RE: What Is Your View On 'Sex Before Marrage'?

Most virgins are ugly people that don't get hit on anyway.

Sex is a basic need like food and shelter. It doesn't have anything to do with marriage.

RE: Nickname Of A380

Short look on orders is correct. There aren't any with Boeing and only 60 with Airbus. With 250+ orders to break even...they have a long way to go. And at USD15Billion..it's gonna be costly.

Boeing had the opportunity to put any cockpit it wanted in the 737NG..the overhead panel was left because airlines wanted it that way.

The Airbus/PanAm relationship was just a shadow of their relationship with Boeing (45+ years). They would be flying Airbus AND Boeing. But the flagships would be the 744 and 777.
At least I think.
