PARIS AIR SHOW Airbus says will announce new A380 order during air show
06.13.2005, 09:08 AM

PARIS (AFX) - Airbus SAS vice-president Philippe Delmas said the plane maker will announce a new order for its A380 double-decker 'superjumbo' at the Le Bourget air show.

Asked whether Airbus would be announcing a new A380 order this week, Delmas replied: 'One can expect that.'

Airbus will hold a press conference tomorrow morning.

The company has so far received 154 orders for the A380, of which 144 are firm deals. Breakeven on the project has been put as high as 300 planes should the dollar remain weak.

Airbus is owned 80 pct by the European Aeronautic Space and Defence Co (EADS) and 20 pct by BAE Systems PLC.

CX would be my opinion, or, maybe a follow on order from an existing customer?

My prediction is Air China. Cathay is possible too, but it'll be a cold day in hell before JAL buys A380, or anything from Airbus for that matter...

CX's order won't be so soon, if they ever get the A 380.

Has Air China ordered any A 380s so far?

Quoting Keesje (Thread starter):

The company has so far received 154 orders for the A380, of which 144 are firm deals. Breakeven on the project has been put as high as 300 planes should the dollar remain weak.

Even Airbus co-chairs are now saying that the breakeven is "considerably higher" then 300 frames.

There have been rumours floating around for quite some time about EK ordering the stretched A380-900. However, it still amazes me how EK would utilize so much A380, they already have 43 on order which IMO already is a lot. In anyway I wish Airbus good luck  Smile

Baring in mind it says new customer. Which rules out QF and AF.

I reckon it's CA.

It's possible that Airbus may have finally snagged CX to do a long-term lease through ILFC for the A380-800. Maybe Airbus has given assurances that the A388 can fly nonstop from LAX to HKG at the standard MTOW for the plane with the Trent 870 engines?

Don't forget about the pending announcement for the "private A380". When it hit the presses a couple weeks back, it wasn't an official announcement. That's my guess.

I'lls say a joint KL/AF order, AF has ordered already, but they will order more. KL can use a few to for example Surinam, and the Dutch Antilles.

Lets take a look at this. In all likely hood it is an existing customer that already has the 340/330 family of aircraft. So that really rules out BA. What about LH, are they already a customer.

Wild guess here: SA

Fairly wild, yes - but not completely out there. SAA could use maybe 4 aircraft for the LHR-JNB routes, more if they add CPT as well. The routes do very well, and are very departure-time sensitive (ie. flights always have to go at night, in both directions), so the only way to sensibly increase capacity on the route is bigger aircraft.
