Apparently the delivery will take place by the end of the month (http://thailand-business-news.com/ne...r#.UEOjcKQVl5w). Anyway, it's very good news for Thai Airways. Singapore and Hong Kong its first destinations. Frankfurt to be served with a second A380.

Will British Airways receive their first A380 next year or is it going to be delayed ? I believe they're the only airline scheduled to receive an A380 on 2013.

Qatar has officially stated that it's delaying the delivery until the wing issues are permanently solved, currently they expect their 1st in January 2014.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/11/bu...ng-design.html


There's also a possibility that BA will also delay their 1st delivery because of this issue. At least they have talked with Airbus about it, delaying the delivery until the 3rd quarter of 2013. But there's no official confirmation that they will get actually get them later and it will still be 2013.

Airbus has also said that the wing issues will most likely result in a dip in deliveries in 2013, it will be below the 30 A380 that are scheduled to be delivered in 2012.

Today, MSN92, Singapore's 19th and last A380 ordered by the carrier has been delivered. SQ still has 6 options for additional A380's but not yet exercised.

This is the 15th delivered this year by Airbus and 82nd overall.

I'm afraid to break the news but I believe we have a new contender for the best looking livery going around on the A380!

Airshow: Airbus CEO warns A380 sales target tough to reach
10 September 2012

BERLIN (Reuters) - Airbus's chief executive said a sales target for the European planemaker's A380 superjumbo will be tough to reach after wing cracks put off prospective customers.

"We have a target of 30 aircraft but we probably will have some difficulty reaching it," Fabrice Bregier told journalists late on Monday, a day before the ILA Berlin Air Show opens.

Bregier's comments echoed earlier remarks by parent EADS's CEO Tom Enders and Airbus sales chief John Leahy.

Nonetheless, he voiced optimism that the A380 will continue to attract interest from airlines following the appearance of hairline cracks in the wings of some A380s requiring inspections and fixes where the problem was found.

"I expect that we can get new customers for the A380," Bregier said. "I also think some of our existing customers will come up with additional orders. I don't think that the 747-8 will be a huge competitor (for the A380)."

EADS plans to deliver 30 of the jets to customers in 2012, but has also called this target into question on reluctance among some customers to take aircraft with an interim wing repair that it has devised until a definitive solution becomes available in 2014.

Airbus sees great potential for A380 orders especially from China, which it sees exceeding the United States in terms of potential orders by value over the next 20 years.

"China is not yet there, but it will be a huge market for the A380," Bregier said.

Bregier recently travelled to China with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to speak with customers there and drum up business amid a spat over the European Union's emissions trading scheme (ETS).

If the dispute is not resolved, Airbus will have to cut its production target for the A330 "pretty soon", Bregier said.

Airbus earlier this year warned that it could only increase production of the A330 to 11 a month in the second quarter of 2014 if opposition from China and others to the ETS did not derail aircraft orders.

China has threatened retaliation over plans to charge airlines through the European Union's emissions trading scheme, but Bregier said he was confident that a trade war could be avoided in the long run.

"People realize that a deadlock is not reasonable."

Earlier this year the news came out that BA might have deferred their 1st A380 delivery for some months, they have confirmed this with the announcement that the 1st one will be delivered in July 2013. So it not that much later then originally planned.

British Airways confirms first 787, A380 delivery dates

"The first three A380s will be delivered in July, September and November 2013."

Emirates signals further A380 service expansion
Press Release: Professional Public Relations (PPR) – 17 hours ago

Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, will boost its Dubai-Singapore route with the introduction of a permanent Airbus A380 service from December 1, the same day that it expands its A380 network to include Moscow.

And on October 2 an A380 will replace a Boeing 777-300ER on the airline’s Dubai-Melbourne-Auckland route, providing a double-daily superjumbo service through Auckland (the Dubai-Sydney-Auckland route is already served by an A380).

Emirates is the only airline flying the A380 to and from Auckland and provides seamless A380 service all the way from New Zealand to London, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Munich and Manchester.

The launch of A380 services between Dubai and Singapore confirms Changi Airport’s status as Emirates’ South East Asian hub with daily flights connecting through to Brisbane, Melbourne and Colombo and the strengthening of its vertically integrated business model via Emirates Group company dnata’s airport services, ground handling and catering operations.

"Emirates is currently operating a two week ad-hoc Airbus A380 service between Dubai and Singapore which has received extremely positive responses from our passengers. In light of this we have decided to bring our flagship aircraft to Singapore on a permanent basis," said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Far East and Australasia.

As the largest operator of the double-decker aircraft, Emirates’ fleet of 23 Airbus A380s currently serve Amsterdam, Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London Heathrow, Manchester, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Toronto and Tokyo from its Dubai hub.

Emirates’ A380s offer First and Business Class passengers the unique opportunity to socialise, relax and even do business in its onboard lounge. First Class passengers have the added luxury of two exquisitely designed onboard Shower Spas, offering them a revitalised and refreshed arrival at their destination.
