hakujakua na new orders for the plane in two years,walikua wanategea order from main client Emirates in November but emirates wakawashow zii haikui,usisahau out of 317 orders for the plane from 18 airlines,of those, 222 have been delivered,50 zilikua za emirates pale 2013(kamoja ni around kshs 44,600,000,000 birrions) mtegemea cha nduguye .........
main problem ya hii kuku ni parking space,kanjo wanalia hakuna space ya kumwaga watu 500 na kubeba pia in most airports,alafu runways ni fupi or not wide enough, so, for an airport kujiingiza blunder ya renovation wanaona zii,try to imagine new double air bridges,ticketing,luggage checking....nightmare kuruka .Worst would be a diversion,place ka pale JKIA ,(not to ignore the incompetency of swissport) it'll take 2 weeks kuprocess raia and re-processing tena:D:D:D:D:D

Analysis sambamba mzito. Tupatane base unijazie mbona hio kuku haiwes pata parking. I say hawa kanjo wa airport ni wa ndialala. Kuku wanainyima parking kiaje sasa?!

Airbus made one big mistake, they built a huge plane then tried to figure out who will buy it. Huge such that airports had to reconfigure their air bridges to simultaneously disembark passengers at the upstairs and downstairs alleys. The runway shoulders had to be wide enough for its wings especially during turning. If its not the air bridges then the ground crew staircases needed to be tall enough to reach the doors. One landed in Dar due to stormy weather in Indian ocean on its way to Mauritius. It took them one hour to figure out which of their staircases will be tall enough to allow passengers to disembark. It was expensive to operate and service. Even gulf airlines found them to be cumbersome. You needed 50% capacity at every flight to make its operations profitable. So that limited its routes from one hub to another I.e Dubai-Paris. I remember how Air France and Lufthansa were forced to buy them through government subsidies. They didn't want them. Qatar and Singapore grounded all its A380 after various operational costs.

From now on all new passengers planes must be tailored against airlines needs.
