Guess who's a fan of the A380, Google's parent company chairman Eric Schmidt

If someone like him says it is efficient then all these airlines need to take note.

Just because it’s efficient doesn’t mean it’s economic. That’s why many airlines have been purchasing 787s, 777s, and A350s.

Okay? Why is media portraying interests like this?

That first quote literally described the 787 that is less efficient. I hate that he thinks the auto land is good. It’s so bad that you trust a computer to safely put an aircraft carrying 500 people on a Computer. Sad, just sad:(

Is it just me or is this not really constructive, or even considered a good topic for #real-world-aviation? Don’t take it the wrong way, but I mean, it just seems like a pointless thing to post. It may just be me though. Again, don’t take this the wrong way ;)

I know who will love this video… @Joe especially at the auto landing part

Oh yeah I think he will definitely love this video!

And again we have another biased post. It’s a cool video but all of the other patronization in this thread just spirals out of control. Shaking my head.

MaxSez: Who is Eric Schmidt! What has he contributed to aviation, does he have a Pilots license? Who cares if he likes Airbus, I like some of them to like the real 320. I’d flag this but I gave it up for the upcoming American birthday holiday… Oh My, when will they ever follow the rules! Gooday!

Wait, Airbus is a subsidiary of googles parent company?

No I mispoke, my apologies Daniel. I recant my statement including Airbus and Google having an affiliation.

Thanks, I accept you apologies.👍

Huh, well that’s cool

Maybe google will replace its Gulfstream VIP jets with A380s. 🤔🤔🤔😄

Paid advertising? Much? He wants people to just fly the A380 by visiting iflyA380.com.
“The pilots are up there having a good time while the airplane flies itself” 🙄

@Daniel14. Sorry Dan, Just read 3+ Bio’s on this womanizing multi- millionaire. He’s got a long list of student diplomas lots of high end Jobs w/
Corporate jet at his disposal. No record of a PPL, in the FAA archive or anyplace else… Anyway why would this elite from an extremely rich dynasty soil his hands on a Greasy complex piece of machinery when these rich from birth egg head types can hire help for anything as so gosh.
