I agree the livery is smart (although hardly novel), but it is still like lipstick on a pig. You can’t get away from the fact that what lies underneath is absolutely hideous.

If the B747 and A380 are hideous, what is it that isn’t in your book?

Watching the Heathrow live programme last night, I was surprised to learn that the pilots on the A380 (and presumably other airframes too) are qualified on a simulator these days – before getting anywhere near the actual airframe in the air.
