Accommodating the a 380
AIRBUS THIS WEEK announced that it will cease production of its flagship aircraft, the double-decker A380.The fate of the A380 — the largest commercial aircraft ever built — had been on the fence for some time.I grew up in the mountains of West Virginia and Gary in PA. A visit from a white egret now and again is a nice touch. Crow's Nest is in walking distance to a lot of places to eat and a wonderful area to jog or ride your bike.
Nothing like the elegant, erudite lines of the 747.
For all the badmouthing I’ve done, I’ll fight to score a seat on one.
It’s only a matter of time, meanwhile, before Boeing announces a similar shutdown of the 747 line. Airlines are still plenty hungry for big aircraft — just maybe not the ones with four engines.
The decision to close the assembly line comes after Emirates, the plane’s largest operator, walked back a recent order, opting for A330 and A350 models instead.
Emirates has over a hundred A380s in its fleet, but elsewhere sales have been sporadic.
