Re: Airbus puts supply chain executive at helm of A220

Re: How upset are airports that spent massive $$$ on a380 infrastructure?

I don't think airports are 'upset', as mentioned the A380 benefits were done along side other improvements and it's money spent long ago, water under the bridge. In the US, the air side stuff is eligible for funding via the AIP. LAX and JFK certainly have had a number of operators retire their A380s...

Re: Airbus puts supply chain executive at helm of loss-making A220

you can make that same argument about B787. There was no guarantee that the $20 billion spent on R&D or the $26 billion in production losses would be recouped but they went ahead with it. The path to recovering even a $10 billion investment from Airbus to make A220 profitable is minimal in comp...
