Nobody will ever convince me that ME airlines are not propped up by state money …

Besides Emirates ~ who in the world would want a hundred A380’s that only can make money on select routes …

It surely is state supported, and given the price of oil, now and forecasted in the future, their large cash stockpile will be a small cash pile before long.

I like all the adds showing the fluff stuff in Emirates 1st class … while international business class is still 2-3-2 seating …

I was lucky enough to get a tour of the 380. The pilot said it was a dream to fly and especially easy to control during cross-wind landings. He said the PR tour was a great experience and he's been lucky enough to fly all the models they make during their development and certification programs.
