They just keep rolling in so fast we can’t hardly keep up anymore.

Remember how the Fwench Flying Brie, the AirBus (known mostly for its tendency to cut flight times by losing its wings and let gravity do the rest), was going to eat Boeing’s sack lunch and teach those simplisme AmeriKKKan KKKowboys how superior socialist engineering is to the awful crap that capitalists foist on unsuspecting passengers (and Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden, in Boeing’s case)?

Well, their A380 WonderPlane may yet turn out to be the most wonderful flying machine to ever travel the friendly skies, we’ll all know as soon as they find the time to actually build them. Which, as you know, can be difficult when you insist on 12 hour working weeks with every other week off on paid vacation.

Meanwhile, their would-be customers are getting tired of hearing a lot of talk about how wonderful their planes will be while their hangars remain woefully empty and, as a result, they’re turning to a company with a reputation of actually delivering what they promise. That would be Boeing, by the way.

Read all about it.

Schadenfreude?

You betcha!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Heck! Its even a day to applaud the French believe it or not!

    PARIS: The highest court in France on Wednesday rejected a bid by George Soros, the billionaire investor, to overturn a conviction for insider trading in a case dating back nearly 20 years, leaving the first blemish on his five-decade investing career.

    The panel, the Cour de Cassation, upheld the conviction of Soros, 75, an American citizen, for buying and selling Société Générale shares in 1988 after receiving information about a planned corporate raid on the bank.

    Ron Soffer, his lawyer, said Soros planned to take the case to the European Court of Human Rights, saying that the length of the proceedings had prevented his client from having a fair trial.…:lol:

    My father flew commerically for forty years. You wouldn’t catch him near a European commercial liner. And aside from that…with the 380…yeah, it took three countries and an additional thirty-five years to build a comparable aircraft to the four-seven. Built by one American company. The Concorde turned out to be an economic white elephant with the glide ratio of a crowbar. But the same company that built the B-29, B-52 nd a couple others I could name. I’d jsut be real fuckin’ proud of that. Simply put…if it ain’t Boeing….I ain’t going.

    Why do they continue to hold the Air Show in Paris? People might not want to travel to Everett, WA but I bet they could be convinced to take a junket to San Diego. Gather up the big-wigs in 757s and fly them in.

    Trouble flling the orders? Well, there was all that time off to protest against Bush and the war, the youths and their car-b-ques, and the demonstrations for guaranteed employment, it was just too hard to get things done…

    LOL, I just got on the net and read a short news notice about the A380 problems, and immediately went here to see Misha’s take on it, just for a good laugh, loloololloll, I was not disappointed :P

    I once saw a Discovery program about the A380 development, and oh boy, it looked cumbersome. Parts from far away being transported down rivers and small roads leaving no margin for error. The philosophy seemed to be that super management would solve all problems, the typical euro-socialist way of thinking. I could not help thinking to myself, I bet those Americans have thought out more practical and cut-the-crap ways to get things done.

    Here in Denmark we have a related choice to make slated for 2009, whether we will go for the Joint Strike Fighter or the Eurofighter or maybe even the Swedish Grippen. It will probably be decided by whether we have a left or right wing government at that time. A funny note is that France opted out of the Eurofighter project because they insisted on carrier capability. Maybe, just mayby, they should learn how to build carriers that actually work before they start with that kind of outlandish demands :P

    Hey in case you guys want some more info on bashing airbus…

    -current projections put the A380 on course to break even at 300 aircraft. they’ve sold 254 in 6 years. BAe just sold off their 20% stake because they know the stock is gonna crash. the A340 line is in danger of shutting down. the A350 has been cancelled a public embarrassment and work on the A370 has just begun, looking at 2009 before that is off the ground. Airbus is in the middle of a WTO lawsuit filed by Boeing for illegal trade subsides and may lose out on the tanker project in America because of it.

    -Airbus has remained blissfully ignorant of their impending heart attack and anyone doesn’t believe me i have the list of quotes from their ex-CEO dating back 3 years of every mistake along the way.

    -The paris airshow is in farnborrough this year i believe (it alternates each year) and if they don’t pull out at least as many orders as last year you may see their stock nosedive and the european taxpayers may start screaming bloody murder over the money lost on the whalejet.

    -PS. be careful in about late 2007 Boeing is gonna be having some of the same problems with the 787. the composite structures stuff just isn’t gonna work like they want because of environmental testing. but for now… i say enjoy the show.

    Yeah, say it ain’t so, Airbus. I remember at least one troll blathering on about how “Boing” was finished and the American economy with it. Everyone was on the bandwagon, it seems.

    Makes you wonder who’s living in whose “parallel universe.”

  13. Darth Bacon Comment by Darth Bacon UNITED STATES

    Heh…not to mention they’ve just mandated that -should this pig ever fly- other jets remain double the standard distance from it in flight. Not likely to win friends among peopl who actually fly a lot.

  14. friendlygrizzly Comment by friendlygrizzly UNITED STATES

    Everyone snickers at Airbus for bringing stuff in from all over. Not like Boeing, with stuff from close-by Japan and China, no sir!

    Am I defending Airbus? Hell no! While I generally have no fear of non-US-made aircraft, I draw the line at The Flying Renaults.

    I just think fair is fair. And remember folks: the country whose household products have a record number of safety recalls and which cause a lot of household fires due to defects, now make parts for Boeing.
