Current 380 s @ + 120 reducing to 100 including remaining orders., @40 being "parted out" . Remaining 100 around for some time as there is a market need . Think what you want but watch what reading happens .
I wonder if the A380/A350/A33neo deal has lasped because it's been almost six months with no deveelpmt.
With EK, not so odd, they have already cancelled or not firmed 70 A350, 39 A380, 40 781 and are talking with Boeing of the 77X ...
EK have always a lot on order and likes to "change their minds" sometimes. They are going to buy a lot from A & B but not always what they have chosen in the first place.
Some announcement may come at the next DUBAI AIRSHOW later this year. Like firming the A380 => A350/A330N (one or both ...or even something else ...) deal the same with 77X => less 77X or 787 or more 77X or a combo of thoses.
Replacing an A380 doesn't have to be with the next largest plane on the market. Qantas (2 787 = 1 A380) or AF (10 A380 => 9 A359 or A339 or 789) could tell you that. You have to consider what's best fits your needs.
What is happening now between EK and Boeing :
EY is trying to get out of the 777-X. EK finds the new A330N/A350/787 trio appealing. Boeing wants to keep EK on the 777-X track so they are going to have to make concession or EK can choose something else.
Same with Airbus, they have the opportunity to place 2 new types at EK and hurt the 777-X if they make concessions.
EK is negotiating with both sides to get better deals. But, since they have ordered a lot and the ME may not be in the best of shapes, they may not be as strong as they think in those negotiations.
