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  Wink

Perhaps the contract value is calculated based on list prices?

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.

Except that this wasn't a "valued at" or "at list prices" statement, which usually accompanies such assumptions.

I sincerely doubt that SQ would reveal the true price that they've paid. Most likely, this is the list price.

What was the exact wording of the statement, and where did you see it?

Seems like they are saying it is just that (based on what you said)... valued at $8.6 Bn, not that they paid that much.
