Default Re: Greetings from somewhere above Asia

Interestingly, the biggest A380 customer, Emirates, were the first to hand back aircraft as the promised dollar/ seat ratio was never realised.
These guys built dedicated A380 terminals.

I guess there will be some modifications needed now they donít need 2 deck high aero bridges.

It will be interesting to see how many of these A380 end up doing cargo, as was reported.

787 is extremely fuel efficient using a newer design Rolls-Royce Trent.
The economy was amazing on their recent long haul non stops trips between London, then to Los Angeles.

Sean,
Your amazing stories of your trip on Concorde are great.
Rolls-Royce also provided the engines for her, the Rolls-Royce Olympus.
