Obviously Airbus does want orders for 50 to launch, but they rather have several customers instead of just 1. Having 5 launch customers for 10 planes each is a much stronger start then having just 1 customer and is of course more realistic. Obviously Airbus will not pass on 50 aircraft order if a customer wants that, but they are not going to make the launch dependent on such an order.
So people expect Airbus to get 50 commitments or more from one or more customer(s) before launching the A350.
That's very interesting.
Which airlines or cargo operator would-be interested beyond Qatar?
