Hmm... I'm opinionated, I hate the thing already.

1.) It is French
2.) It is too damn big for anything other that international flights (kinda like the 747)
3.) It is French
4.) I'm not thrilled with Airbus flight control systems...ever since they crashed one trying to take off when the onboard computers thought it was trying to land.
5.) Did I mention it is French ?

Keep people in this hemisphere employed..buy a Boeing

United Arab Emirates ordered a whole slew of them, They also ordered several 787'*. And they will probably get the Boeings FIRST.
