If you can't fly out of US without eating MacDo or drinking the American way, why do you travel ?Jump to post
747-600X There is an XLS file available on the site which shows a very detailed report of the orders in 2001 by company. Unfortunately it still doesn't show the orders of the Meeting of Le Bourget. United airline, you can't compare Boeing and Airbus. Boeing has to be compared with EADS or Airbus has...Jump to post
My experience is that security is maximum in CDG, it's even hard to go to the boarding room.
It's good in SXB, where I live.
I think also that 2 is not enough.
I would like to see an Asian aircraft builder for example.
By the way, they are not only 2. But the other one are much smaller.
Arghh "At any rate, I'm sick of these retro-70s stories about fuel preservation. There is enough of it, actually much more than we knew about fossil fuel reserves 30 years ago. When the need for new source of energy makes the new source economical, then we will move. " I'm disgusted by this typicall...Jump to post
The only good direction, and not only for aircrafts, is to decrease the consumption of natural resources. Airbus has understood it, as well as big airlines. Boeing and Pdt Bush didn't. And in this point of view, the Concorde, even if it is a great success of technology, is a bad aircraft which burns...Jump to post
Just some facts: CDG has about 2600 movements every day. It has perhaps enough room to expand, but it's not certain it will: the neighborhood pression is hard to stop the expansion. Anyway, a new terminal is already beeing built to increase the capacity of 9 millions passengers a year. And we're tal...Jump to post
Boy, >>>> your little ARIANESPACE may launch the most satilittes but who was on the moon first? I can also almost say we are the first on mars. You Europeans working on that? Huh? The 747SP may have been a flop, but look at its brothers and sisters. What do you have that has sold as good as the 747?...Jump to post
>> Why is it always a Europe vs US thing? No one gets upset when a European buys an IBM computer, no one in America gets upset when a person buys a BMW, so what is this all about ? << Hey, don't say things like that !! I get upset when anybody buys a BMW. These cars are for idiots and drug dealers. ...Jump to post
Dear Katekebo, You can't use the Sabena troubles as an argument. As far as I remember, some major US companies failed too (Pan Am for example). BA, AF, SAS, Lufthansa, and others are doing well no ? You don't like French food, OK (I like many other styles too). But if you find it boring, it's becaus...Jump to post
Katekebo, you said: <<< Contrary to what you may think, I am not American. I am absolutely pissed off to have to pay 55% income tax to subsidize a bunch of lazy farmers, Eurocrats and thousands of government employees. I am pissed off to have to pay expensive airplane tickets, expensive gasoline and...Jump to post
Well, just some words about gas and the US: - US are responsible of 22% of the world CO2 emission. - Gas is very cheap in US compare to Europe, the result is the culture of very big and heavy cars and very powerful motors (4 Liters or more !!!) to drive very slow, not so smart. We use cars in Europe...Jump to post
