Pushing the boundaries of science usually has it's pitfalls.
Good news for Airbus and EADS.

This is usually always associated with a new technological toy. Not really anything that any of it's predecessors had to go through before it. Although, there weren't nearly as many hiccups when bouncing to the 757, 767, 777 etc....since they all essentially carried the same concept in theory. This plane, while similar somewhat in looks is the equivelent to the F-22 next to the F-16. Sure....they're both fighters...but. Well, you get it.
