8:10 pm
might have struggled to survive yet series of may shows no sign of changing course nor any sign of course of stepping down in addition to that it's also a signal to the european union that the prime minister doesn't have the sustainable majority mandate for change that she claimed to have so you know why should they give her what she wants anyway but on top of all of that it's the latest episode in a sort of long running mystery tragedy some say fos in which to resume a once again is rebuffed not just by her own parliament but likely to be rebuffed by the european union as well it's a plot that gets darker and dense in which more and more suspects emerge all the time just this morning a government minister insisted that the u.k. would never be allowed to leave with no deal or a senior conservative party m.p. the leader of the commons andrew led to by contrast said no deal had to remain on

8:12 pm
from washington d.c. i actually think it's bad politics as president trump ended one showdown with congress he set off another the yeas are eighty three nays are sixty ending the threat of another government shutdown the senate and house of representatives passed a spending bill that does not include the five point seven billion dollars president trump wanted for a border wall with mexico but as the president signaled he would sign that measure the white house said trump will also declare a national emergency on the border giving him access to contingency funds that congress has already approved he will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time and i've indicated to him that i'm going to prepare to support the national emergency declaration democratic leaders immediately promise to challenge president trump couldn't convince mexico he couldn't convince the american people he couldn't convince their elected
8:13 pm
representatives to pay for his ineffective and expensive wall so now he's trying an end run around congress in a desperate attempt to put taxpayers on the hook for it make no mistake. congress will defend our constitutional authorities in every way that we can democrats say it's hard to argue that illegal immigration is a crisis when border arrests are at a forty year low we will review our options we have to respond appropriately to it i know the republicans have some an ease about it no matter what they say because if the president can to clear an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency and in the illusion that he wants to convey just think of what a president with different values can present to the american people democrats and even some republicans warn the president is setting a dangerous precedent opening the door for future presidents to achieve
8:14 pm
unilaterally what they could not get out of congress a future democratic president they say could one day declare global warming or gun violence to be national emergencies the democrats who control the house have already signaled they will vote on a bill to block emergency funding for a border wall but in the republican controlled senate that measure is unlikely to pass if trump can overcome a certain court challenge that would give him the chance to fulfill his promise to funded two thousand mile wall if not the promise that mexico would pay for it john hendren. washington. china's president xi jinping has met members of a u.s. trade delegation as part of efforts to end a trade war between the world's two largest economies u.s. treasury secretary steve michonne is in beijing to try to work out an agreement on tariffs the two sides are trying to reach a deal before march the first when the u.s. plans to increase levies on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese exports

shutdown. two men have been sentenced to. death in to death in myanmar for the murder of a prominent lawyer and a close advisor to the country's head of government. next up inside story do stay with us. the end of the super jumbo dream airbus is killing off production of the a three eighty in two years' time but as the demise of the world's biggest passenger plane tell us about the aviation industry this is inside story.
8:22 pm
now and welcome to the program i'm elizabeth purana passengers and pilots. and accountants dread paying the super sized which is why the a three eighty is having its ones clipped permanently pulling the plug on the world's largest passenger plane after its because customer emirates airline canceled dozens of deliveries when it first took off fourteen years ago a bus hoped what it called its giant cruise line in the sky would fly long into the twenty first century but twenty twenty one that's the date set for the final double decker to roll off the production line in southern france thousands of jobs are threatening the european aerospace industry as the top explains from h.q. and to news. well that bus bosses here in to do say that this is a very disappointing and painful moment for them they have announced the end all of
8:23 pm
the a three eighty jet they say will end its production in twenty twenty one now this is a plane that's called the super jumbo by aviation finance it is the world's biggest passenger jessica carrying more than five hundred and forty people is a double decker a feat of engineering but over the years it has been plagued by delays and delivery rising costs and forwarding orders the final blow though was the fact that the divide based airline emirates decided to reduce one of its orders by thirty nine planes not simply meant that the a three eighty could not survive i think what we're seeing here is the end of a large four engine aircraft and that is what it is i mean there's been speculation . for years whether we were ten years too early but three eighty three becomes clear where we were probably at least ten years too late or more but in retrospect it's it's all easy however let me stress one point jim and i hope your brief
8:24 pm
because i know many of you would love to fly on a three eighty we're talking about the end of the production of the free in twenty twenty one we're not talking about the end of the program obviously airbus will support these what is it two hundred twenty something aircraft that are in operation or where with many airlines or back in two thousand and five when the a three eighty was first in the works and lots of fanfare at the paris air show last bosses said then that they hoped that this plane would revolutionize long haul travel the idea was a big plane that would carry a maximum amount of passengers from hub to hub but i think it is the trend of a nation's actually being towards smaller planes more fuel efficient aircraft and that's something the air boss will now focus more on in terms of the impact on the company will process say. some three thousand five hundred positions of course the european play maker could be affected and they will be tools with unions and
8:25 pm
representatives to see what will happen to those jobs in the future we talked about look for insight story into those fronts. but let's bring in i guess now joining us from toulouse where is headquartered is aviation analyst alex the chair to us david lee amount is the consulting editor for flight global and he's joining us from london and andre switchman as managing director at the center for aviation competence at the university of st gallon in switzerland a very warm welcome to all of you mr i'm a chair so i'll start with you since you are into news that was that debuted with so much fanfare in two thousand and five why do you think the a three eighty failed . well the a three eighty perhaps kane a little too late this is a model of an aircraft that was able to get either black and us airlines which means we store a lot of seating capacity in terms of passenger accommodation but also be home so
