A380 Grounded By French Serviceman Strike

From Flight International Blog (23JAN07)

You couldn't make it up - Airbus A380 grounded by French civil service strike

Unfortunately for Airbus, the US denizens of the darker Francophobic corners of the web are going to be in near-ecstasy over this one...

The first media flight of the A380, due to take place from Toulouse early next month, has had to be rescheduled. The reason: the French civil service is going on strike.

I'm basically speechless! What else could go wrong with this airplane? Well, this doesn't have anything to do with the airplane itself, but still, this is another serious blow to the program.

The 747 did have its problems, including huge problems with the engines. Of course, I don't they ever had the problem of not having people there to build the thing!  duck
