The shark tail, at least the rounded tip seems to have been dictched judging by that picture. Also, I thought the tip of the nose was more pointed. Still looks cool, as for the A380... that's the ugliest angle, to portray an already ugly airplane.
They've got a relationship with both companies. They're pragmatic. I'm sure they'd rather buy a 747 Advanced if it's got component commonality with the current 747, but Boeing has not announced any such thing and has repeatedly said the A380 is too big, which is practically a slap in the face to ANA who has been asking Boeing for a plane that big for a long time.
I have no doubt at all that ANA will buy the A380 unless Boeing announces a 747 replacement within the next couple years. They'll only wait so long.
I'm tired of being a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!
Don't think that this will be the final view of it, the airplane is an artists rendering of it! Btw, the dolphin tail is still there??
"The windows on the 7E7 don't seem as tall as in previous images.." Doesn't mean anything. As for the A380.. It reminds me of a plane with downs syndrome.
