Superjumbo Mistake

A superjumbo jet has made its appearance, and the developers are upbeat about selling lots of them. Skeptics claim that the market for such huge passenger planes is too small to make it viable. But there’s a bigger problem: the price of fuel. I predict that this monster will never get off the ground very far because it will prove uneconomical to fuel it. In fact, we will soon be seeing the whole commercial aviation industry on the ropes.

Besides, how smart is it to make something like this, anyway? It just shows that we are still governed by the “bigger is better” mentality, which is killing us.
