Re: A380 was success for Airbus, says new CEO

Without going back through all these pages I have to agree. The 380 is a success. I mean it killed the 748 orders and begot technology for the 350 and won plenty of orders even if it wasnt the 1000 promised. Its ugly but you still like to watch it go. Or did the 748 steal enough 380 orders to doom ...
