Airbus says it remains committed to its A380 freighter programme, despite the threat of cancellation from its only remaining customer UPS...
...Speaking to Flight during a flight on board the A380 yesterday, Airbus chief operating officer, customers John Leahy said: “UPS has to decide what it wants to do. I think they will come to a conclusion in the next couple of months. If they decide to cancel, that does not mean that we will cancel the programme...”
Additionally, Mr. Leahy remains hopeful FX will return to the program at a later point. IIRC, Mr. Clark of EK left this possibility open when he converted EK's freighter order to pax aircraft last May, but FX has had nothing to say along these lines since they announced their decision last fall.
