So what route will those giant birds being deployed on? TPE-LAX? (the only one I see a capacity increase in the future...) or maybe the TPE-SHA (if there's going to be any...)

CI will put them on the TPE-HKG route and the TPE-JAPAN route I suppose...

WOW~ BR A380... unbelieveable!!

I think that should read A330, not A380...you'll see the 6 leases mentioned below (from Airbus.com)

EVA AIR TO BECOME NEW AIRBUS OPERATOR WITH A330 ORDER
19 March 2001

EVA Air of Taiwan is set to become a new operator of Airbus aircraft having firmed up commitments announced in January 2001 for the acquisition of eight A330-200 wide-body aircraft. "The contract with Airbus covers a firm order for two aircraft with a further six aircraft being acquired under a lease agreement with GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS)."

Deliveries of the aircraft will begin in early 2003 and continue through to 2005. The A330-200s, offering increased cabin comfort, cargo capacity and lower operating costs, will replace eight older generation 767s, currently in service on regional and medium-to-long range routes.

EVA Air has selected General Electric CF6-80E1A3 engines to power the twin-engine A330-200s.

Each of EVA Air’s 261-seat A330-200s will feature a two-class layout comprising 30 business class seats and 231 seats in economy class.

“Offering the highest levels of in-flight comfort, the A330-200 will enable EVA Air to continue to build on its reputation for world class service," said Tony Su, Executive Vice President, Corporate Planning Division, EVA Air. "In addition, the low operating costs of this ultra-modern aircraft will allow us to fully maximise our revenue-generating potential."

"Within a relatively short time, EVA Air has established a reputation as a world class airline," said Noël Forgeard, Airbus Chief Executive Officer. "We are confident that the A330-200 will play an important role in the continued development of the airline and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership between our two companies."

EVA Air’s selection of the A330-200 further underscores the success of the aircraft as the preferred choice of airlines worldwide in the 250-seat (three-class configuration) segment. The A330-200 combines some of the lowest operating costs of any aircraft ever designed with maximum flexibility over medium to long-haul routes.

This latest order from EVA Air reinforces the market leading position of the A330/A340 family, with 687 total orders from 58 customers today. The family has been especially successful in the Asia-Pacific, where it has been selected by 18 airlines, including almost every major international carrier in the region.

Airbus is jointly owned by BAE SYSTEMS with 20 per cent and by EADS with 80 per cent.

Oh dear! How embarrasing! Sorry! Well it's Yahoo's fault so they can stick their article up their hyperlink!

So it's A330s. Good for Eva Air.

I think the Yahoo thing isn't wrong - they didn't say BR has ordered A380s... in the article Airbus say it's likely that they would've by the time the first A380 is delivered.

I remember several months ago, before BR signed on the dotted line for the 777s, there was a news flash somewhere (udnnews.com??) that said they were involved in helping Airbus "define" the A380.

There's a presentation file at Airbus that keeps mentioning TPE as a big airport and features BR's logo alongside heavyweight carriers.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Heard from a friend of mine on A380 as well.

BR had intended to begin leasing dicussion on A380 at end of next month as the carrier begin preparation for possible link to mainland china. however, the plan is on hold due to recent tension between taiwan and china.

The A380 were going to be deployed on route to Japan, Shanghai, HKG, LAX, and SFO.

I checked the news 3 times. It is A380. the artical already mentioned EVA bought 2 A332 and will lease 8 more (which sould be 6).

From the artical:
...Leahy was in Taipei for the signing ceremony of EVA Air's purchase of two A330-200 jets and the lease of eight more from GE Capital Aviation Services. It is the Taiwanese carrier's first Airbus purchase in its 10-year history...

As a result, I don't think this report made a mistake.

Wow, it will be exciting to see A380 in EVA's colour.

CORRECT: Taiwan's EVA Leased Six, Not Eight Airbus Jets

TAIPEI (Dow Jones)--France's Airbus Industrie (F.ABI) expects to have sold to either or both of Taiwan's international commercial carriers the new A380 superjumbo jet by the time the first of these jets is delivered in 2006, John Leahy, senior vice president commercial of Airbus, said Monday.
"Taiwan definitely needs it," said Leahy, who said he will be "surprised" if EVA Airways (Q.EAW) or China Airlines (Q.CAI) doesn't order the planned A380, which will be able to seat as may as 800 passengers and become the biggest passenger jet in the skies.

Leahy was in Taipei for the signing ceremony of EVA Air's purchase of two A330-200 jets and the lease of eight more from GE Capital Aviation Services. It is the Taiwanese carrier's first Airbus purchase in its 10-year history.

Leahy said some airlines that have already placed orders for the A380, which is designed with current airport layouts in mind, intend to fly it into Taipei. The superjumbo will "work well for either" EVA Air or China Airlines, especially in a freighter capacity.

The orders announced today were for the A330, not the A380! All he is saying is that Airbus wants either China Airlines or Eva Air to order the A380 by 2006/2007.
