I have heard from airline mechanics when it first came out, that it is bound not to last.

Re: airbus A380 being grounded
First it was too fast and too small "concord" 747 wins, now it is too big and flawed and dreamliner wins. Maybe EU aught to not bother with aviation.

Re: airbus A380 being grounded
Airbus will figure out a solution and have a fix on the assembly line and a retrofit on the ones flying. They have to, they have too much at stake in the 380 project. Besides, they said similar things when the 747 started flying and it also had some teething problems early on. The thing that bothers me about these big birds, is when the first A380 crashes. It's going to take a awful lot of people with it.

Re: airbus A380 being grounded
What gets me is that they say the cracks were in non critical areas.

As I see it if the plane is doing around 600mph with around 500 people on board EVERYTHING IS CRITICAL!

Re: airbus A380 being grounded
Sometimes I hate this site.

Firstly, the wings are built in the UK. Secondly, the production of the various stages of the aircraft takes place all across Europe - Spain, Germany and France. Final assembly is in Toulouse, which is pretty much as far away from any part of China as you can get...

Finally, I'd be happy if you can point out a single (revolutionary) aircraft which has entered service without teething problems? The American's in particular will jump at any chance to criticise a foreign venture - as they did with Concorde - because it threatens their precious Boeing... and their delicate egos.

EXACTLY!

Could someone "in the know" please explain to me WHY, after so many years of advances in commercial aviation, they have never developed anything that stands a chance of saving lives in the event of a crash? Seatbelts and cushions that can be used as flotation devices don't count.

I've often wondered why passengers aren't issued parachutes as standard practice. I mean, the mind can certainly conjure up some scary images of a parachuting passenger failing to clear the engine, but isn't it worth the risk if you're gonna die anyway?

Speaking as someone who is afraid to fly for the simple fact that the FAA treats passengers like easily-dispensable cattle, I worry about some of my family who are forced to fly frequently for work. I'm constantly thinking up ways to improve safety, but I fear it's a pointless exercise.

At a high altitude, passengers would immediately die frozen, at a low altitude passengers would not have time to get out before the plane crashes... There is also the need for a proper speed of flight to be able to jump. No..there is no solution for this idea... Especially given the fact that most fatal malfunctions occur on takeoff.

Ever heard of Wikipedia? It's your friend:

Major structural sections of the A380 are built in France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Due to their size, they are brought to the assembly hall (the Jean-Luc Lagardère Plant) in Toulouse in France by surface transportation, though some parts are moved by the A300-600ST Beluga aircraft used in the construction of other Airbus models.
