Airbus to build plane that's even uglier than the A380


Re: A380 ugly?

I gather the the thing that really ticks Boeing off about the 380 is that the 777 has it covered on seat capacity. Yes the 380 can do more high yield seats - Biz class - but the 777's operating costs are lower and its ETOPS rating means there are almost no routes it can't match. SYD-LAX is flown by 777s every day.
