Only the engines need repainting to make it perfect

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

Copied from the Jumbo thread...

As much as Emirates is growing, they can't take delivery of 30 A380s every year.
However at Airbus's Global Investor Forum 2014 held in London between 10-11 December Farice Bregier reaasured investors*, that the program is right on track and despite Harald Wilhelm's (Airbus CFO) doubts they will get additional custumers, and even went so far to predicted "one day they will launch the A380neo and even the streched version"...

I'm kinda' skeptical though...

Opinion: ICF Sees A380neo Launch Likely In 2015

...the hunch is that the A380neo will move forward for several reasons...

...First, there’s the support of Emirates. Its corporate strategy and the prestige of the United Arab Emirates depend on the A380...

...Emirates has indicated it will take as many as 70 A380neos should Airbus move forward...

...a conservative 10% fuel efficiency gain works out to a fuel savings of about $4 million per aircraft per year. This isn’t a quick breakeven by any measure, but when combined with a maintenance holiday and new route opportunities, it appears reasonable that a major Emirates order could cover much of the program’s development expenses...

...The A380neo would also fit neatly into Rolls-Royce’s development plans. There are rumors that Rolls is exploring several options to power the NEO and possibly an A380 stretch...

...Then there is politics. Canceling the A380 program after just a decade of production would be a political catastrophe not only for Airbus, but also for Europe...

...Above all, the NEO would extend production at least into the mid-2020s and buy Airbus a precious commodity: time...

...Given the four to five years required to develop a NEO and its current production backlog of roughly four years, Airbus must act fast if it wants to keep A380 production intact later in this decade and assure customers that the program has a long-term future.

De-icing of B747 can take up to 30 minutes in bad conditions, so I guess for A380 it will be about the same.

Surely the NEO is the only way forward for Airbus. The alternative is what for the A380?

No other alternative... Airbus need to kick start the NEO & -900 program & wouldn't surprise me if carries such as CX would jump onboard...

I dont understand the a380 NEO ..... they should keep the plane the same size and just add the engines, new lighter modern material, and system upgrades and call it a day. The plane doesnt need to get bigger.... it needs to be more fuel efficient.

But Emirates wants it bigger and stretched .... which what other airline has the power or money to want that?

The current wings have been designed for the -900 series hence why Airbus will launch this version...
In addition to this Airbus will be offering a NEO version for existing carriers & potentially new ones...

No light at the end of the tunnel for the Skymark frames...
Only alternative for Airbus is count their losses & convert these frames to EK standards if new buyers aren't found...

LAX should bring all the airlines who fly their A380s in to LAX and do a photo op for publicity.

That is one costly publicity stunt.
