Etihad Wants Airbus Discounts
Aviation Daily
06/13/2007, page 12

Jens Flottau

Etihad Airways appears to prefer discounts on future orders over cash compensation for the delay in the Airbus A380 deliveries.

"We are looking at the benefits on future orders," CEO James Hogan told Bloomberg News, a statement that implies Etihad will go with Airbus in its next expansion phase. The airline placed orders for four A380s, the first of which is due to arrive in 2009. But Hogan wants to push back the delivery date, saying the airline has to mature first before it can absorb the additional capacity (DAILY, May 11). -JF


Looks like Airbus will get some additional sales from Etihad. Potential good news for the program.

So Etihad wants compensation discounts for the delay, yet at the same time they are going to push back the delivery date because they do not want them yet? Sounds like a win-win situation for Etihad.  scratchchin  Cheaper aircraft on their own schedule.

Maybe Airbus will meet them halfway.....discounts OR push back delivery dates?

On the other hand,later delivery dates would be in favor for Airbus??

A win for Airbus, too. Better to give a discount than to shell out cash.

But, another A380 operator delaying EIS?

Not in this case mate as EY is expected to take 4 of the 6 test aircraft.

well everybody wants discounts, but if Ethiad is who wants to push back the delivery date is not an airbus problem, so the discount are not justified IMO of course.

Ethiad is in a very difficult position due to emirates, they need a miracle or a very clever management to keep going.

IMO again b-787-8 is a better option for Ethiad,

Perhaps, but now that they can get discounts then the A350XWB seems to be a logical choice over the B787.. Besides, there may not be any convenient slots for Etihad at Boeing right now, unless they ramp up production of the 787. The line is still far shorter for the 350, even if it is to EIS much later than the 787.
