What CSA said:
The CSA published an announcement Friday saying it has never authorized the release of such information.
You can read into it that the information should not have been released and is correct, or that the information is incorrect and it was certainly not CZ
who has spread this incorrect information and has not given the authority to spread any information regarding compensations whatsoever.
More from the article,
"We will actively deal with and evaluate the issue," said the announcement, stressing that the delayed delivery will not have a serious impact on the company's business operation and financial results.
No serious impact on financial results and operation... Claiming US$250 million would be a bit much.
The original topic has been deleted, so I'll repeat what I wrote there.
does indeed has the right to claim US$250 million it is probably because they payed a price well above the average price being payed for an A380. Perhaps as close as 85% to 90% of the listprice.
only ordered their A380s in 2005 but was supposed to recieve them well before many other airlines who placed their orders well before CZ
did. This might have resulted in getting a less than average discount.
US$50 million for each aircraft would result in an additional 15% on top of the initial 10 to 15% discount. CZ
would nicely fit in with an industry average of around 30%.
Airbus would earn less on what could have been a very lucrative contract, but would still be able to make a nice sum of money (A380s are said to be produced at around 40% of the listprice, not sure if engines are included).
