You seem to overlook the fact that the A380 is potentially a 40+ year project. I've no doubt the A380 was going to be built, with or without Emirates.

It's simply not their.
But it could be worse. They could be boeing with the 747-8i.
|Quoting American 767 (Thread starter):|
I doubt it. Because even tough AF, LH, SQ and QF were among the early customers to first show an interest for the A380 already in 2000 when the then project was still called A3XX, managers at Airbus would have thought it would not be profitable to build it. EK has ordered many more than any other airline, so imagine how many less orders Airbus would have received if EK said no.
