Recently I've flew with an A380 of Lufhtansa, from Frankfurt to Tokyo.
It has been one of my longest flight ever (12 hours!) but the airplane was so nice and confortable! So the time has passed fast on it!

A380 strife to cost Qantas $80m
14 January 2011
The Australian

RBS analysts have reduced their pre-tax profit outlook by 9.5pc

THE Qantas A380 engine drama is expected to wipe almost 10 per cent from the airline's pre-tax profit this financial year, a new analysis says.

The Royal Bank of Scotland estimates November's A380 engine explosion and its aftermath will this year cost the airline up to $80 million.

The figure does not include an estimated $70m to fix the damaged plane, but takes into account factors such as staff costs, spending on hotels and lost revenue.

While RBS believes Roll-Royce will be forced to cough up for at least three quarters of those losses, it does not see this happening until next financial year. As a result, it has reduced its 2010-11 pre-tax profit estimate by 9.5 per cent to $766m and increased the fiscal 2012 figure 5.1 per cent to $1.25 billion.

Qantas grounded its entire fleet of A380s after the explosion on November 4 near Singapore severely damaged on of its A380s.

It reintroduced some London flights later that month but was forced by operational restrictions to delay returning to Los Angeles until this coming Sunday.

RBS estimates leasing, staff, hotel and other costs stemming from the drama total $20m and calculates passenger revenue lost due to the grounding at $28.4m.

Other revenue losses, including a reduction in load factor and yields due to safety concerns, total $31.8m.

``While the majority of losses are expected to have occurred during November and December, we expect some impact in early 2011 as Qantas's network gets back to full strength,'' RBS analysts Mark Williams and Michael Newbold said in a note.

``Looking longer term, we believe that the issue is likely to have caused reputational damage which may result in lower load factors and yields but have not yet factored this into our forecasts.''

The profit downgrade saw the analysts reduce their price target from $3.09 to $3.06, but did not stop them from upgrading the recommendation on the stock from hold to buy.

They believed the worst of the adverse media coverage was behind Qantas and that its shares offered good value compared with the carrier's global peers.

``Longer term, we continue to believe competitive pressures remain a challenge for Qantas, and hence prefer Virgin Blue on a longer-term view, but we think it is difficult to ignore Qantas on six to 12-month view given it is trading at 1.0 P/B (share price to book value ratio),'' they said.

Qantas shares yesterday closed up 1c at $2.52.

Qantas Airways net profit

2005-06 ... $479.6m

06-07 ....... $672.6m

07-08 ....... $969m

08-09 ....... $117m

09-10 ....... $112m

Qantas resumes A380 flights to USA
By Tan Qiuyi | Posted: 16 January 2011 1723 hrs

SINGAPORE : Qantas has resumed its A380 service to USA, which was grounded last November after a mid-air engine blast.

QF93 left Melbourne at noon on Sunday.

The airline said the resumption of its Los Angeles-Australia route comes after extensive engineering analysis and consultation with Rolls-Royce, Airbus and the European and Australian regulators.

Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce said the airline is progressively re-introducing A380s to its network as engine inspection continues.

Qantas will operate 14 A380 services per week for the remainder of January, and frequency will steadily increase from February onwards.

Qantas grounded its fleet of six A380s for intensive safety checks more than two months ago after the mid-air engine blast which forced the Singapore-Australia flight to turn back to Singapore.

For CZ and KE both should be this year :

CHINA SOUTHERN TARGETS 30% OF ROUTES TO BE INT'L IN THREE YEARS
2 December 2010

BEIJING, Dec 2 Asia Pulse - China's largest airline firm by fleet-size China Southern Airlines aims to raise the proportion of international routes from the current 15 per cent to 30 per cent in three years, Hong Kong media reported.

Of China's three largest airlines, namely China Southern, Air China (SEHK:00753; SSE:601111), and China Eastern Airlines (NYSE:CEA; SEHK:00670; SSE:600115), China Southern boasts largest fleet size and highest passenger transport volume. It currently owns more than 400 aircraft and transported 66.28 million passengers in 2009.

However, China Southern's international flight routes only account for 13 per cent of all its flight routes, leaving it lagging behind Air China and China Eastern, which have 34 per cent and 26 per cent respectively. The high proportion of domestic flight business has affected the profitability of China Southern, as ticket prices are lower with shorter distances and maintenance costs are higher with more frequent take-offs and landings.

China Southern plans to bring in a total of eight Airbus A380 airplanes and Boeing 787 airplanes in the next year, which will all be put on flight routes to Europe, the US and Southeast Asian countries.


Korean opts for low-density A380
11 January 2011
Flight International

Carrier's superjumbos will have just 407 seats and an all-business upper deck that promises sense of 'exclusivity'

Korean Air is to configure its Airbus A380 superjumbos with just 407 seats, the lowest-density layout for the type of any carrier so far.

The airline has disclosed details of its seating arrangement for the twin-deck aircraft, which will include an all-business upper deck.

Korean Air says this deck will have 94 lie-flat sleeper seats, with 74in (188cm) pitch.

This will give business passengers a sense of "exclusivity", says passenger business division chief Walter Cho.

Travellers on the upper deck will be able to feel "like they're travelling in their own private jet", he adds.

On the lower deck there will be 12 first-class and 301 economy-class seats. It will retain the three-class layout, rather than introduce a premium-economy cabin on the type.

Korean Air is to put the aircraft into service in May 2011, initially on short-haul routes to Japan and eastern Asia.

These initial routes will be followed by longer A380 services to the USA and Europe in August. It has 10 of the type on order, and five will arrive by the end of 2012.

