Nope, nothing against chubby people, but with airplanes... To me the A380 looks like an A320 that grew another deck on its back...

No man so many people call the A380 a flying whale

honestly, i dont think there is a future for big, gigantic aircraft, rather smaller, more effecient, faster, and increased range, for aircraft.

the 'biggest' ended with Boeings 747

nevertheless, i love the A380 it is a beautiful aircraft!

Lol, i'm just teasing you, Giladist. hehe But, yes actually that is what I have always said, the A380 looks exactly like the A320 but with an extra deck! No one understood me though except you

Well, to be honest all the people who are bashing the whale-jet do not have a right-- (well just a little maybe ) But, when the A380 EIS in Octrober this year, THEN and only THEN must people must judge the plane.

Biman, Bangladesh Airlines Flight BG 006 from Dubai to Dhaka had an accident during departure and failed to take off around 0630am today. All 236 passengers, including crew, are safe, and were immediately evacuated from the aircraft. Fourteen passengers sustained minor injuries.



Dubai Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) has announced an 8-hour closure for Dubai International Airport starting 0630 hrs, March 12, 2007. The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and DCA are investigating the cause of the accident


All the flights are now diverted to AUH, SHJ, MCT, and KUWAIT. Im glad no one got seriously hurt

No problem Mehdi. Actually, there are 2 beliefs:
1. The engine caught fire just as the plane was taking off, which prompted BG to hault the takeoff. This action applied pressure on the nosegear due to the sudden force of the brakes--which collapsed the nosegear.

2. Parts of a wheel of a Cathay Pacific Cargo Plane (B 747-200),which landed in DXB earlier that morning was the cause of the BG's crash, since it mengled with the wheels and/or engines upon take-off.


ITs pretty scary and thank God the BG pilots managed not to flip or crash the airplane more significantly.

Qatar Airways to begin services to Victoria

Qatar Airways has won rights to launch daily services to Melbourne under a bilateral air services deal with the Gulf nation, Qatar.

Deputy Prime Minister and Transport Minister Mark Vaile announced the successful negotiation of the new arrangements allowing Qatar's national carrier to operate services to and from Melbourne.

Australian carriers will gain access to Europe through Qatar's capital Doha under the agreement which Mr Vaile said was an important milestone in the development of Australia's aviation relations with the Middle East.

He said the government valued the contribution airlines like Qatar Airways can make to Australia.

Mr Vaile said Qatar's government had recognised the significance Australia placed on the issue of fair and equitable access for Australian carriers to developing aviation hubs.

"Without the ability to operate services through intermediate hubs such as Doha to long haul destinations in Europe, Australian carriers cannot compete effectively on the world stage," he said.

Under the revised air services agreement finalised in Doha on March 15, Qatar Airways can launch the daily service to Melbourne and introduce a second daily service to another Australian city from 2008.

Mr Vaile said regional tourist destinations had the opportunity to benefit from the new agreement.

"Australia is an attractive and competitive tourist destination and it will now be up to airports and tourism operators to make the most of the opportunities created by the arrival of Qatar Airways," he said.

The government would continue to encourage increased airline operations into Australia but success would depend on the willingness of state governments, airport operators and tourism bodies to support the new business, he said.

He also called on the Victorian Government to immediately scrap the stamp duty it imposes on international airline insurance contracts.

"The duty not only contravenes Australia's international obligations but represents an unnecessary cost to international airlines and possible impediment to growth," he said.

^ Great news! But where is the news. Last I heard that QR and OZ failed to reach an agreement and that the talks have failed.
