  1. Yes but the Max version is a new bird.
  2. From memory,t he reason Boeing sourced the wings to Japan is becase they partnered with boeing and took some of the financial risks, so cutting them off and bringing them home could be a violation of their contract. And is anybody surprised that the 380 is shutting down? They don't have any new orders, thats why!
  3. Ok, but why are they leaving? If they are hanging up their pilots licence and retiring, then they are lost, but if they are going to another carrier, then somethings wrong with the pay scale or employment structure and environment. Pilots are no different than any skilled profession, you pay above average and provide an outstanding work environment, then skilled people will want to work for you.
  4. I disagree. There are plenty of pilots to fly the planes, all they have to do is pay more than anybody else and they will flock to them. Econ 101, supply and demand.
  5. Two blondes walk into a building - You would have thought that one would have noticed.
  6. They are illegal, that says it all. It was their parents who were the ringleaders and forced their children to be criminals. Don't put them in jail, but send them back and stand in line with the others who are doing it legally.
  7. Come on, they broke the law! People have been waiting years to emigrate to the US, but you seem to think that is is fine to just slip in illegally and we should put them in the front of the line. Let them go home and emigrate legally like the people waiting in line are doing
  8. The problem with that argument is that the cell phone towers will probably have lost power, so your phone is useless.
  9. This is what you posted: Your original contention was the A380 must be 'unreliable' Which is not what I said.
  10. I understand that of course, but the post implied that the 380's were being replaced to lower the fleet age, which apparently was not the main reason.
  11. No problems here understanding that, but you seem to have stuck in your craw the obvious - If you want to lower your fleet age, take your oldest birds out of service, not one that is near the mean age.
  12. That makes sense to me too. The 380 is a white elephant as evidenced by the dismal sales and acceptance. But that does not explain the reason of the OP that they were taking them out of service to lower their average age. That obviously was a false statement.
