Quoting N14AZ (Reply 90):
I agree, if EK wouldn't be that strong I believe the same number of A380s would have been sold. Instead of EK's livery they would fly around in the colors of the main Asian carriers and the main European carriers. It's not that people decided to travel because EK has the A380.

No - but I believe that the 380 is the very cornerstone of the EK's business model.

Quoting HALtheAI (Reply 92):
So if the ME3 didn't exist, you believe that the EU3 + SQ + MH + TG + QF (KE and OZ aren't really impacted by the ME3) would've ordered more than the 162 A380s the ME3 have? In comparison, how many sold A380s would constitute a "larger success" for the program?

No doubt they would have got many more than they have - so rather than using 777s they would be using 380s. How many constitute a success? It is not possible to give an objective independent statement on that. However, it make sense to have a look in the original business case put forth when the development was decided. On this account it seems very much to be a success.

So the RR 'Advance' is a lame band aid solution is it? Airbus knows this or would have launched it already.

Can we learn how to select the text and hit the 'quote selected text' button? I really miss your replies quite often because of your approach.


Anyway, its not that the Advance is a band aid solution to RR, I am sure it will be great, it's a band aid to the A380. Just putting those engines on the aircraft won't fix the A380's problem.

Can anyone hazard a guess as to how much fuel burn could be reduced (approximately) with the RR Advance, improved wingtips and what those developments would cost Airbus? Not talking about redesigning the wing or stretching the aircraft.

OK, current orders take production at 1.7pm to less than 2022.

No chance of any further orders except for an NEO? Will SQ not replace any of their A380's that they retire? No minor additional orders from any existing users for whom the A380 works well? No new customers?

Would just a trickle of orders be enough to keep Airbus going? I do not think so.

Airlines have gone through a good period of growth and profitability. In the next several years we are likely to see growth dampen - it is just cyclical.

And I'm not sure how the twins are testimony to point to point flying when most of them still operate as hub and spoke. Then again, Emirates does operate the A380 - profitably - on comparatively short hops across the Tasman.

Only because the cost of the aircraft is not taken into consideration as it would be sitting on the ground otherwise, so they only need to cover variable costs, quite different to a carrier offering a dedicated service. EK are what is known in shipping as a wayport operator, the cost of capital is a sunk cost hence different cost structure. All the same they offer a very good product and I have used them, shame about the timing though...

If the 380's problem is that it is just too darn big,then no it won,t fix the problem.
If after 15 years of service it requires improved economics then the addition of BW,s and Advance engine will do the trick.
It will primarily be a replacement market for the CEO 380 and some 747's.If they can make a further 300 over the next 15 years then that is what they will do.Hardly exciting or spectacular but hey so what.

The whole world is less ambitious that EK when it comes to the A380!

IAG is examining the feasibility of allocating a small fleet of Airbus A380s to its Spanish division Iberia and possibly an aircraft with its recently acquired Irish arm Aer Lingus.

The main point is that IAG wants more A380 and is satisfied with them. Of course he would say that talking about used A380 is not a negotiation ploy regarding new A380 from Airbus, how could it be a ploy if he admits to it.

Iberia could use a A380 to MEX, heck maybe even MTY or rotate those 2 destinations...

Even if the A380 had half the fuel consumption, it would not sell because its a huge investment (fuel economy is just a fraction of the whole A380 equation), and airlines are afraid of spending a truckload of money on something they need to fill ALL THE TIME, to have a good business, they have preferred to play it safe and ordered twins.

I wondered what happened to the world where a lot of guys bet the farm on gut feelings.

The 747 eclipsed 400 orders in 1978- 8 years after EIS and 12 after program launch. With the A380 we are 8.5 years after EIS and almost 15.5 years after program launch. In fact by the start of 1978 there was an almost equal number of 747s delivered (315) as current A380 orders (319).

Very interesting; I always thought IB was a possibility, but EI is definitely a surprise to even be mentioned in this context by IAG.
Geerally, IAG seems quite happy with the aircraft, they've mentioned a few times now they'd like more. Airbus still seems to be tough on price negotiations, though, as Walsh keeps mentioning second hand market. A bit curious, considering BA still have seven or so options from their original order, and I would have thought that some kind of price guarantee was attached to those options.

The 787 program has delivered 350+ frames to date. As a result approx. 100 new routes have been started or announced between markets that never had non-stop service before. What do you think that's going to look like in another ten years when there will be 2,000 Dreamliners and maybe 1,000 A350's flying?

Rate of 1.7/month is confirmed in 2017, also confirms no gaps in 2017 production:

Quote:

Separately, Airbus has decided to reduce its A380 production rate to 1.7 aircraft per month in 2017. The new rate will become effective in November. The plan is in line with earlier comments by Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders, who said the airframer is working to maintain breakeven on the A380 program, even if production is moving closer to 20 aircraft per year. Airbus delivered 27 A380s in 2015 and is targeting a similar number this year. The airframer said it is “covered” as far as 2017 production is concerned, and still has time to fill open production slots in 2018.

So if that's 12 months per yer it's 20.4 frames/year but some have said that Airbus is on an 11 month per year production calendar due to holiday shutdowns.

Replacing A380s with A380s isn't exactly a big market. The A380neo isn't expected to be better vs the 77X than the A380ceo is vs the 77W and that earlier competition didn't exactly do well.

The A380 is not breaking even - it isn't losing money on every unit it is selling. That is a big difference.

The A380 cost $25 Billion to create...the 747 cost about 10% of that and it was 50 years ago. We are a decade plus away from the A380 every hoping to hit 400 deliveries.

Yes, and Star Wars IV only cost 10 mio USD, while the newest star wars had cost of 423 mio USD. Certainly, with todays view it can be debated whether the Money used on the A380 was well spent, however, not all of the Money spent on the A380 was A380 specific:

The costs for enlarging XFW are of great use for the A320 line, as well, so that some of the A380 space will be used for new A320 lines in the future.

A lot of the R&D for the A380 Systems are also useful for further Projects like the A350.

The A380 is breaking even on single frame production in 2016 and will break even in 2017. So the frames are not loosing money on each sold, like the 787 and 747-8 are still doing.

Qantas plans to keep thier A380 beyond 2020.
Apparently QF is very satisfied with A380s role in their fleet.

From Reuters:
SINGAPORE, April 28 (Reuters) - Australia's Qantas Airways Ltd QAN.AX plans to keep its Airbus Group AIR.PA long-haul A380 aircraft in service beyond 2020, when many will be around 10 years old, a senior executive said, even as it conducts talks with Airbus rival Boeing Co BA.N on the latter's next-generation B777X jets.

"The A380s do a great job on the markets that they operate," said Gareth Evans, head of the company's international business, speaking to Reuters in an interview on Thursday. Qantas currently operates a fleet of 12 of the jumbos.

"They are big units on big thick routes like Los Angeles and London, flying into slot-constrained airports," said Evans. "You want to have a fleet that is simple, but you need to have vehicles that do the right job for you."

I cannot get enough of the A380.

Flying East from London I will always try to book on A380s. Recently, it's either Qatar to Doha and a connection or BA.

I'm going to IAD soon and will fly BA A380. I plan to go to Chicago too within the next 3 months and I wish BA were flying the A380 there already.

It's not like there is anything wrong with a 777 or a 747 but the A380 is very comfortable.
