Airbus SE is working with Emirates, the biggest buyer of its A380 double-decker airliner, on a follow-up deal, which would bring much-needed relief to a program that’s running out of orders as carriers pick smaller aircraft.
The two sides hope to come to terms of an accord by the time of the Dubai Air Show, which takes place later this month, Airbus and Emirates representatives said on Friday in Hamburg, where Emirates took delivery of its 100th A380.
Enders is saying A380 will be in production for the next decade. I wonder if that is just bluster, or if he has the data to support that claim? He's claiming there's other sales leads in the ME and Asia but that's all he says. I suppose if EK makes a big enough commitment to replace existing A380s and others replace some subset of their fleets it can limp along at its current rate for a decade, no?
