Re: A321 NEO LR CDG - JFK Flight Tracker

The airspeed is quite a bit slower, around 50-80kn. The 757 seems to have the same speed as the WB. Yep, even slower than a Norwegian 737. Doing maximum range cruise speed? Winds are bad today going west. I guess, this will hurt it on long runs. It's currently 70 kts slower than the closest Norwegi...

Re: Why A-380 doesn’t sell in more densely populated countries?

There´s just a single reason why: The A380 is a terrible aircraft for short haul operations In particular for the fact that its over all structure is too heavy for short hauls (basically the same applied even to the special 747´s that were used on Japanese domestic flights). The structure is optimi...

Re: Airbus Working With Emirates on New Order for Flagship A380

No it didn't need the A380 to sell other airliners, but in order to compete on the VLA market. Before the A380 the 747 had no competitor, and Boeing could sell it for good money. So in my opinion, it was a reasonable decision by Airbus at this time. We could also read in the decision to launch the ...
