More than a century later, in 2019, the actions of young environmental activist Greta Thunberg helped raise awareness of the Swedish term flygskam — translated as “flight shame” — to the rest of the world. Her decision to cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat, instead of going by plane, to attend a United Nations summit captured the world’s imagination.

Why Did Airbus Build The A330?

Article | February 28, 2020

The idea of building the Airbus A330 dates back to the mid-1970s when the European planemaker was looking to improve the A300. The concept for the A330 was to build a widebody aircraft that could compete with the Lockheed L-1011 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10.The program to build a successor to the A300 split into two branches: the A330 and the A340. By the 1980s, Airbus had developed a fly-by-wire system for the A320 family of jets that it wanted to incorporate into the larger planes. Airbus thought that, by doing this, it would give them the upper hand over Boeing when it came to cockpit commonality.
