There have been discussions about newspapers using the name "superjumbo" for the 380, and the 748. I would call it the generic name for the VLA group.
We had quite a go around to decide on Whalejet for the A380, so what is the "slang" name for the B748 ? I don't have a good idea to submit,and need the creative minds of A.net to help "give it a go".
I thought about using "3B" for Boeing Big Boy, (short to type), but should it also be an animal ?
Its big and old : so would Mastodon work ? Because it's now extinct maybe that's not a good omen for the future.
This will give the A-bus fans a chance to even out the Whalejet dust-up.
