According to ATI on Friday, Airbus has been trying very hard to save the order and was in negotiations with UPS all week long.
Its hard to know what to make of it. If UPS was / is on the verge of canceling their A380s, what concessions will Airbus give them to keep the deal. Or will they offer them any. I can only think of a good deal on A332F's presuming they are still intending to close the A300 line next year. However with demand for A330s at an all time high its questionable how far Airbus would go with a discount. Its also questionable if UPS will even want more planes like this with the order for more 767s. It will be interesting to see what happens with this one.
How many DC8s do UPS have? Are the new 767s intended as DC8 replacements? Are the A380s intended as a direct replacement for the 10 747s?
