I think it's a great country with very nice people!
From October I'll be studying at the University of Bristol and I am looking forward to have a great time there.
I would like Great Britain to join the Euro monetary union though...
I am really looking forward to this new terminal!
Unfortunately, I can't be there on Sunday (the university is taking its toll).
Take pictures please!
BTW, the Airbus total for 2001 now stands at 299 orders.
Don't know the Boeing figures though.
These are the Le Bourget orders for both manufacturers:
ILFC: 111 (5 A388, 5 A38F, 21 A330, 80 A320 family)
TAM: 20 A318 (intention)
RAM: 4 A321
AF: 10 A388 (firm now)
Jetblue: 30 A320
JAL: 3 B772ER
Yeah, this really sounds good. Thanks for providing the info, Teahan!
I'm wondering what planes Boeing will bring to Paris, does anyone know?
Thanks for all the input!! I have been out of town for a couple of days and I think many of you raised interesting points. From what I read, I find it rather unlikely that the U.S. deliberately let the Pearl Harbor attack happen. After all, many people in the Navy would have known about it yet nobod...Jump to post
Hi everybody A friend of mine recently told me that there is a serious theory that the U.S. knew about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The U.S. government and military appearently needed a "reason" to get involved in WWII, and so they deliberately sacrificed over 2000 lives to swing public opin...Jump to post

Since LH's First Class is on the upper deck, try to get a seat in the nose!

The large number of A380's rumored for LH (10+15) indicates that the A380F will be included in the order (as options?). The way I see it, LH will neither get the B747X stretch nor the B747X freighter. I believe it would be very uneconomical for LH to have the pax A380 and freighter B747X in the futu...Jump to post
I get your point C172Akula, but I think all thrust reversers should close at the same time, shouldn't they? Anyone with more info on this? Is it possibly to deploy thrust reversers one by one, if you wish? Do the newer A340's only have thrust reversers on engines 2 and 3? Thank's for the input so fa...Jump to post

Of course Gore is/was the real winner. Are there serious people who doubt that? And that's why many people outside the U.S. ridicule your electoral system (very very outdated indeed).

Appearently Varig is unhappy about the fact that they'll have to pay pretty high prices for their Boeing aircraft and lately they're talking about ordering Airbus too in order to get better offers from Boeing. Fleetwise, I believe it would not make sense if they're ordering Airbus now. Regards the W...Jump to post
Hello everybody! I've got a question concerning the thrust reversers of the A340. I think I read that the "newer" versions of the A340-300 only have trust reversers on engines no.2 and no.3.

If (and that's a BIG "if") a Japanese airline orders the A380, it will most likely be ANA. Japan Airlines is so closely tied to Boeing that it would need a major breakup (or cancellation of the B747X project) for it to choose the A380. ANA however already operates the A320 family and could order the...Jump to post
Sorry, but I just have the impression that BA can't make up its mind these days... Increase capacity...cut capacity, 3 classes...4 classes etc. And, because of the "rapidly changing" airline environment, how can they predict now that they won't need the A380 in 2006? OK, BA has done its evaluations ...Jump to post

Gerardo is right, rumors has it that both airlines will start flying the A380 to LHR on the same day!
everybode knows that LH is currently evaluating both the A380-800 and the B747X stretch. Of course airlines also evaluate which engines to choose. I think this is what the interview meant.
