I searched but didn't find anything on this.
SIA state that the value of their current A380 contract is $8.6Bn USD.
That price covers 10 firm, 15 options, a spares clause, and the initial engines (but not spare engines).
That equates to $344m per frame over 25 aircraft. I only wish they could have broken it down a bit further so we could see what proportion was frames, spares + initial engines.
Sounds like a big number for a allegedly $150m/frame contract. Guess they're assuming there's no chance of 99% EIS reliability, and have ordered enough spares to build the planes again

Most sales are expressed in number of aircraft sold. The values of those sales, as publicly announced, are based on airframes, engines, maintenance, training, etc. being sold at list prices, just as Leelaw has indicated.
We know that in nearly every case, the actual cost versus value is significantly less.
