Re: Next generation VLA, and why it will be an A380

The hole in your theory is the hole Airbus burned in its wallet funding the A380 program. The program has never recouped its original investment and Airbus has to make money, you know.

Re: A380 wake turbulence sends Business jet into 10,000ft dive, causes engines to flameout

'The aircraft received damage beyond repair and was written off.' Damage beyond repair can be subjective, depending on what an insurance company is willing to pay. I'm guessing the aircraft could have been repaired but would've been too expensive to do so; to subsequently maintain or that it may hav...

Re: Airbus A380 MidLife Upgrade, 2021?

Now it's 2017 and the simple fact is that Airbus has lost money on the A380 program. The A380s sold will NOT cover the overall investment costs. To invest more in an unprofitable program like a NEO is foolish and irresponsible. And Airbus knows it.

Re: Boeing supplier - "We're in discussions with Boeing about the end of the 747 programme, when it will come."

The only thing that can be ascertained from this article, if true, is that this supplier might stop making fuselage panels for the 747. No big deal since Boeing could build these things in-house if demand continues. While fun to speculate, talk is cheap, and 2019 is quite a few years off.

RE: Effect Of Possible A380 Cancellation On 748i

Boeing can save the 747-8i if the company upgrades it again.

The 747-9X would have:

- A carbon fuselage
- 2 engines, not four.
- A glass cockpit designed for only one pilot (at least the freighter version)

That would probably beat out the 777-X and any subsequent A380 Neo.
