That is 38% off today's list but may include interiors. Either way, a far cry from the the discounts suggested before.

Well, to be fair, EK deserves that discount. It's the only airline ordering more than 20 A380s and Airbus is getting far more profit from the 90 discounted EK A380s than any other airline ordering the 380. It's a simple business strategy.
