Just took a magic carpet ride on an A380 into Heathrow and upon landing saw the cramped tiger cage trashpile planes US carriers are flying on long distance routes-not ONE 747 or 380 in all of US
Upper deck of an A380 just a wonderful, quiet, new feel, spacious ride. Then you see the 30 year old 757's and other short distance, single aisle, planes US carriers are using for 8, 9 and 10 hour flights. The A380 is on death row as financial mavens command and control flying-customers are just useful idiots in an algorithm. The just awful 350 is an accountants dream-passengers are broken down valises after even a short flight in that stockade-but oh the profit! If you get a chance to fly a jumbo, 747 or 380 take it-Wall Street has made comfortable flying their number one enemy and every airline in the world is under pressure to send them to the boneyard.
