  • The Dream Liners are so far ahead of the competition that it is no longer a race. The 777X, with the the new 787 wing and GE engines, will also make it very hard to have race in it's market. Air Bus is in the proverbial hard place with a rock. So much for the A380, orders. May it rest in peace. I heard their web site was down and no one could order one. Not one this year. Hummmmmm, that sounds familiar, haven't I heard that excuse recently.

  • How about some good PR about the 777 from actual customers! So far it has been stories of repeated mechanical problems with this aircraft.
