    I think it will be a great machine. I use a Sikorsky S-92 to get around Europe because it is large enough to carry the average size family. The S-92 is however slow and imposes altitude limits. It does however function well one you are out of the Alps, just takes a somewhat contorted flight path. We will go to the Paris Airshow this week for the (hopeful) A350 rollout.

    Pretty cool, but there's only one guy I'd trust to pilot it:
