I've just found this piece of information in the online edition of "Business Time", the largest Business newspaper from Singapore
Qantas looking 'very seriously' at Airbus A3XX
HONG KONG - Qantas Airways Ltd, Australia's biggest airline, is ""looking very seriously'' at Airbus Industrie's planned super-jumbo jet, an executive said on Tuesday, giving the European planemaker another likely customer as a May 26 decision on whether to sell the 550-seat plane approaches.
The expression of interest comes a week after Emirates Airlines announced plans to buy as many as 12 A3XXs and other airlines, including Singapore Airlines Ltd, have said they are likely to commit to the plane.
"The very fact that there are some launch customers who compete against us in our part of the world'' means ""that we will have to look at it very seriously,'' said Geoff Dixon, Qantas's deputy chief executive.
Airbus chief executive Noel Forgeard and commercial director John Leahy have said they believe interest in the A3XX will multiply as airlines see competitors signing up. That will drive them to consider similar purchases lest they get left behind in the contest to offer amenities such as conference centres, gyms and on-board shops, they say.
