Automover News: Boeing has faced strong criticism from Qatar Airways, Emirates and now 8F delays spurred improvements in the 777. A Boeing emirate wants to achieve a better version of the 777 in the next six months and be ready to enter service in 2018, which very well – two years ago, called two-aisle airplanes will fly over greater distance goods and at least 10 percent less to operate.
The airline is Boeing’s largest 777 customers with around 100 of the aircraft in the fleet, and a further 40 still to come. Retirements are scheduled to start in 2017, so Clark is asking for a replacement that can carry 60 tons (54.4 metric tons) of payload from Los Angeles (US) to Dubai (UAE) – about 7,230 nautical miles (13,390 kilometers). The 777-300ER, which entered service in 2004, can carry roughly that same payload up to about 6,800 nautical miles.
They expressed concerns that the manufacturer will be unable to meet his deadlines, because more work is needed on propulsion amongst other items. Emirates SkyCargo recently transported a 36-tonne rudder part – the heaviest single item ever carried by the freight division. The rudder stock – 9.16 metres long and 1.05 metres wide – was required for urgent repairs to a vessel at Dubai Dry Docks. The part would normally be transported by sea, but shipping through air was required to reduce the cost of the ship being out of service.
In conjunction with Dubai-based charter broker Air Charter International it was transported on a 747-400F from Seoul (South Korea) to Dubai.

Automover News: Considering that Audi already offers the popular mid-size A6 sedan and full sized A8 sedan, one may wonder about the purpose of 2012 A7. Audi A7 fits as the emotional symptom between these two.
The 2012 Audi A7 has four doors and the back seat is well-sized, with plenty of leg room. Yet, because of its coupe-styled body, most people don’t notice the rear doors. The design is so deceptive that some people call it a coupe, others call it a sedan – Audi calls it a Sportback. Here is what causes the deception and the beauty. The long roof is like a movement from the front to the back, which meets the car’s boat tail at the rear. Shoulder line sinks far back. It begins at the front, takes its power from the engine and then sinks slightly to the rear. This combination creates a fresh-looking design, which has got the car a worldwide acclaim. The doors are frameless and the car has a very large cargo space, good for family events.
Last week Audi delivered the 2012 A7 3.0T to our Hickory headquarters in NC for a week-long review to Despite its luxurious price, we think it’s a great car not only for individuals, but also for family needs. We drove the new Audi A7 in Hickory, driving in one of the most beautiful roads in the country. One has to actually drive the car to appreciate all that it has to offer, but we will try to discuss some particular essentials in this review in lay man’s terms. Essentials, that particularly stood out and attracted our attention.

Automover News: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. Wednesday introduced a new variant of its Ghost model in India at a starting price of 30.5 million rupees ($620,865) to meet growing demand for its luxury sedans in Asia’s third-biggest auto market.
The company expects every third car it sells in India to be the new Ghost Extended Wheelbase, said Herfried Hasenoehrl, head of business development for India at Rolls-Royce.
The BMW AG unit has previously said it aims to sell more than 100 cars in India this year, up from the 80 it sold in 2010.
Mr. Hasenoehrl didn’t say how many units of the new model Rolls-Royce plans to sell in India. We are currently in the process of working on how we can and should expand this market. Growth in the number of billionaires in India has led to a spurt in demand for premium and luxury vehicles.
U.K-based Rolls-Royce sells luxury sedans from its two brands, Phantom and Ghost, in India. Its least expensive sedan sells for 27 million rupees in the Indian market.
