This has been all over the media the last few days. An EK A380 pilot makes a superb cross wind landing.

One of the other reasons, apart from the parking charges and the QF tie up. The passenger loads from DXB to AKL direct is under 50% of the A380 capacity. Whereas DXB - BNE/PER/SYD is close to a high 90%+. Passenger loads BNE/PER/SYD to AKL and return is a good 70%+. During the holiday season and summer, this figure jumps to over 90% ex AKL.

Tim Clark of Emirates downplays the possibilities of a A380neo launch at the Dubai Airshow next month.

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...0-next-417326/

Emirates are also saying that they don't want to much change, no stretch, just new engines and aerodynamic tweaks that should already give it a big enough improvement.


Airbus has also been careful recently, also suggesting that the A380neo will not happening this year.

But you always have to be careful with this kind of reports, it might just be to create a smoke screen just before a big announcement. But it's clearly not an absolute certainty that Emirates will place a mega order at the Dubai Airshow.

On the A380 NEO, Airbus is faltering in it's decision to produce it. Emirates has guaranteed a an order for 200 of the NEO's, given in writing by Sir Tim Clark. Emirates would prefer a stretched version, with new engines like the RR-1000, to accommodate an extra 40 to 60 passengers. Emirates would even settle with the new engines and a few tweaks on the air frame. Etihad, Qatar, Singapore, Qantas and the others are also hoping for the NEO.
Airbus is said to have lost a huge amount on the A380, as the anticipated orders were not forthcoming, excepting for the 150 aircraft order from Emirates, all that is required for Airbus to do is to invest the required $2 Billion to produce the Neo, and see the orders flow in.

Emirates never guaranteed Airbus an order for 200 A380neo's.

Tim Clark has said that for the replacement of the current A380 fleet + expansion they need between 100 and 200 more A380s and that he is pushing Airbus to go ahead with the A380neo.

Somehow people have translated this as Emirates placing an order for 200 A380neo's the moment it's launched. But it's very unlikely that this will happen.

Other airlines have also shown a bit of interest, Etihad and Qatar would probably place another order. Both airlines were also expected to order more of the current version, but that never happened.

Singapore Airlines shown some interest, but mainly to have their last couple A380 they currently have on order to be delivered as neo's.

Qantas is not the market for more A380s. Maybe only later when the current ones are up for retirement, but then they will look at all the new planes on the market.

Furthermore there hasn't been any vocal interest for the A380neo from any airline. And Airbus knows exactly who has shown interest, also from the airlines that haven't said anything in the media. Airbus also knows that their investors are closely looking at the developments. We have seen that the comments about a termination of the project at an investors event had a instant negative effect on the stock-price. They are very careful what they will say and what they will do. The investors won't necessarily be happy when Airbus does launch it with Emirates as it's only customer.

Airbus will only launch the A380neo if there's a solid business case and they are not in a hurry to launch it until they are certain that they got a solid business case.

Cheap oil is also keeping EK happy for now with the CEO I think.

Transaero have gone bust and with that 4 x A380 orders.

How far into actual build were the first 2 Transaero planes and speaking of builds what became of the Skymark frame that was built last year, MSN167 ??

Last I heard was Transaero's A380s were in the process of being built in factories across Europe so maybe Airbus has some time to ask an airline if they want to take Transaero's spots in the delivery schedule. Emirates would be a good candidate

The A380aeo is going to run into a very prosaic problem by the end of 2016. Terminal capacity in Dubai airport will probably be maxed.

A new airport is part built nearby with a small terminal to kick things off but it will need an extra runway (or 3) and some 120m pax worth of more terminal capacity in total in order to facilitate a move as the new airport will certainly need to handle 100m Pax on day 1 and with more terminal capacity coming on stream not far behind.

This is/was allegedly 'scheduled' for 2020 by which stage the current Dubai airport will be absolutely gasping unless they can decant some customers. Emirates account for around 45m Pax at DBX with all other airlines accounting for 30m between them.

I'd be looking to hear announcements on this inevitable airport move at the Dubai Airshow seeing as the current Dubai airport will pass out Heathrow this year and seeing as the Dubai Airshow takes place at the very new airport that Emirates must move to after the necessary works.

A much less relaxed timescale than "after 2020" surely needs addressing.

http://gulfnews.com/business/aviatio...tral-1.1532561

Quote:
Emirates fleet will be between 280 and 300 widebody aircraft by the time it shifts to DWC, Clark said, up from around 230 today.

"There is nothing stopping us to doubling the size of the airline [to 600 aircraft] once we get to DWC," Clark added.

Clark has previously said the airline would be able to operate 250 Airbus A380s from DWC. It currently operates 61 from a total order of 140.

The airline is scheduled to shift over to DWC located in the south of Dubai along the Abu Dhabi border some time around 2025 when a $32-billion project expanding the airport to 120 million annual passenger capacity is completed.
Tim gave flightglobal an update on the capacity issue in Dubai today.

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...0-next-417326/

Quote:
Clark says he does not think Airbus will launch an A380neo at the air show and suggests Emirates would not be able to incorporate any more of the ultra-large aircraft at its close-to-capacity Dubai International (DXB) base for now anyway.
I assume he means 'after we get all the ones we ordered in the first place' as he has 75 more on order right now. And the move to the new airport is even more relaxed.

Quote:
Despite congestion at DXB, Clark says the new Dubai World Central, or Al Maktoum International, will not be ready for Emirates to relocate its passenger operations until the second half of the 2020s.
Operationally, and with 65 out of 140 A380s delivered Tim already seems to be managing the A380 fleet so far.

Quote:
"Ultimately, there are only a certain number of parking spaces and it's becoming more difficult,"
If he is waiting over 10 years for his new airport and megaterminal it will continue to get more difficult. A interim smaller terminal for at Al Makhtoum, for everybody _but_ Emirates might be what frees up capacity in DBX but even such a terminal needs to cater for 30m pax when built so smaller is rather relative in Dubai nowadays.

This years Dubai airshow should be the first Airshow ever that is all about the host airport itself and if no meaningful announcements are made at it then I cannot see Emirates ordering any more A380s for a long long time. I'd expect Emirates to get dibs on an 80m pax terminal of their very own in such an announcement if not indeed 100m pax.

Tim also mentioned a possible A350-1000 order next year and who know....it may even be instead of some A380s already on order given his airport problems. However as he himself capped his fleet at 300, has 230 now and 70 A380s to come then the A350-1000 is evidently a replacement for something else.....but what exactly?????

Nobody has even seen 'problems' like the ones Tim faces in all of recorded history, kinda reminds me of the Battle of Kansas in 1944.

While your post is well developed i do not understand one thing. Emirates will actually receive almost 30 A380 from now until the end of 2016 (a date that you have marked as important):

http://www.abcdlist.nl/a380f/a380f.html

I assume that emirates will keep the path it has been following in recent years, a capacity increase of 10% with a occupancy rate of around 80%:



http://www.theemiratesgroup.com/syst...cm:409-2358317

Putting both things together i will assume that Emirates will sale as much Boeing 777 as needed to continue their actual way of doing, that is needed in order to stick to just a 10% capacity increase, if they will not sale planes capacity will be increased above 10%. In fact that means substituting the Boeing´s by the airbus, which is actually one of the classical arguments of the Airbus A380, it allows to increase the capacity of an Airport without new terminals or pathways.
