I'm not too sure about Air New Zealand, but Cathay Pacific certainly "looked", and then ordered A350-1000s instead.

I wouldn't say that the A380 is too big, but the Western world isn't doing well at all, economically speaking. Once Europe and the States get back on track, the A380 will regain its orders.

Airbus A380 routes

Posted on January 6, 2013 by Sébastien
Last update: May 1, 2013
Airbus’ A380 has earned its place as the airline industry’s new “queen of the skies”, with the first five years of service confirming this 21st century flagship jetliner’s passenger appeal and revenue-generating capabilities.
Since beginning commercial operations on 25 October 2007, the current total of 101 A380s in world airline fleets have accumulated more than 800,000 flight hours, performing more than 80,000 revenue flights. With over 153 flights conducted daily by A380s at 30 airports they serve around the world, the world fleet performs a takeoff or landing every five minutes. The A380 world fleet also carries more than a million passengers per month, with average daily utilization across the fleet above 13 flight hours per aircraft.
Airbus has delivered A380s to nine carriers so far:

The fleet of A380s performs 1,072 flights/week.
The list of top 20 airports in terms of A380 operations is led by:

30 airports are served for a total of 2,144 movements/week.
Current routes

Singapore Airlines

Emirates

Qantas

Air France

Lufthansa

Korean Air

China Southern

Malaysia Airlines

Thai Airways

British Airways

Virgin Atlantic has pushed back it's first delivery several times. They originally ordered the plane in 2001 to be delivered in 2006. At first the delays at Airbus side made the deliveries slip a couple of years. But then it went from 2008 to 2013, then to 2015 and now to 2017. And the 2017 date is with a big if... economy... full prices... etc. It probably depends if Delta can turn the airline around, but even then Delta's influence could mean that they won't see the need for the A380 anymore. But it's still possible that they will take delivery of their order at some point in time.


The only 100% dead order is the Kingfisher order, the banks with outstanding loans to the defunct airline are currently working on dissolving the airline completely trying to save as much of their loaned money. So the company that placed the order will simply not exist anymore in a couple of months. I wonder if the banks try to sell the order, if Airbus allows it of course. But most likely the order will just go down with the company, so no cancellation penalties have to be paid to Airbus.

All right. It's also confirmed on Airline Route. EK's service to Brisbane will be converted from B777-300ER to an A380 (489-seater), and the flight affected will be its DXB-BNE-AKL service. As a result, 3 of Emirates' services to AKL will be operated with A380s. Schedule from 1 October 2013 (BNE/AKL A380 service from 2 October 2013):

EK434 DXB1025 – 0605+1BNE0750+1 – 1415+1AKL 388 D
EK435 AKL1830 – 1915BNE2100 – 0520+1DXB 388 D

Airbus A380 Lacks Airline Customers for 2015

By Andrea Rothman - May 14, 2013 5:31 AM ET ..

Airbus SAS said it must step up efforts to market its flagship A380 as it still lacks buyers for some of the 30 double-decker planes it wants to build and deliver in 2015, the year the program is supposed to break even.

While Airbus still believes in the business rationale behind the superjumbo plane, the company needs to work harder to win more customers, Harald Wilhelm, the chief financial officer of Airbus and parent company European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co., told journalists today. Airbus reiterated that it expects to deliver 25 double deckers this year.

“There are still some slots to be booked from 2015 so this is a top priority for John and his team,” Wilhelm said, referring to John Leahy, the head of sales at the Toulouse, France-based planemaker. “Our view on the A380 is unchanged. This asset has its its place.”

Airbus brought in only four new orders for the A380 last yearcompared with a target of 30and the company hasn’t booked a purchase for the airliner this year, on a goal of 25 contracts. The company has cut back output plans as it works through changing the wing structure, eating into sales growth that EADS reiterated will be “modest” in 2013.

EADS rose as much as 84 cents, or 2 percent, to 42.04 euros in Paris, and traded at 41.85 euros as of 10:34 a.m. The company said earnings before interest, tax and one-time items in the first quarter rose to 741 million euros ($963 million), boosted by Airbus profit that more than doubled.

Cutting Output
Boeing Co. (BA) said last month it is cutting the production rate of its 747-8 model to 1.75 planes a month from two, citing dwindling demand. Wilhelm declined to say if Airbus is also considering adjustments. He didn’t say how many slots, or production positions, lack promised buyers, saying it’s “clearly in single digits” and that the company would make every effort to deliver profitable planes regardless of output.

Airbus starts cutting metal for planned A380 deliveries about two years before the plane is handed over, while it doesn’t need to know the buyer for cabin customization until about nine months before the transfer. A permanent fix for wing rib feet will be incorporated into planes handed over from 2014.

Wilhelm said the A380 typically wins more business toward the latter part of the year, and the aviation industry still has the Paris Air Show and the equivalent expo in Dubai ahead, where airlines tend to place large orders.

“They’ll need a good Paris Air Show, and certainly good announcements at Dubai to fill the gap,” said Yan Derocles, an analyst at Oddo Securities in Paris. “I think it’s critical to manage break-even on this program in 2015.”

Besides the A380, Airbus’s other challenge is getting its smaller A350 wide-body jet ready for flight. The first flyable A350 rolled out of the paint shop yesterday as engineers prepare for its maiden take-off, and Wilhelm said today he’s more confident of a first flight this summer.

Brisbane is another city added to the list. Way to go. I thought Qantas did daily runs with the A380 on the BNE-LAX?

Nope. That flight operates with a B744. QF does A380s on its MEL-LAX and SYD-LAX flights.

Anytime.

I truly hope this A380 will fly to the United States, at least to LAX, if not JFK or SFO...

The Thai A380 has the production number c/n 100, that's probably why the photographer thought this is the 100th built A380. The actual 100th A380 for Malaysia has production number c/n 114, Airbus actually skipped several of the earlier production slots, like for example the c/n 053 that was supposed to go to FedEx. Airbus doesn't reallocate their production numbers, so every time a frame is cancelled or the delivery is pushed back they will just go on with the next number.
