Re: Dubai Air Show 2017 - Airbus Orders pt 2

With all due respect to Airbus and John Leahy, but this MoU from Indigo Partners was about saving face. They came to Dubai with all their corporate honchos to sign EK up for a massive A380 order, and everyone assumed the deal was in the bag. John Leahy was going to extend the A380 program and it wa...

Re: Should airbus launch a35k lite

Should airbus launch a lite version of the A350-1000 using the wings, engines and landing gaer of the A350-900.
