Emirates' A380 Order

Tue Jul 10, 2001 1:25 am

Emirates claims that it is the launch customer of the still to be built Airbus A380. However, a recent check of Airbus orders does not show Emirates' order!!! I heard that there is a conflict between Emirates and France's Civil Aviation over landing rights in Paris- Emirates wants to fly daily to Paris but the French refused. Emirates hinted that this issue may affect its orders with Airbus, which the French government own part of. Has Emirates canceled it ordres for the A380?

Good Day!
