Don't think the USA would use the A380 as Airforce One.......they would stick with Boeing!

Actually, vice versa!

US AF asked to buy 3 VIP A380 planes, and Airbus refused to sell.

I also like to note that alot of Airbus conponents are from Japan as well.
Actually Boeing consist of about 75-76% of JAL's and ANA fleet and in the future it looks like that number will only increased. Like I said before, Japanese/Indonesian airliners tend to favor buying Boeing. Garuda Indonesia for exampled ordered 70 Boeing planes but only ordered 3 airbuses while Indonesia's Lion Air ordered over 178 Boeing planes and 0 Airbuses.

Yes, both countries tend to favor Boeing aircraft but their reasons couldn't be more different.

Japan's heavy industries are heavily involved in the design, and for some, the manufacturing of Boeing aircraft like the 777 and 787 so it's only natural Japan favors Boeing aircraft. But like any decision-making in aircraft purchasing, Japanese airlines also do look at both Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Japan Airlines has before mentioned that it believes the A350 is a better replacement for its B777s. ANA was rumored to have almost purchased A380s.

But for Indonesia, it's more political. The EU has largely banned Indonesian carriers flying into Europe for much of the early 21st Century and I don't expect Indonesians would likely take that easily by buying EU-made planes.

SIA sticks to Airbus A380 deliveries despite crisis

SINGAPORE (AFP) – Singapore Airlines (SIA) has confirmed it will take delivery of five Airbus A380 super jumbos this year despite a 92 percent fall in fourth quarter net profit blamed on the global downturn.

"We want the planes to come in and to continue with our policy of fleet renewal," said company chief executive Chew Choon Seng.

"We are a long-term player here. Our strategies are long-term so the policy of operating a young, modern fleet is an ongoing one. It isn't one that you turn on or off according to the whims and fancies of the business cycle."

SIA said Thursday that its fourth quarter net profit dived 92 percent year on year to 41.9 million Singapore dollars (28.5 million US) as the global slump hit passenger and cargo demand.

The government would always "buy american" if it came to planes like Air Force One. Itll be a 747 still.

Emirates to launch A380 flights to Bangkok on June 1st

Wednesday 20 May 2009


Emirates hopes that more holidaymakers will be booking flights to Bangkok from Dubai following the Thai government's decision to withdraw tourist visa application fees until June 4th.

The airline will launch its A380 service to the Thai capital on June 1st, with the country's tourism officials hoping for increased numbers of Middle Eastern visitors.

Khalid bel Jaflah, Emirates' vice president of commercial operations, said that Bangkok is a "very popular" destination.

"The city is a magical oriental metropolis containing a splendid heritage of culture, art, and architecture that thrive amongst the new high-rise shopping and entertainment centres," he commented.

Passengers travelling on Emirates' new route will benefit from a lounge area featuring a bar with a wide selection of drinks.

The A380 aircraft consists of 399 economy class seats, 76 business class seats and 14 first class seats, with the upper deck designated for premium class passengers.

Emirates recently announced that it planned to introduce an additional 12 flights a week to key Middle Eastern destinations such as Kuwait, Amman, Damascus, Sanaa and Doha.

Emirates offer special fairs for A380

By The Nation May 20, 2009


Emirates is offering promotions for its Dubai-Bangkok route to mark the world's first Airbus A380 operation to Bangkok.


Until June 20, economy-class fare to Dubai is Bt11,155 while the business class fare at Bt27,645. For those travelling onward to the USA (New York, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles), the fares start from Bt36,830. The promotion is valid for travel by June 30. The special fares are available only to online booking at www.emirates.com/th.


Khalid Bardan, Emirates' Area Manager Thailand and Indochina, said "Dubai is a very popular destination for Thai business and leisure travellers. What better way to travel to this popular hotspot than on Emirates' new A380 which has received glowing reviews from global media and trade circles. I am confident our A380 celebratory offers will be enthusiastically welcomed by Thai travellers."

there is no point in buying one for the US carriers. 747 can go to every airport and not need a run way with special modifications.
