The chairman of Lufthansa says that he expects the airplane industry
to scrap plans for superjumbos.  Only a few airlines really need the
thing, whereas the development costs are incredible.

This is more or less my own view.  Seems to me that by the year 2005,
the only passenger aircraft that will be flying that is larger than
a 747-400 is likely to be a 747-400 stretch, up to 700 passengers is
sardine-can configuration.
