With the B787 now sporting 191 orders about six months before design freeze, I'm wondering how many orders the A380 had garnered before design freeze. Does anyone know?

Isn't A380's design frozen already? It will fly within a few months and start service within a year. 787 is still a 6-foot plastic model carved from a 1-gig catia drawing, maybe  Smile.

The A380 has been design frozen because 4 A380s have been built or are in production. The B787 design freeze will happen when the first goes on the production line, except for a few minor touch ups which might happen.

He wants to know how many orders Airbus had before the A380 design was frozen. See here: "I'm wondering how many orders the A380 had garnered..." It's pretty clear in his original post. I don't know the answer myself, but I'm sure someone here does.  Big grin

Hmmm. I didn't think the question was so difficult. Let's try an easier question. Does anyone know the date on which the A380 design was frozen?
