RE: Pics & VIDS: So What's It Like To Fly 787?

Amazing vid. I can't wait to ride on the 787. I just wish they could bring the 787 to the west asap. i want to see it in the US cities. I'm dreaming about it already. It looked like the engines were hanging out farther than I anticipated. Those engines must be huge!

RE: Should The A380-900 Been Launched From The Get-go?

The way I see it, it's like launching the 2012 model of a car before the 2011 version. You want the latest and most efficient, etc. I don't see why Airbus even bothered to do a 900 other than money of course. I can't imagine that whale getting even longer.
