What Can Brown Do For the A380F? Maybe Not Much...

It is reported in the International Herald Tribune this morning that United Parcel Service is seriously considering cancelling is order for the A380F. As reported by Les Echos, the more than ordinarily well informed French business daily, UPS is going to pull the pin next week.

Of course, UPS is denying the story but not vehemently, and the Emerald City trotted out the ceremonial talking head to say the whole business is rubbish. What's notable is that the talking head du jour was Barbara Kracht, who's been out of the limelight recently, perhaps recovering from surgery to reattach her head after being thrust into the guillotine too many times recently.

Stay tuned....this looks like a more interesting rumor than the China Eastern cancellation rumor last year....this may have legs.

Well, the VERY EXPENSIVE project to extend 17R/35L at KSDF has continued unabated. Perhaps the Louisville Area Airport Authority should demand compensation????

With the latest news that the A380 wiring has been totally fixed, BUT SQ still won't get its first plane til October, do you think Airbus is SANDBAGGING so that Gallois can later point to his "miraculous recovery"?

Oh yes....I'm quite sure that Airbus bought a case of Wire In A Can and just painted it on...
