    Let's giggle and watch.
    But you are wrong.. all serious international airports are building new runways exclusively for the launch and usage of the a380.. All intercontinental and big airports that want to stay competitive will have to do the same..

    The plane is not intended for intra continental travel. Unless its from one edge of the continent to another..
    Imagine 1 plane that can carry the same amounts of people from NY to LA as 3 other planes.. Both those airports have runways that can take the a380.
    Then you can enjoy flying like this if you take emirates...(mile high club deluxe)


    or like this



    This here is a first class..

    Sorry, IMO, the Orientals have the best workers, the Koreans in particular, the Chinese are probably equal..
    Europe may well have the best engineers.
    We may have the best pilots, and our workers and engineers are excellent....
    The world is so competitive, may too much so..

    I think in general western people are more lazy and spoiled workers than easterners.

    This begs the question, can it take on a flock of geese. Sorry, bad joke.
    Back to topic, Airbus and Boeing make exceptional planes, may the best win and hopefully this will spur even better products from both lines as pride and competitive forces take over.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Hmmm I wonder if the strike had anything to do with this.

    Funny how Boeing can do it without being subsidized by the government.

    There's been a lot of news coverage lately about the controversy surrounding the subsidies Airbus receives to develop its airplanes.

    The issue is really simple: Boeing assumes full market risk every time we develop a new airplane. Airbus does not.

    Airbus isnt subsidies by the EU, its subsidies by France, the UK, Spain and Germany. In particular France.

    In fact the EU does not support and wants to end the subsidies given by the countries mentioned above.

    Both airlines are heavily subsidised. Boeing gets almost exclusively all orders from the US Airforce, and when they dont, the US congress will do anything make sure they do.

    Airbus gets subsidies from certain European countries.

    And Airbus has taken the top spot for many years if I remember right.
