Are you an airplane dork who’s counting down the days until they can fly on the A380? No? Uh, me neither.
Anyway, the A380’s launch will be delayed yet again, with one plane being delivered in late 2007 (yeah right) and a bunch more being delivered in 2008. Airbus said that the delays will cost the company more than $6 billion, and Emirates is now saying they’re considering all of their options about the plane (ie, Airbus take your plane and shove it). The next time you miss a deadline at work, make yourself feel better and remember that at least the delay didn’t cost the company $6 billion. Unless you work on the A380 project, in which case it did.
