What Do You Want To See Out Of The A380?

Sat Aug 21, 2004 4:37 pm

What do you want to see out of the A380 whether is be a flop or a success, what would you like to see out of it? Improvements to the aviation industry? Records? Growth? Better standard for PAX Travel? Ect, ect, ect . .

I don't really care for the A380 but, you have to admit Airbus has set some interesting standards in Aviation that others have followed . . . AKA First class Configurations (A346 VS) . . I guess All I want to see out of the A380 is the fact that it is possible whether it fails or is a success . . . I want to see

A casino on the airplane, spas, and when an airline states a shopping center on board make it more than one store . . Food Maybe have chefs on Board or What if it was converted to a Hotel type flight rather than the flight we know today . . I know this is a weird subject but and a lot of Ideas will be out of the box thinking but hey why not . . .. Maybe *** A More like a cruise experience only IN THE AIR

I want to SEE it fly. Then I want to fly on it, and see if it is as GRACEFUL as the 744. I was flying on the 744 LHR-IAD just this week, and all i could think about as we were approaching IAD was how it turned so nicely, how it was so smooth. It just seems like such a graceful bird, and I can barely fathom something topping what to me is the Queen of the Skies.

I'd like to see a new Airbus family/model actually meet its guaranteed performance specifications at EIS.

... A332 proved it could be done, let's see it actually happen again.

Thus far, doesn't look very good for the A388  Crying

Hopefully, bring down the ticket prices on long haul once more, allow capacity constrained airports such as LHR to grow in terms of pax traffic even when a 3rd runway seems a long way off.

Also to meet the performance specifications, yes!

I would love to see the A380 grow as expected and meet all the performance standards. Like hold 500 people with every extra and goodies that were promised and 9000nm of range and everything else.

Bring down the ticket prices how, LHR27C. This won't happen if airlines are configuring with less than 500 seats
