Re: Leahy: A380 could have had better engine technology

If Airbus was unaware of the kind of engine technology being developed for future engines when they were designing the A380... That's on Airbus. The general information was known (The 787 and other engines did not just appear out of the blue one day - they had been in development for years). If you ...

The reality is a lot of large freighters are getting old, and poss...