Cho says the aircraft's layout will have a level of comfort that will "provide us with a competitive edge".

Korean Air's Boeing 747s are fitted with 333-384 seats while the airline's Boeing 777-300s are listed by the carrier as having 291-342.

Before the revelation of its seating layout for the A380, Australia's Qantas had offered the lowest-density configuration at 450 seats, including a premium-economy cabin of 32 seats.

Four other carriers operate the A380, with both Emirates and Air France using differing seating layouts depending on the route. Air France's layout of 538 seats is the highest density in operation.

Indian Ocean-based carrier Air Austral, however, is plans to acquire the type with an all-economy seat plan for 840 passengers.

Korean Air to start A380 flights in June
18 January 2011
The Korea Herald

Korean Air said Monday it would take delivery of five Airbus A380 superjumbos this year, with the first flight scheduled for June.

The Korean flag carrier said the A380 service between Incheon International Airport and Tokyo’s Narita would start on the morning of June 1, with the plane departing for Hong Kong once it returns from Narita.

It said in a statement the service would be expanded to Bangkok in July once the second aircraft arrives. The third A380 would launch a service to New York from August, and the fourth A380 to Los Angeles in October.

“The introduction of the superjumbo aircraft is expected to increase the number of passengers from China, Japan and East Asia transferring to the U.S. and Europe, accelerating Incheon International Airport’s goal of becoming a global aviation hub,” it said.

The airline, which placed its first order for the double-decker Airbus planes in 2003, said five of the 10 A380s it has ordered would be delivered by the end of 2011 and the rest by 2014.

A380s can carry 525 passengers in a typical three-class configuration and more than 800 in a single-class lay out, according to Airbus. The plane, which Airbus says is more-fuel efficient than older jets, has a list price of $346 million, though airlines get discounts for multiple purchases.

Korea’s second biggest carrier Asiana Airlines announced Jan. 6 it would buy six A380s for use on routes to Europe and the United States.

The order is worth 2 trillion won ($1.78 billion) at list prices and deliveries will begin from April 2014. The airline said it was still to decide whether it will order engines from Rolls-Royce Group Plc or a Pratt & Whitney and General Electric Co. venture.

Asiana will use the double-decker planes on flights to the U.S. and Europe in a bid to lure business travelers from Korean Air. Skymark Airlines Inc., Japan’s biggest discount carrier, also in November said it plans to order as many as 15 A380s as demand for the plane withstands delivery disruptions following a mid-air engine explosion.

Asiana ordered 30 Airbus A350 planes, worth $7.2 billion at list prices, in 2008. The airline expects to take delivery of those aircraft from 2016. The deal also included options for 10 more. The carrier has 70 aircraft, including freighters, according to the company.

Airbus raises aircraft prices
18 January 2011

PARIS, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Airbusannounced an average 4.4 percent increasein its aircraft catalogue prices on Tuesday, citing high production investments and a weak dollar.

The move comes weeks after rival planemaker Boeing announced an average 5.2 percent price increase.

Airbus and Boeing, which both saw a sharp recovery in business last year, often sell planes at a discount to catalogue prices, but Airbus sales chief John Leahy said on Monday that both revenues and market pricing were improving.

Airbus had 52 percent of the world market in net orders and 52.5 percent in deliveries in 2010, according to data released on Monday.

Airbus is squeezed financially by a weak dollar because planes are sold in dollars and enter the EADS accounts in euros -- a currency in which it also has a high proportion of its production costs.

The overall price hike includes an 8.4 percent increase in the value of the Airbus A380, which brings the catalogue value of the world's largest airliner to $375 million.

Airbus said this reflected the plane's capacity to generate revenue for airlines, but the planemaker has also been struggling to bring down unbudgeted production costs in the past year.


Airbus also confirmed on Monday it was mulling a 10 percent hike in production of its best-selling A320s, on top of existing plans to raise output from 36 planes a month to 40.

A decision is due shortly on whether to boost production as high as 44 planes from 2012, senior executives said.

The plans, first reported by Reuters last November, echo rising demand as airlines recover more quickly than expected from recession. But they are also seen as an extra bulwark against a weak dollar alongside price hikes.

Industry sources say a majority of Airbus's variable costs on the single-aisle family production lines are in dollars, meaning higher output also helps to tame currency effects.

Airbus meanwhile received a potential boost on Tuesday when Boeing announced a further delay in first delivery of its 787 Dreamliner to the third quarter.

Delays in the futuristic, lightweight Boeing plane have boosted sales of Airbus A330s, a previous generation of mid-sized jets whose list price rises to $222 million.

Ok, so this is speculation at this time...

Quote:
Qatar Airways will order a “large number” of Airbus A380 airplanes, the carrier’s chief executive officer said on Tuesday.

According to newswire Bloomberg, Akbar Al Baker told reporters in Budapest that the orders are “imminent”.

Al Baker said that Qatar Airways plans to be one of the early recipients of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. He also said that the company plans to sell shares in the airline by 2012.

“We are going to get the 787s and we are going to be one of the early recipients,” Al Baker said. “We are accepting that there is a slight delay.”

In December last year, Al Baker warned that he may have no alternative but to cancel orders for the troubled Boeing 787 Dreamliner if there are further delays in its delivery.

The fast-growing airline has ordered 30 787s, plus 30 more as an option, although technical and labour problems with the ultra-modern part-composite aircraft has left the jet nearly three years behind its original schedule.

Doesn't mean jack. Airbus will lower the price to ridiculous lows to get orders.
