    I hope not, he says sitting on an A380 in 1K on the BA269 to Los Angeles - by far my most favourite aircraft.

    Confirmed this morning. Such a shame, I love the Emirates A380, that business class lounge is ace.

    Anyone watch BBC Breakfast? Reading the papers a poster said they interviewed a correspondent at Toulouse. The interviewer was trying to blame Brexit and the correspondent said the decision had nothing to do with Brexit, upon which the interview ended and returned to the studio.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    If you read the OP article it has ❇❇❇❇❇❇ all to do with Brexit it is because Qatar have decided to downsize their order and therefore it will not be economical to continue building them.

    Just another BBC anti Brexit scare story

    Doomed from the start and billions wasted, another EU vanity project, and before anyone says at least Concorde rocked.

    Not only that if you have ever sat on a taxiway waiting to take off and in the queue there is an A380 then your wait just got a lot longer as the behemoth of a aeroplane creates so much wash you have to wait till its practically over the Channel/Atlantic before you get to go

    Still going to be around for another 20 years though, I expect that spares are not a problem lol.

    I watched the BBC broadcast on this news item, I didn’t hear any suggestion that Brexit was in any way a consideration when Airbus was considering its decision to halt production.

    It was Emirates by the way who reduced their order, not Qatar. Negative stories about Brexit are not necessarily ‘scare stories’, they are opinions of others based on their analysis of the information available to them. You may not agree with that analysis, that doesn’t make it a ‘scare story’ or ‘fake news’.

    Although it often is if it's a diehard remainer writing the story or doing the analysis!

    Perhaps, if you look at what they say subjectively or with a closed mind. Even those who voted remain are entitled to their view.

    But why do people want to belong to something that's undemocratic by nature?
