Aggiunto
 
When people talk about the A380 it is easy to see why they may use such terms as “failure” or “a complete flop” but I do not see it like that.

If Airbus had built and commercialized the A-380 Freighter, would it be a success or failure?

Aggiunto
 
Well let’s start with the first two. Lots of lift and the ability to carry a lot of weight mean that freight companies can load it with stacks of cargo and it can still fly safely. The third point mentions weight reduction. What I mean is that unlike the A380, the 747 only has a partial upper deck. Obviously, half a deck weighs less than a whole deck. The 747’s upper deck has been extending since the 1980s/1990s, so Boeing introduced their newest freighters with a short upper deck. (flip.it) Altro...
