I thank Sanfilippo et al. for their constructive comments to my editorial.1  They state that we have been searching for the holy grail in a single device in vain and that videolaryngoscopes seem far from being the ultimate solution. They suggest that we should regard a combinational use of a laryngoscope and a fiberoptic bronchoscope as a rescue technique, while we await the perfect intubation tool. I agree with their point that the combinational use of intubation devices may be useful, but I have to point out that there is no holy grail, and we cannot find a perfect intubation tool.
