Bali and Mexico City seem to be under-served from UAE.

Bali was/is one of the destinations being pushed. This was before March 2011. I imagine for whatever reason, other destinations won out over Bali.

Airbus targets 30 A380 sales in 2012, dismisses 748I threat.

You got to love the guys at Airbus when it comes to marketing statements like this. Why do I already have a gut feeling this prediction is a sure bet when it comes to EK ???

Still waiting for DAA to release they're December DXB pax numbers.

I'm pretty sure DXB will take 4th place when it comes to international airport pax.

Also waiting to see better detail/information about the up coming C4 project.

I love this article, could be good for EK in the end because this guy is a real suck, and power has got to his head.

This issue needs to be resolved ASAP so all the new airframes coming out of Airbus will have the updated parts.

Whats really interesting is these cracks were discovered while fixing the Qantas 380 wings that had the engine explosion last year by chance. What if that never happend, would they of found this flaw in the end ?

I can see EK taking some of they're units out of service to fix the problem. Just the inspection takes about 24 hours, I wonder how long it will take to fix the problem then ? EK having the largest fleet, aswel as the largest backlog is most exposed.

This is a very sad and frightening development.... especially as they've been flying around for so long already!

well Airbus claims the cracks are on non-critical elements of the wing. obviously I'm not an engineer or anything, but a small crack on some superficial element like a fuel cap isn't nearly as serious as a crack that runs through a load-bearing section of the wing. my 2 fils.

It actually looks like there are two seperate cracks, in two seperate places of the wing. The second crack leads straight to what connects to the outer skin of the wing, which can be very serious. Like they said all cracks start small in the beggining, it's just very lucky that they were found in the first place.

This will turn out bigger than we think if Airbus can't find a solution soon.
