>>Subliminal message from Associated Press to the American public: US airlines should not buy an aircraft that is less comfortable and less efficient than the old good 747...<<
One of the most ridiculous and paranoid statements I've ever read on this board. More likely AP
using incorrect or outdated information. How long ago was that comparison made? Before the A380 was launched I saw all kinds of speculation about the airplane that turned out wrong. Consider also the fact that mainstream news organizations rarely get their information on commercial aircraft right anyway. Subliminal message, yeah, right!
I'm looking forward to seeing the A380 in the air. I'm among those who believe the aircraft will be a success for Airbus. Unfortunately, I don't see any American carriers buying them, they have been focused on smaller planes / greater frequencies. I'd love to see one in AA
's livery, though!
