Details of the Power8 are supposed to be released next week. My guess is that the germans are going to be pissed and are going to disrupt production for a while. There are at least 4 big contracts in the works: British Airways, Emirates, Saudis, and UPS. I dont think that Power8 ever has a chance of being fully implemented, and that the stink over it will result in Boeing picking up at least 3 of the big orders. BTW, did anyone else get a kick out of Leahys announcement that the 380 costs are now under control?
