Default Airbus A380

According to CNN the Airbus A380 made a test flight today. No idea at this time if Honolulu International Airport needs to make changes to handle this heavier plane.

Such treasonous talk! If American airline companies don't buy Boeing jets, they're just as bad as WM with outsourcing jobs overseas.

I've flown in Airbuses and Boeing jets, and I prefer (nation of manufacture not taken into consideration), Boeing. they have larger overhead baggage compartments.

I hope I never have to fly one of these things. I don't know, just having so many people in a sealed tin hurtling through the upper reaches of the atmosphere sounds like a bad idea. Nebulous, vague words like Hindenburg and Titanic waft through my consciousness...

I don't dislike flying nearly as much as you, pz, but yeah. That's a lot of people to, you know. Lose. If something should go wrong.

Well I think Airbus has done a terrible business mistake. The airlines are
looking for smaller, fuel efficient aircraft that can fly long distances.
Not a fuel guzzling super jumbo jet. Boeing has hit paydirt with their new
787 aircraft which fit into perfectly what the airlines are looking for.
It doesn't take hard to look at the upsurge in key orders for 787 lately.
In my opinion the Europeans have built the biggest boondoggle since
the Concorde.
