Today Show Rides The Big Plane
Matt Lauer spoke with him via plane phone while Peter was somewhere over the Atlantic, the short conversation went something like this:
Matt: Does it feel different to be flying on something so big?
Peter: The thing that feels different is the quiet. It is about 50% quieter than a 747. Our take off this morning was remarkably quiet.
Matt: And is it on time Peter?
Peter: Exactly on time.
Um, did you really think a promo flight would be late? C'mon Matt dig a little deeper buddy.
The Today show notes that the A380 is facing an uphill battle. Most air customers looking for cheap airfares, frequency, and point to point. Furthermore, most US airport runways are not exactly ready to accommodate the A380.
However, JFK is ready to roll out the red carpet for the A380 this week and let folks take a closer look at the big plane.
