Totally agree with you...especially on the Airbus part... Singapore Airlines prides itself of its flagship, the Airbus A340-500 fleet (while they wait for the AIRBUS A380). The A340-500 can make possible this SIN
flight... If I were Singapore Airlines I would feel more than insulted... It would make me start thinking of canceling the order I would have of the 787...
In any case Boeing's man acknowledged (to his shame) that his LONGEST flight was on an AIRBUS craft... Not in one of "his"!!!
I love Boeing aircraft as well. But that man made a fool of himself...and maybe of Boeing itself!
About the general presentation...I prefer the A380 one...a much "happier" one...Seems the Europeans (especially on the Mediterranean countries) know what a celebration is, and how to perform it to it's best!
The NBC man really made a fool of himself saying "I command to be happier than the Italians" or something like that... Augh!
Apart from that the 787 is a wonderful plane...Hope to see more shots of it soon in A.net!
3 cheers to BOEING for this one...WELL done!
