Dream on but don't expect a big rush to Airbus planes in the near future.
Especially when one considers the reliability problems of French technology. The French or France is one of the major components of Airbus and histoically their mechanical technology has been completely unreliable. They design beautiful, amazingly comfortable and interesting things but does anyone remember French cars, or the French Caravelle airplane, or the French Ariane rockrts . The cars didn't run very well for long, the Caravelles had a nasty habit of falling out of the air and it took years before the Arianes got mor than 500' into the atmosphere, nevermind space. NASA had it's problems but next to Ariane they looked like geniouses It might be a great idea if Boeing would build it.
