777X: the gigantic plane that could change flying forever is nearly here

No.1276295 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Some of the world’s most prestigious airlines are on tenterhooks as the first flight of an aircraft that could change long-haul travel for decades looms ever closer.

Executives at Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Qatar Airways, among others, will have their eyes cast to the skies this spring when Boeing is expected to fly one of its new 777X planes for the first time.

The 777-9, the first of the X family to be developed, will have the biggest jet engines ever seen, attached to the longest wings of any aircraft ever made by the Seattle-based manufacturer.

The 777X has been said to be the result of the very best of the existing 777 plane, as favoured by the likes of British Airways et al, and the game-changing 787 Dreamliner, which has been praised as one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in history, garnishing plaudits from passengers on BA, Norwegian and Virgin Atlantic alike.

Siemens-Alstom merger dead

No.1276860 ViewReplyOriginalReport
How do you feel about this? EU competition review basically said Siemens and Alstom not being able to win train contracts in third world countries because of CRRC (the Chinese state rail vehicle manufacturer) doesn't mean they should be allowed to merge and create de facto monopoly in Europe. Besides, the merger will not allow them to be price-competitive with CRRC since Chinese labor cost is like 1/4 that of European minimum wage - it's just an excuse to squeeze more money out of European state railways which no longer will have a choice of vendors in high-speed rail.
