And if the assembly line is working full pelt, why are some airlines (eg AF, EK) having to wait so long inbetween deliveries? Thanks!

Because it is a very complex product with no margin for error. The reasons for the delay of the A380 were difficulties with electric wiring because Airbus France and Airbus Germany used different design software which let to different measurements. This year we should see an increase in production speed.
