They still have 10 options on the A330, what about the 777?
Quoting FCKC (Thread starter): 10 A350/787 + 10 options and 10 A380/747-8 + 10 options , for 2010 delivery.
A 2010 delivery could be tricky for the A350, but if they are going to order a very large aircraft, they might aswell go with the A380. Kingfisher opted for the A380. If they think, that they can make it work...

Quoting FCKC (Reply 1): No comments or news coming from India ???
IIRC they still have to improve the airports in India. In the long run India will buy a lot of airplanes, I think it is even more important than China, because the Chinese already have a lot of modern aircraft.
