This is the remarkable account of Airbus launch of the largest passenger plane ever to fly, how they risked everything in a heavyweight contest, where the money is staggering and the political stakes are high. The Airbus A380 will be a monster above the clouds with gyms, nightclubs and a 550 passenger capacity compared to Boeing Dreamliners 200-350. Will the A380 super-jumbo succeed when it is launched in 2006? With Boeing determined that it will fail, it is up to the dealmakers and geo-politics to decide its fate. From technological winners to global prestige, this amazing story of rivalry and risk is a fascinating insight to both sides in this mighty war, their rise to power and the final steps to take-off.
