Gulf News features Emirates CEO Tim Clark's latest comments on the A380. Interesting statements - considering EK is said to be in negotiations with Boeing for a possible B748i order.

"Compensation is not our target, what we really seek is to give a chance for Airbus to deliver what they promised so that we can assess, because we need that aircraft,"

"What induces us to wait for the A380 is that we want it to be a top-rated aircraft, and two years is not a long time in this industry," he said.

45 A380´s, and how many 48I will they buy and how many routes are there to be with all these heavy´s??

I´ve heard they´re to buy more 330´s, the working horse of EK *so far*

Sounds like Emirates is firm in their stance that they won’t tolerate anything less than what was promised. I hope Airbus dots there ‘i’s and crosses their ‘t’s.  crossfingers

Isn't knowledge more than just the acquisition of information? Shouldn't the acquired information be correct?

Quoting Solnabo (Reply 1):

That would be a surprising move - and an alternative use for the A346 delivery slots.

Keesje beat ya to it here - Emirates Tim Clark On EK A380 Order.. (by Keesje Nov 7 2006 in Civil Aviation)

But as I noted in that thread, while EK's traffic continues to grow significantly (something like 20% a year), and certainly the A388 will be a welcome addition to the fleet to help carry that, they do seem to be doing fine with their current fleet of Boeing and Airbus widebodies and are able to get additional Boeing widebodies (773ERs) quickly enough. So it seems reasonable to me that while the A388 delays are annoying, they are not having a dramatically negative effect on EK's current financials.
