LH About To Order A380?

Fri Mar 30, 2001 5:54 pm

According to several sources, LH's executive board decided to purchase 10 A380 plus signing 15 options.
Is this some fact or another rumor cruising around?

During the pilot´s strike on wednesday Mr. Weber, LH´s CEO, said he would probably cancel the order of 10 A380s if the pilots don´t recuce their pay increase phantasies!

Until Airbus and LH website says that LH have ordered the A380, it's still a romur. But I think that LH will go ahead with the A380 order. LH needs this plane and the only competitor, the 747X, seems not to be build. If LH ordered the 747X Boeing would have an order for the 747X but that isn't enough to get to production. I don't think LH will order 747X risking that there will be no production and maybe have to cancel the 747X orders and wait longer time before they get A380.
Just my thoughts.

Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
