Don’t fancy yours much…

One day after Lufthansa officially named its second Airbus A380 – calling it ‘Munchen’ after its second hub city – chief financial officer Stephan Gemkow offered his opinion to analysts participating in the airline’s half-year conference call.

 

“I think it’s the most beautiful aircraft which has been designed so far,” he said.

 

High praise indeed. Which probably makes it more distressing, at least to ears in Toulouse, that Gemkow was actually referring to the Boeing 747-8. Being the flag-carrier for an Airbus nation and the world’s newest operator of the A380 clearly doesn’t guarantee loyalty when the talk turns to aesthetics.

    Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, but there was no disguising the economic shortcomings of the Concorde…

    Anyway, I guess Herr Gemkow forgot to consider the very appealing lines of the Constellation as well…
