Holy Sh*t, thats outrageous. No wonder, they think the 789 is too small for them. I see they secretly only want a fleet of A380s.

So, provided the romour is true (and I think EK is capable of anything...) would those be A389? EK has already stated their strong preference for a stretched version...

Haven't heard the exact numbers yet, but I can confirm from a very reliable source too Emirates is set to announce a substantial follow up order on their initial A380 order at the Paris Air show.

BTW, Airbus is going to turn the Paris Air show into a huge media event, not only because of the appearance of its A380, but also by announcing some stunning orders and I guess Emirates doubling their order would be a very good way to start with...

PS: why did you break the embargo on this, FCKC? The deal still needs to be signed and as I've said, it is meant to be part of a devastating Airbus PR campaign....

Boeing doesn't really try 'stealing the show' from Airbus. Sometimes it's more effective to reveal orders in the quiet periods before and after the show, when you're guaranteed attention from the media.

That's incredible news for airbus. Potentially 200 of these big boys sold if true.

People doubt the selling power of the A380 and sometimes, so do I. But you have to remember air travel is growing. I also think the economics of the A380 could encourage that growth to appeal to people who aren't so well off. Providing air travel to the masses, in a similar fashion the 747 did 35 years ago.

EK are very bold.

well, at least it might put an end to all those silly comments about a crisis at Airbus....for about 1 hour, after which somebody will have found a new enlightening article on Airbus and all will start again! Coming to think of it: I have never seen anything cause so much jealousy to Americans as Airbus.

Anyway, if all this stuff materialises, A. will once again have outsold B. in terms of toal number of seats sold (but maybe on less airframes) in 2005.

Another 40!!!! Holy crap, that is amazing and very good for Airbus. How is EK going to afford all of this? I know they have tons of oil money, but this seems a little excessive. Does EK do flights to SFO? I hope they do, b/c I would love to see an A380 at SFO.  Smile They will probably be getting discounts on them, but does anybody know how much this will cost EK?

EK wants to be careful they dont get too big for their boots! How on earth will they fill all those 380s? Surely there not going to use them on routes to these second and third-tier UK airports they are fond of serving. For a start the runway at the likes of BHX wouldnt handle them even if there were sufficient demand which there isnt.

Is the desert around Dubai filling up?

Wouldn't put it past them, but for the time being, WN has much higher market cap value. Heck, WN's cumulative 737 fleet (@ 136 seats per plane) might still be larger than EK's cumulative A388 fleet (@ 600 seats per plane)

One sure way to stop the silly remarks is not to generalize boeing fans as Americans. You are using Boeing and Americans as the same word which is not a fair perception. I love Boeing a/c but I want very much to see the A380 program to do well . To spite all of the folks that said it wouldn't make it.  optimist   Cool
