Your arguments are so flawed, ConcordeBoy.
As is your intro. You are so blinded by your shining 777 that it amuses me.
Don´t forget QF
ordered the A380 together with the A330s, and now that they both will be reality (the A330 is) there´s nothing "odd" with them in QFs fleet. Now the decision is made I can´t help to repeat, a 777 would be, now and still in 5 years from now, and oddball down under.
Where do I say airlines choose by looks? Bull* that is.
And by saying airlines choose by price you don´t do the overpriced 777 a favour. Because exactly that is a killer argument AGAINST Boeings big twin.
And don´t forget commonality IS
a money issue.
You´re not seriously denying that the 777 has a serious competitor in the A340, do you? You still try like Sysiphos, but that doesn´t make it true. Keep trying to amuse other a.net members.
The A380 definitely has no opponent unless Boeing launches the 747NG (and even then less than 777 vs.A340), so QFs decision was a logical step here based on capacity issues.
