    It seems that the Europeans have found a solution to the 787 issues:

    :lol:

    That is funny.

    Gotta admit though with all the **** talking coming from my fellow Americans and Boeing fans about the A380 problems, this is sort of Karma and deserved....;)

    It's a theme that gets repeated over and over. The AvWeek ads about how shitty the 747-8 is compared to the A380 are hilarious. :lol:

    It's a little thing call 'facts'. Not an emergency, just annoying whistling. The outflow valve(s) on an A380 would dwarf the gap in the door seal. And I assure there would be no appreciable drop in temperature in the cabin. The engine bleed air is more than capable of keeping up with cabin pressurization AND simple laws of physics say that the CABIN AIR IS MOVING OUT OF THE PLANE, NOT OUTSIDE AIR MOVING IN!!!

    I hate the press. Journalism has become a worthless pursuit. Lazy incompent bastards, every one of them.

    Spot on Matt. we have had a gut full of the Murdock / Brooks types here.

    I'm sure Boeing will sort the Dreamliner's teething issues out.

    Cheers

    Of course they will. The 787 will be a fine aircraft, just like the A380 will as well. Both are new aircraft and they are having teething problems as all new developments do.

    My belief however though is that due to competition between Airbus and Boeing, these two aircraft may have been hurried into service a bit too soon. Of course there were delays on both parts, but maybe they could have been developed better. I don't know.
