One simple question, Pihero.

Would you have preferred the British to have 'done a deal' with the Nazi Germans in 1940, made peace, and left France as part of Hitler's 'Third Reich' until the present day?

Surely the main new factor is not the B787, but the forthcoming new B777, the larger of which will carry over 400 passengers with only two engines?

Surely it will directly challenge the A380?
