Are talking about ignorant responses we've heard from other memebrs or personal ignorant responses?
There is no market
, it's too big
, it's can't fit into all airports
, it won't succeed because it will fly with empty seats
, XXX airline doesn't need it ever,etc.
These are some of the ridiculous claims I've read. I really want to yell at these people but I think they think they know better. No they just know what they know and that is it.
Most people do not know about aerodynamics, or marketing, or business. Most of all, it is aparent people do not think ahead.
I go to ERAU, in prescott, AZ
. I'm an engineering student and my roommate is a pilot. He travels a lot, in fact for spring break he's going to frankfurt, EUROPE -- he's a friggin baller! But I respect his opinion as useful experience. But like many pilots at this school, he's see the A380 as useless. He said it will fly with empty seats when it goes into service and when I asked what about say 10 years from now? He paused and said maybe, I donno.
He did not think for a second that this plane will succeed later. He acts as if the hype claims that it will succeed now. Look folks, this plane is not some regional piece of shit that fill instantaneously. It's different and so cannot be judged with traditional ideas!
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
