I don't guess there was any discussion of the jet fuel AirBus wasted sending a 380 all the way to LAX
carrying nothing but a crew. I don't know what the JFK
flight was carrying, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was empty also. And the show hasn't ended yet - they still have appearances scheduled at HKG
, before returning to FRA
I'm no fan of AirBus, and I won't try to hide that. But I also won't hide that I'm paying $2.50 a gallon for gasoline now (some of you are probably paying more), and it riles me that they sent a jumbo jet half way around the world just to show it off. To waste all those tons of jet fuel is obscene and obnoxious.
There should be a public outcry about this, but I don't guess anyone cares. What a sad state of affairs.
