Oldest flying 747 finally grounded, 47 years after first flight


Re: Poor Design

Err, no. :-)

British Airways fitted the spall liners at the cost of a couple of passengers due to weight; Air France decided to put profits first. And this was done years in advance of the fatal Air France accident. I still wonder why the execs and beancounters responsible were not brought up on charges of corporate manslaughter.