8:26 pm
luxury a spouse class cabins or social areas and more but ultimately the production's hind is a craft actually tried to secure its place in the market airlines woke up and started its own manufacture out we want more efficient small aircraft as they worked out how our troops will pull me out similarly these aircraft like the a three fifty which more up and coming out they have six of the better markets and then the eighth grade c. and they are much younger and as a result the production has now come to an abrupt end and this amount we heard from airbus c.e.o. who said that you know it was ten years too late for the a three eighty and was suppose to revenue shinai as air traveler didn't find that the skies had moved on where the skies were always going to move on. airbus has done a great job with this airplane it's going to be with us for a very long time emirates will be operating these aircraft for at least another twenty years and maybe another for maybe another thirty years because they are
8:27 pm
excellent technically they're brilliant and passengers absolutely love them and they do carry an awful lot of people but the only of the only routes they're very good for is the world's great trunk routes now as it happens most of the world's a lot of the world's great trunk routes go straight through dubai so we're still going to see lots of a three eighty s operating out of big hubs but meanwhile the smaller airplanes have just as long range and they're more efficient so they can bypass the hubs and take people from their own local airports to exactly where they want to go as to what air bus says at the last. three eighty s will be delivered in twenty twenty one as a mistily amount has pointed out to saying it's rather a saying that they're going to be using the a three eighty two at least the twenty thirty s do you think that that is likely and how do they use it in
8:28 pm
a way that is economical. yes i think that's very likely i mean these planes that are the lead have been delivered just lately already delivered until twenty twenty one will probably be flying in the next twenty years even twenty five years. i also think that on the trunk routes very you have a lot of passengers on the on those big global transfer routes where the middle easterns especially are carrying passengers they will be able to to use those planes as in the past successfully. but the industry as a whole will move towards more flights to also secondary airports to have more point important direct connections mr much air as if the industry is moving towards more as we say point to point flights what does that mean for the dream you know so
8:29 pm
many airlines like emirates built the build the industry around being a hub. exactly the hub and spoke model is very popular especially in the middle east and you have to buy and who specialize in bringing passengers into that terminal to be able to pass through an exit within an hour or two predominantly on a three eighty s. actually but that happens spoke want to is a dying want to it's quite dated and with the introduction of these new aircraft ultimately there is no real needs to just stop even the airlines who are based in the gulf are waiting out it is just last week i was in the c.e.o. of that where is he it's going to be revealed that he will only keep the a three eighty s. until it's hang year mark and he told me after the ten year mark is replacing those with triple seven x. by boeing which he feels is a far more superior jet in terms of efficiency and economics which ultimately is the bottom line for every airline and slim and what does that mean then for air bus
8:30 pm
how damaging is this for the airline. well it's damaging it's frankly because the numbers of these are small even though the individual cost of each aircraft is large they're going to make a loss on on the on the project as a whole in that i reckon that is that being estimated about about five hundred million dollars they will never recover so it's a loss but airbus is just how it's published its. third quarter figures today and they are extremely good and what's more at the same time as the emirates announced that it was canceling the a three eighty s. it put in a massive order for a three thirty's and a three fifty s. so airbus is doing all right thank you very much it will survive this and mr went but what about the three thousand to three thousand five hundred workers workers
8:31 pm
involved in the a three eighty will they survive and their cross country is there not just until they're also in wales and they're in how birds are in bristol. and i think that everest will have to think about how to use the infrastructures they have built in the last decade for a forty year history eighty and as we see growth in the production of airplanes and growth in the market on growth for our airplanes like a three fifty s. and a tree thirty s. i think airbus needs to figure out how to reuse those infrastructures and also dose educated employees i think. will try to keep as many of those specialists for further growth of the company but you're never sure about whether all it can be the staying with the company of course and so much as you touched on this earlier on how specially those that you know whose home countries are
8:32 pm
a hub are going to manage the sort of changing trends and travel where people might not be likely to fly the super long hole or on you know jumbo jets like the a three eighty as much as most of point to point travel on smaller flights so again you know how do they go about navigating these these changes right now. well the airlines have been adapting to what is the current aviation climate in terms of the aircraft that they want ready an aircraft such as the airbus a three fifty of course manufactured here interludes in the south of france that a three fifty has already secured a lot of the market share that would have typically years go on to the a three eighty so that's how airlines prepare themselves that's haining killebrew objects like the well they take jets of the boeing competition not the triple seven x. which should end this this year because they're going to next year and automatically with that through that new deliveries and through that usually recycle of these more efficient jets they're able to improve their bottom line
8:33 pm
financials and they're over to look cannot smily the airlines that are still left with a three eighty s. plus the new wave of fifty's becoming increasingly frustrated with the fact that three fifties or superior in terms of efficiency and economics but you should still have the fact that that three eighty is very much luck and ultimately when you speak to the average astronaut about that flight and within a day to messages of passengers we tell me that allows for that three eighty lives in your cabin plus it's so the three eighty will still you know hold that significant place in at trial and it was do we around for many many years to come there is a reason ongoing this year now we ain't a creative deliveries everest was taken on the scene and japan's largest airline and i say there will be the first japanese islands to take this year so there is still a milestone has to come but ultimately for production it has always been a leap.
