Well, this just came out this morning and there's reference to the A380 made, which makes me believe that Mr. Walsh is considering in fact ordering the giant. Please follow the link and let's start speculating:

"BA says it has sent a request for proposals (RFPs) to Airbus and Boeing and is considering the European manufacturer's A330, A350 and A380 aircraft, and Boeing's 787, 777 and 747-8 aircraft. It has also sent RFPs to engine manufacturers Engine Alliance, General Electric and Rolls-Royce, together with other key component suppliers.

"Walsh earlier this year confirmed BA had secured delivery slots on ten Boeing 777s from the end of 2008, though stressing the aircraft had not been ordered.

A spokeswoman for the carrier says delivery timings depend on which aircraft it selects, but the earliest entry into service of new long-haul aircraft would be in late 2008.


Wow, this is going to be fun to watch!!

If BA is expecting the new aircraft to be delivered by late 2008, only the 777 and A330 would be in the running for the first round of orders.

I hope they go for 787/777 and A380! Either way all the a/c are excellent!
