and some people. everyone has a voice from the twitter and you could be on the street join the global conversation on now to zero. it's the end of the runway for the world's biggest passenger plane as air bus pulls the plug on its a three eighty. hello i'm a star and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. iran calls it the war . israel says its goal is to advance war with terror whereas an easing in poland where iran is center stage but absent. a joint resolution is passed. a push to end u.s. support for the war in yemen is one step closer to becoming reality but challenges

remain. not backing down protesters in haiti keep up the pressure on the president of the noise to step down . aircraft manufacturer says it will stop making the world's largest passenger plane by twenty twenty one the a three eighty super jumbo has been in production for the past twelve years with the gulf carrier emirates being its biggest user but on thursday the carious said it was drastically cutting back its orders and will now only buy fourteen more aircraft emirates has instead decided to buy smaller planes . the double decker has been in service since two thousand and seven but sales of the costly aircraft have failed to meet initial targets it was designed to compete with u.s. rival boeing's seven four seven jumbo jet it can carry between five hundred and

eight hundred fifty passengers but airlines found they couldn't fill all seats on the a three eighty s. the cost of maintenance and operations also exceeded initial estimates. well. al-jazeera is economics editor and he joins us now live in our studio and that what's been behind this me of by emirates so let's look at some of the numbers behind here because that's where the real economics of this is and this is a reason why it all falls apart if you're buying a a three eighty it cost you four hundred fifty five million dollars that's a heck of a lot of money now if you're buying a seven for seven it's four hundred million but that's such a small difference in the huge in the airline industry but if you take a look at this now to fly a three eighty it costs twenty nine thousand dollars per hour to fly a seven three seven which is used by most low cost airlines it costs nearly three
10:03 am
thousand dollars an hour so you can see it's like a tenth of the cost and so airlines are looking at. the bottom line and saying you know how can we make the math work on this to fly it's a three eighty you have to have sixty to seventy percent of the plane fall at any given time otherwise you're going to be flying at a loss now it's been lost making for airbus as well and after spending fifteen billion dollars developing this plane this is one monumental a disaster for them in terms of their business model so they're getting rid of this particular plane it's got huge competition for more efficient planes one they build themselves which is the a three fifty which emirates will buy and the other is the boeing seven eight seven both are kind of composite plastic planes and so they're more efficient in terms of the amount of fuel they use but even at times when the fuel price was extremely low airlines were reluctant to invest in this particular
10:04 am
plane because they couldn't see the point because most of most airlines they like to fly point to point so if you want to fly from london to say. to milan you want to go directly there's no point in you going from london to say. katz or anywhere else and then fly him back so the whole idea is that the airlines want to use smaller planes which can help you to go from point to point and it makes it easier to fill them with passengers presumably and and cheaper to run absolutely and this has been a huge cost to airports as well because. heathrow airport spent four hundred fifty million pounds trying to build up the infrastructure from improving the runways from wide. taxiways so that basically they could use this plane ok thanks very much for that avid and i'm sure we'll be talking to you about this throughout the day thank you at least twenty seven members of iran's

interest with iran to reports from warsaw. representatives from sixty nations but almost no head of state the much anticipated u.s. led conference to promote peace and security in the middle east convened on wednesday evening in the polish capital warsaw with a little clarity as to what its in to achieve initially washington had said the conference was being organized to confront what it described as the iranian threat that didn't sit well with several european countries forcing president donald trump's administration to rename the meeting. despite this small yet well funded and reigning government's protest was held in warsaw addressed by one of america's most ardent pro israel politicians former new york mayor rudy giuliani who i believe there has to be complete change and i had a change of regime there has to be a democratic regime that respects human rights that is for

a non-nuclear iran that for a peaceful around then we can solve the problem the middle east the absence of world leaders and the trumpet ministrations perceived pro israeli bias when it comes to dealing with the middle east is proof the iranians say that the meeting will fail on the course of war so conference i believe it's dead on arrival or dead before arrival i don't think it would do any think it's another attempt by the united states to pursue an obsession with iran that is not well founded and i think the fact that they did not even aiming to produce any agreed text rather they're just tempting to make a statement by themselves on behalf of everybody in the case to you they don't even believe it's a serious affair palestinian leaders to have been critical of the meeting urging federal arab nations to downgrade their representation at the conference they remain angered at the u.s. his decision to move its embassy to jerusalem and are questioning its ability to act as a mediator for peace secretary of state pompei or has said participants will also

focus on discussing the wars in yemen and syria and combating groups like i saw. but when it comes to those conflicts truth there is a lack of diversity in representation with russia and the forty's for example not attending for all the higher expectations held by the us for the warsaw summits knows just as much cynicism being expressed by countries who continue to nuances role in the middle east and the stabilizing rather than positive now the trumpet ministration will point to the fact that the israeli prime minister will be meeting with representatives of arab regimes in public but that will have little impact on the daily reality of the millions of arabs who continue to live there under illegal occupation or trying to survive and destruction. works or. the u.s. house of representatives has passed a resolution to end american military involvement in the saudi m.r.c. led war in yemen the measure now faces

