Re: Tim Clark: A380's advantages over twinjets still 'enormous'

The irony of ironies is that Europe made an unprofitable airliner that helped Emirates at the expense of European Airlines. The perils of unchecked egos. The real cost of the 380 is not how much Airbus lost on it but how it siphoned traffic to DXB away from Europe. Yes, EK's business plan works qui...

Re: Tim Clark: A380's advantages over twinjets still 'enormous'

If orchestrated correctly, the introduction of the 787-10 on lower demand routes will only drive orders for more 380s, the feed increases, routes get up-gauged. Given that the 78J would be the smallest aircraft in EK's fleet (along with the 77L), the feed would increase with the 787-10 only if eith...
