Re: Why did Lufthansa and Qantas hold out on the 77W?

Just my thought, at the time when every one else was ordering the 777s, Qantas was committed to the A380, and with the A330s they ordered they had their network covered. With the A380,330s, 767s at the time and of course the 747ers. QF's network was at that time and still today is covered well with ...

QF has no plans for additional A388’s, 8 options pushed out for at least 10 years.

Did Geoff Dixon get it very very wrong ordering this plane when it was just on the drawing board?
Did Alan Joyce have to take the A380 or could he have cancelled the order?
