Oooh. Can I have a go?

"The aircraft in question is a sizeable piece of machinery. It's weight, combined with its sizeable drag inducing airframe, is a limiting factor to its attainable speed with the engines supplied!"

How'd I do?

I don't think it's 'to slow', it just flies to [sic] high.

What’s the most likely “contract amendment” that they speak of? How do airbus get adequate compensation for the cancelled orders? Commitment to a different type in the future?

Probably offset with a soon to be announced A350 order is my bet.

As a passenger the A380 is my favorite aircraft. Makes it very easy to pick a carrier if one has it and Qantas don't.

Wouldn’t be surprised if the current 8 bucket of bolts disappear within 5 years as well, they are as economical as a fly screen in a submarine. In fact since they are committed to an upgrade it’s almost certain they are gone...

Where in the world would we be without spelling or grammar?

Why, America of course!

In other breaking news - actually, there is none. Napoleon’s expansion continuning apace. Even if this particular expansion does seem sensible....

I tried to look up continune. I couldn't find it, but I think it has something to do with lack of bladder control at DH!
