Virgin to Delay A380 to 2009

Virgin Atlantic, annoyed at the delivery delays for the superjumbo A380, now says that it will not put the aircraft into service until 2009.   The airline is upset about cabin specs and the situation at LAX, where the huge airplane is being relegated to a distant terminal.  How distant?  Virgin says it could take 40 minutes (!) to taxi there after landing.  2009 is definitely not a sure thing…
