I saw on tv the head of airbus (Someone?) on the A380 show talking to Kingfisher owner Vijay Mallya who has ordered a number of the whale jets for his Kingfisher Airlines. And in that he has reported as offering to fly it to delhi.. any update on that?

Yes, Mallya has ordered 5 of the whale jets. Will they ever see the light of day? Who knows. Maybe as freighters to haul his beer across the world.

But Lufthansa stated that as soon as they got their A380s, they'd like to fly them to Delhi.
