Re: John Leahy blames the engines for the A380 failure

Back when the A380 was brand new, I was shot down repeatedly for saying the plane is doomed to not be the big success Airbus and it's fans were predicting it to be. I said from the start that it's too big and not offering a big enough range to beat out competitors and most essentially, it has 4 eng...

Re: Air Greenland places Christmas order for an A330neo

I would imagine A330 is probably a bit too large for the number of passengers they have. Understand that they need to cargo capacity. Wouldn't 787-8 be a better fit? Cargo volume is only a bit less than A338. If cargo is the main driver, and the 787-8 has less cargo capacity, then the A330-800 is t...
