<i>Have any airports started to make gate adjustments for this bird?

"NOOO! The "shark tail" was my favorite part of the 7E7 design!"
repeat after me: It was only an artists impression!
I can guarantee you that the final 7E7 configuration will be much more conventional that the early 7E7 artist impressions...
Nope, the -200 has the center gear as well.
But the A340 can fly without the center gear, but I presume with some MTOW limitations.
I know ground-clearance might be a significant issue, but how neat would it be to have a stretched A330 (A330-600?) powered by two Trent 900's?Jump to post

SAS has been talking about getting rid of the A321's for a while now - not because they are bad aircraft, and I don't really buy the line about it being too big for its routes - but because the A321's would be <b>worth the most $$$</b> on the 2nd-hand aircraft market. They could sell the <acronym ti...Jump to post
It most certainly is real - I flew that flight myself this last sunday! <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> It was kind of neat to experience it on such short flight, IFE and all. The 777 was nice and quiet. (This was my first 777 experience) But I have to say that I was no...Jump to post
<i>"There is always a "hump" behind the cockpit, and I don't think this "hump" is big enough to accomodate a whole passenger deck. You can use the cable on top of the hump as reference.

<i>I'm not convinced the image shows the cockpit of the first A380. Maybe the photographer tilted his camera but keep in mind that the cockpit is halfway between the two passenger decks.

I'm guessing the majority of the A330 pilots come from the DC-10 - to keep seniority levels similar, etc... I'm glad to see that NWA seems to be accelerating their introduction of the A330.
