60 is the high number the Indian airlines should buy in 20 years to cope with the growth of the air transport in this country.
Only Kingfisher has commited to this plane , but talks with Air India are still alive , being delayed by the recent economical crisis.

To welcome all these giants India must have to modernise many of their airports first !

If 60 is planned for India , how many are planned for China ?

Will it be the end of its time for 380 by then?
If there is that much demand from BRIC countries in the next 20 years, I am sure Boeing will come up with something within 10 years and that will change everything for 380.

Quoting TK787 (Reply 1):

Personally I don't think that matters much.

Of course the prevailing logic on A-net always seems to be that once Airbus have delivered about 100 frames, that'll be pretty much it.

However, if forecasts like this prove to be correct, the proof will be that lots and lots of A380's will have been sold.
And unless there were lots and lots of A380's being sold, what incentive would there be for Boeing to "come up with something"?

My initial reaction was "they wish", but then I remembered, it's Bastille Day, so we have to give them a little latitude!

I am sure there will be A380s in India, but I'd be surprised if there were more than 20 in service, ten years from now. Remember that in over 30 years of flying 747s, their fleet was never huge - 12 or 14, tops; with the 77W now in the fleet, I can't see them needing any more than 4-6. 9W would probably take some - and lease them out to everyone and their grandmother, and KF - probably 5.

There is a big hole in Airbus's logic, because with EK being such a huge A380 operator, India is going to be one of their main target markets and with them sucking so much business out of the India-Europe/US markets, that's going to impact on Indian carriers' ability to justify large A380 fleets.
