9:19 pm
is the best aircraft to capture this increasing volume. rishaad: you ordered 20 and have not been able to place one of them. you want them working for you. >> it is a disruptive process and a disruptive aircraft. when you have things that are , here you have the same thing with people coming in and seeing an opportunity to be consumer companies. traditional airlines have not yet tapped into their way of thinking. they are mistaken. consumerrs will be the business, not as a transportation business. we are sitting in hong kong. there is not enough capacity on the runways it has. many years will pass. it is not just infrastructure. there is not enough airspace, and flights from here to london, it is a case where you need

9:21 pm
but help airlines find disruptive ways of using disruptive technology that this larger plan represents, and maybe focus on people who are intellectually more in line with thinking about the business the way i just described, consumer business driven by lower yields comes to lower ticket prices, high-volume's, but still people want to have comfort when they travel. will it work .2 point if you do long halls on a 787? we will have to ask later if it works or not. rishaad: it's possible. they have not announced it formerly. saying thats kelly 380 will be successful if they read engine it. -- re-engine it. is it possible? next with theit

9:49 pm
signals that the recovery is on foot? it is not just china. if you look across the world at they dor october, suggest the global cycle may have picked up some speed. in china's case, you are a bit less comfortable than in other places because it has been supported by the credit home and this housing boom that they are now trying to squeeze. expect the china numbers to soften a bit over the next six months, but i don't think it will be about enough that you would put china back on the radar as being a short-term risk. in terms of 3-6 months disruption, it still looks ok. rishaad: where else are we seeing green shoots? there is more positive news out do they pmi strong, but
