Re: Norway is to make all short-haul planes electric by 2040

I suspect that some sort of hybrid plane with a capacity to haul 6-10 people up to 500 miles will be popping up in the next 10 years. And for emergency and semi-emergency 2-5 people 100 miles in the same time frame. I would think so too. The keyword is hybrid, because I do not see a full electric a...

One of the reasons BA didn't order the 747-8i:

IAG's Willie Walsh said British Airways picked A380 over 747-8 in 2007 because of a poor relationship with GE.
