The A380 structure incorporates a range of new materials, including a new material, Glare, which is highly resistant to fatigue.

Because that is how accounting works. When you evaluate whether the program was an economic success you don't include sales of a totally different aircraft, just because they share similar components. Whether the A350 was a best-seller or remained a figment of someone's imagination should have no bearing on whether the A380 program ultimately made money for Airbus.

Turkish Airlines in talks for around 10 Airbus A380 jetliners

[IMG]http://oi61.************/2mctu2w.jpg[/IMG]

Jan 26 (Reuters) - Turkish Airlines is in negotiations to obtain 10 or more Airbus A380 jets in a deal potentially worth $4 billion based on a direct purchase at catalogue prices, two people familiar with the matter said.

A deal, if finalised, would be the first airline order for the double-decker jet since Dubai's Emirates boosted its order at the Dubai Airshow in November 2013, but the people cautioned there have been false alarms about a Turkish order in the past.

Sales of the world's largest airliner have gone through a lean patch amid a slowing economy and indirect competition from Boeing's largest twinjet, the 777X, which is planned to seat 406 people compared with the A380's standard layout of 535.

Turkish Airlines and Airbus declined to comment. (Reporting by Tim Hepher and Ceyda Caglayan; Editing by James Regan)

Turkish is one of the few airlines that haven't straight out denied being interested in the A380 and for which it would actually make economical sense to order it.

But because the talk about a possible A380 order has been going on for ages now it still remains to be seen if they will actually place an order right now. Waiting might have been a very good option. Airbus does need to fill up the delivery slots for 2017 and beyond. I could see TK getting a very good deal here.

Turkish Airlines will make orders for wide body planes this year.

A380 / B747-8 I versus B777X
A350 / A330neo versus B787

It depends whether you're doing program accounting, or frame based accounting.
R&D spent for A380 has been written off on Airbus accounts long ago, so the A380 has nothing to repay anymore...

As to whether a program makes money or not, sure it's important for financiers, but that's a narrow vision!
A program does not only provide money, but also technologies, know-how, brand image, market positionning,... all of which are invaluable and necessary for the future of the company which financiers tend to forget... (agreed, money is also very important, but its not the one and only important thing!).

Regarding TK potential order, I think 777X would be too late for TK, so it's between the whale and the queen on this one (A380 vs B748).

Emirates Announces Two New A380 Destinations in Europe: Dusseldorf and Madrid

DUBAI, U.A.E., 28th January 2015: Emirates, a global connector of people, places and economies, announced today the launch of A380 services to two European destinations: Dusseldorf and Madrid. For both cities, Emirates will be the first airline to operate a scheduled A380 service, offering an unmatched travel experience to business and leisure travellers alike.

The addition of Dusseldorf and Madrid to the list brings the total number of European gateways served by Emirates’ A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft, to 13. Emirates currently has 57 A380s in its fleet, flying to 34 destinations globally and wowing customers everywhere it flies with its industry-leading onboard features.

“As the world’s largest operator of the A380, Emirates is proud to further expand the number of destinations served by this incredible aircraft. It offers passengers in all three classes a superior travel experience thanks to unique features like: the world’s only Shower Spas in First Class, the Onboard Lounge where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet, our award-winning in-flight entertainment system with more than 2,000 ‘on demand’ channels, and free Wi-Fi,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations - West. By introducing new A380 services out of Dusseldorf and Madrid, our customers can enjoy seamless connectivity on the most talked about aircraft, to popular destinations in Asia, Africa, Indian Ocean, Australia and the Middle East, via our Dubai hub.”

As of 1st July, EK055 will be operated by an A380, leaving Dubai at 0830hrs and landing in Dusseldorf at 1325hrs the same day, while EK056 will depart Dusseldorf at 1525hrs and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 2355hrs the same day.

As of 1st August, EK142 will be operated by an A380, leaving Madrid at 1530hrs and landing in Dubai at 0045hrs the following day. The return flight EK141 departs Dubai at 0740hrs and arrives in Madrid at 1340hrs the same day.

The Emirates A380 offers a total of 519 seats in a three-class configuration, with 429 spacious seats in Economy Class on the main deck, 76 fully flat-bed mini-pods in Business Class and 14 First Class Private Suites on the upper deck. In all classes, Emirates passengers enjoy spacious seating and the excellent service delivered through our multilingual cabin crew. Business Class and First Class passengers also benefit from a complimentary chauffeur-drive service as well as access to Emirates’ global network of airport lounges.

Emirates is actually more useful for the A380 program than merely the number of planes it purchases relative to other airliners -by its trail-blazing (i.e. opening new routes and destinations), more airports have to invest in making themselves A380 compatible. And with more A380-compatible airports, it becomes more attractive for prospective airliners to purchase A380s for their fleets.

I don't like how they've turned the whole plane into a billboard.
