    The irony about the cracks in the wings saga is that Filton is getting the blame

    That's odd, the Reuters article doesn't mention wing cracks at all. Maybe it's a different article.

    Your right, not a single mention.

    I guess some people who are ignorant to the technical aspects of continued airworthiness, can't resist a single opportunity to promote and project their own personal prejudices.

    Don't worry, the A380 will be a success...(whether Airbus will ever make any money off it is another question).
    Whith the price of fuel always going up, it will make sense on some routes.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    Funny, but when 737 orders are cancelled, you don't see people jumping on the bandwagon and claiming it must be because of those rudder problems.

    Probably because said issue is no longer existant and hasn't been for a decade or so.

    On a more serious note, this cancellation is about China flexing it's muscles regarding the rediculous european aviation tax.