10:10 am
in fact as one republican noted democrats didn't seem concerned when the previous president began helping the bombardment of a country that would have been nice if our friends were equally concerned with president obama actually was committing us the kinds of activities we're talking about but things have changed and if anything anger has grown on capitol hill for several reasons the white house's refusal to meet a congressional deadline to definitively conclude whether crown prince mohammed bin salman was responsible for the killing a new york times report that revealed u.s. intelligence had intercepted a phone call in which the crown prince threatened to put a bullet into the journalist reports that despite having been officially fired as a result of his role in the killing of south alcatel he remains a close aide of the crown prince and the report that u.s. weapons supplied to saudi arabia have ended up in the hands of al qaeda fighters in yemen but it was seen as a split between conservative and progressive democrats the republicans did manage

to get bipartisan support for an amendment to the bill allowing the president to continue what it calls appropriate information sharing with the saudis last year a similar resolution was passed in the republican controlled senate an unprecedented assertion of congressional authority limiting the powers of a president to make war under the war powers act the resolution sponsors are hopeful it will pass again in the senate however without a two thirds majority from both chambers of congress president trump can and has indicated he will veto the bill the first veto of his term and the administration maintains it is acting appropriately america's not caring for america taken more action in response to the tragic murder of jamal khashoggi i will continue to take more action but if the white house had hoped that opposition to saudi arabia would dissipate in washington in twenty nineteen they've been disappointed she had her town see al-jazeera washington. weather is next but lots more still ahead on al-jazeera. tomatoes onions eggplant almost every sort of legible is

10:17 am
there's a confidence crisis people don't trust government people would obvious they don't expect so lucian's from government they don't even believe in what they saying and maybe that's why they don't then it's because for eight days now because they are free they don't know what to say to reconvenes to know what to say to really make people believe. tensions remain high across the city demonstrators preparing for more clashes with police have set up street barricades all over town some taking advantage of the chaos have looted shops and grocery stores in the center of town. there have also been attacks on the presidential palace most recently an angry crowd attempted to block road access to the airport. ongoing anti-government protests have brought port au prince to a standstill schools are closed supermarkets are closed government services have been halted the economic impact of the political crisis over the last week alone

president donald trump says madeira is making a terrible mistake by not allowing us in he insists all options are on the table to force the venezuelan president to step down you see a new man reports from caracas. opposition leader. confident that nothing will stop him from bringing food and medical aid into than israel on for every twenty third from across the colombian and brazilian borders. but president nicolas maduro vols to use the army to block it calling the main the usaid an imperialist trojan horse. so what is plan b. in israel's army remains loyal to mother little. one suggestion from opposition coalition leader. is to accuse me of little of crimes against humanity if he blocks the aids passage when there is a genocide or crimes against humanity the world cannot stay in the front when we are asking is. peace
10:20 am
a peace mission that helps these. be the lever to those who are mostly need she wouldn't say whether that meant using military force but on wednesday u.s. president donald trump refused to rule it out when he met colombian president even a key ally and staunch opponent of mughal i just want to thank the president for working with us and we're working together our militaries are very focused on working together. let's see how it all turns out. mother of a strong man near the colombia border says that business is ready to defend itself from what he believes is the likeliest threat military aggression from colombia freddie but not argues colombia's leader is taking orders from his mentor former president. a sworn enemy of my little. already bases colombia doesn't need the americans to invade venezuela because the colombian armed forces are ready to do it
10:21 am
all they need is logistical support from the us. why the law insists he wants to avoid a military conflict but he's hoping the threat of one might convince venezuela's military to turn on this as more calls for dialogue appear to fall on deaf ears the clock is ticking and there are absolutely no signs of a compromise on either side and significantly for the first time the opposition appears to be united in that the only thing it's willing to discuss with president my google is the time and manner of his departure. and that something model insists is not negotiable as the high stakes power struggle as collates. see in human i'll just see us well the democratic chairman of the u.s. house foreign affairs committee has ruled out military intervention in venezuela i do worry about the president's saber rattling his hands that the u.s.
10:22 am
military intervention remains an option i want to make clear to our witnesses in to everyone else watching us military intervention is not an option congress decides when we are in how the u.s. military is used around the world and congress would not support military intervention in venezuela venezuela's neighbors feel the same way the u.s. treasury secretary is in china to try and end a trade war between the world's two largest economies stephen minute and u.s. negotiators are hard to reach an agreement on tariffs before a deadline and launch without a deal u.s. taxes on chinese goods will rise to twenty five percent adrian brown has more from beijing. well it may be valentine's day but there's not much love lost between trade negotiators from china and the united states the u.s. treasury secretary steve minucci left his hotel in beijing on thursday morning saying he was looking forward to these talks but he wouldn't elaborate for these
10:23 am
talks to succeed though there has to be some goodwill on both sides both sides are trying to reach a framework of a deal that they can put to president xi jinping and president donald trump for them to sign but there are a number of sticking points for the united states it's the issue of verification making sure that china sticks to its word on what is agreed here in beijing i understand that the two sides are discussing a mechanism whereby tariffs would be automatically raised if china didn't keep to its side of the bargain now of course the united states has other complaints it believes that the way china does business is unfair many of its trade practices it wants reformed in particular the vast subsidies that the government gives to domestic companies here in china and of course there's also the issue of companies here in the united states who enter into joint venture arrangements with chinese
10:24 am
partners being forced to hand over their intellectual property their know how as a condition for doing business here in china but these are big complex issues and it's doubtful that they can be resolved between now and early march so i think what you're likely to see here in beijing a best is a partial superficial deal on the issue of tariffs and the two sides would have to continue negotiations on those other outstanding issues. a u.s. judge has ruled donald trump's former campaign chief violated his plea deal by lying to investigators this means prosecutors will no longer be bound by an agreement to recommend a light sentence for paul metaphors the judge found that he made false statements on three occasions not a fourth was questioned in connection with an investigation into alleged russian meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election a prominent philippine journalist has been freed on bail after she was arrested on libel charges maria ressa heads the news website rappler which is known for
