Airbus Doesn't List FedEx A380 Orders?

Sat Jul 27, 2002 7:26 am

I just downloaded the complete Airbus orders/deliveries list, and it shows:

10 Air France,
22 Emirates,
10 ILFC,
15 Lufthansa,
12 Qantas,
10 Singapore, and
6 Virgin Atlantic orders for the A380. So where are the FedEx units?
(Total of 85)

I can only assume the website data hasn't been updated for whatever reason-maybe Airbus's webmaster is down with the flu. The 10 FedEx aircraft ARE confirmed, according to all of the reports I've seen.

Airbus is sometimes very slow with the orders on their page. It takes forever until the order is up there, and it takes forever until it is removed if the order is cancelled.

They will hold off.

That way they can make one order look like 3 or four.

A big announcement when the intent to purchase is signed

Another one when the order is confirmed.

Another one when they put it on their website.

Makes for inflated numbers for the politicians that are bankrolling that company.

Airbus update the orders .xls file every first week of the next month. So you'll see the updated file containing all of July's orders and deliveries by the first week of August.

Yes, Airbus takes a while to update its orders website -- hence all the fuss about the BA A318s.
