes a little more apparent. I can't imagine a large influx of VLA orders anytime in the near future.

On the contrary, how do you think Thai will serve the North American market now ?

Less point to point and frequency is fantastic and back to the core markets with "fuel efficient stops" on mega hubs. I clearly see VLAs departing from BKK with a stop at TYO and then reach one or two US destinations. That's the most cost efficient type of operation on long haul flights even if it adds one take off/departure.



Never trust the obvious
