Re: 60 years of the Rome Treaties

Germany (and France) is developing in a direction where all Europe gain from this development. 3.Smaller states in Europe has a value. Before they were just chess pieces in the big players game. 4.Eastern and sout...

Re: Airbus is examining 'A380-Plus'

The A380 has a history of underusing it's cabin floor area (as many have argumented here for quite some time). The mega orders from Emirates made this less of a problem and probably sussed Airbus to sleep a bit. So when the orders from Emirates ended they suddenly woke up to the reality that the bi...

If A330Neo gets 500 sold it means 1000 engines for RR without major development and 500 frames for Airbus without major development.

I think that A330Neo will sell around 40% marketshare until around 2025 when the 787 will get a Neo treatment.
