Excellent -now all we have to wait on are Turkish Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, and Royal Air Maroque.

Are there any other airliners that have expressed some interest in the A380?

There could be some add on orders from Qatar Airways, and ANA.

I guess the "make it or break it" will be what happens in China once the country dips out of the current slowdown? There's no way the A380 will become a success without breaking in to the East Asian market.

Probably wont see any from ANA unless they are really impress with the A380 and or the A380NEO is launched. Qatar maybe they will firm up their options but most likely we wont see any additional A380s, unless Airbus offers the NEO.

The A380 has been making a small profit off of each plane now but not too big of a profit to Airbus's liking. China only has five A380s registered there thanks to China Southern and only Emirates, Lufthansa and Air France flies the A380 to China out of the 13 operators. I would love to see Air China and China Eastern order or lease some A380s.

Fantastic news for the A380 program. And once the 747 is gone, Airbus will have a monopoly on the very large airliner market for at least the next 20 to 30 years.

OPINION: Airbus faces price pressure on A380 sales

Willie Walsh’s enthusiasm for the A380 – and disclosure that British Airways is looking at adding up to half a dozen used examples to its fleet – only serves to remind us what an enigma the Airbus big beast is

More here:
https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...-sales-421179/

An interesting opinion piece which discusses the fact that the A380 is a fantastic aircraft but also a little too expensive in the eyes of many airlines.

It seems to be the ultimate aircraft for slot restricted hubs like Heathrow where BA has been able to free up valuable slots by replacing three Boeing 747 flights to LAX with just two A380 flights..

The A380 will not be in production for another 20 years, let alone 30, unless Airbus are willing to invest several billion euro. It's already not competitive with the 777-9X.

The weak € vs the $ will let it limp along to the end of the decade in some form of serial production. After 2020, no.

The 777X programme may itself have problems by then, a combination of strong $ and an overhang of not too old current generation 777s is recently attractive to large carriers who used to buy new frames not second hand.

If so the 777 production rate may be throttled, it was 100 a year for a few years which appears too much now..... and there would be insufficient 9X deliveries to trouble the A380 until well after 2020 unless it ramped again, I consider that unlikely.

If Boeing keep up 100 frames a year they will soon swamp the wide twin market I fear and apart from killing the giant quad engines off they will flood their own market too. Leeham news had an interesting look at this less than a year back

Deal signed in the Elyssee as I said around here last week.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...how-hits-paris

Quote:
The Airbus accord covers 45 single-aisle planes comprising 21 from the current-generation A320 family and 24 re-engined A320neos, the company said.

The 73 wide-body aircraft ordered include 27 A330s, 18 A330neos, 16 of Airbus’s latest A350s -- in the stretched -1000 variant -- plus the A380s.

Saudi Arabia should strike back now and order 24 A380s!
