Airbus A380 makes first passenger flight

The airbus A380 made its first official passenger flight from Toulouse today. Ex-Virgin Atlantic pilot Pete Chandler captained the flight with Air France and Lufthansa crew. The light load consisted of carefully selected media.

John Leahy said “We have had our problems over the last 12 months and failed our delivery guarantees. No passenger airline has cancelled. I promise 20 more orders before the year end.” It was also pointed out by Mr Leahy that the Airbus had met or beaten other performance obligations set out for it.

In the Monday electronic and Montage editions, ABTN will be reviewing the Airbus.
