Theres a new series of podcasts on the 787, 747-8 & 777 which look cool.
Randy also comments on the A380 s first trip to America.
You’ll probably see a lot of coverage in which the A380 is compared side-by-side with the Boeing 747-8. So, just to be clear, these two airplanes serve different markets - the 747-8 has about 100 fewer seats. We think there’s a market there for both airplanes. It’s just that it happens to be a very small one.
As we’ve seen, some airlines can and will include both airplanes in their fleets. And while the 747-8 (in both passenger and freighter configurations) is doing quite well, with more than 80 orders - since launch less than a year and half ago - we think that 747-and-larger airplanes will only make up 3% of the airplane market over the next 20 years.
Something to keep in mind as many of you get your first look at the A380 this week.
