HAHAHA! Man, Airbus sucks so much. I'm glad they're not publicly traded or else a lot of people would be getting fucked about now with that whole A380 boondoggle. I don't think it's their CEO's fault though, more the fault of all the socialist governments that are pulling the strings with that company, forcing them to manufacture each of their planes in 15 different countries. I guess maybe if it was that CEO's decision to make the A380, then it was his fault because that plane never should have left the drawing board.
Yesterday I read a news article about FedEx dropping their order for 15 A380s because of all the delays, they're now going with Boeing 777s. Airbus is trying to fix their problems by reducing their number of suppliers from 3000 to 500. 3000 suppliers for one plane!! I'd be afraid to fly in that thing. And all this A380 bullshit is delaying their plans for the A350 which also plays to Boeing's favor as the 787 will be competition free for a couple of years.
