Maybe it's Skymark from Japan.


Anyway, Garuda is now saying that they are not interested in the A380, they can be crossed of the list.

The most likely is EVA in my opinion, they operate multiple daily flights to some destinations in North America and currently operate 777-300ER on those routes. So, upgauging to the a380 makes sense.

Or maybe it's Japan Airlines, as a response to ANA's recent order (less likely tough).

EVA Air just spent a bunch of money on the 787 order and 777 order so its unlikely they get A380s unless they get more financial backing.
Cathay Pacific said that they prefer frequency on select routes than capacity but that could change with HKG being so crowded.
Japan Air would be an order in response to ANA but most unlikely.
Air India they could barely operate the 787 with profitability plus they are trying to dump their 777s.
Garuda nope because they said they cant find use year round for the A380s. They most likely would lease some during the Haji.
Jet Airways maybe but not really since they are in the process or have lease out their 777s to other airlines.
Air China or China Eastern I could see them ordering them but then again China Southern is having a hard time using their A380s to the best possible way because of government regulations.
Dont forget that Saudia is rumored or has been rumored to order the A380

GTR66,

It also depends on the situation with the construction of the third runway at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG). If they can start construction very soon, then CX may not be under pressure to buy the A380, instead buying a fairly substantial A350XWB-1000 and 777-9 fleet.

Yes please! I would love to see A380 in Hello Kitty livery. That would become my dream airplane to fly.

Does anybody know about Delta airlines buying 2 A380s? I was speaking to a friend of mine in Delta and he said they are excited about the orders placed by Delta for an A380 as they will fly them to Narita and Australia.

Is that true? or was he just bluffing?

There is no known order from Delta for the A380.

And if they had placed an order it would be more then 2 A380s.

He was probably messing with you. Delta wont be ordering the A380 anytime soon.

Emirates is probably the only candidate to fly the A380 there once they get the whole fleet of A380s on order. They will need any airport that they serve that is A380 ready to be ready because they need a place to put all their whales.

Daily service to NRT and SYD would require four aircraft if operating from LAX or five aircraft if flying from ATL. ATL-SYD would be payload limited.

Maybe your friend was referring to the A350 which Delta does have on order.

Airbus finally broke even on the A380 last year and reported an overall profit of €4.1Bn on turnover of €64bn.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...g-of-u-s-plant

When will it see the ~€20bn development cost and the losses on production from 2008 to 2014 again??? Never. Then again the 747 Jumbo programme nearly sank Boeing around 45 years ago.

Yes, Boeing lost money on early 747s, but they more they covered all those losses with the profits on the 747-400. That occurred because airlines bought the 747 for its range, despite its usually excess capacity, that no other airliner at the time could match (until 777 and A340 models matched its range and killed off 747-400 sales). The A380 does not have a range advantage over efficient large twins like the A350-900 and 777-300ER, so Airbus are able to sell very small numbers to the few airlines which need extreme capacity with low frequency (in a market where high revenue customers demand high frequency).
