Thats interesting, Airbus say they can slow the delivery rate while not losing money on the A380 year to year. It means that with a few orders and a bit of throttling back on the production rate it may then remain in production into 2019 some time.

Break-even would mean making enough money to cover a) the approximately 20 billion euro spent on development, plus b) the approximately 5 billion euro lost on all the frames delivered from 2007 through 2014, plus c) the interest at Airbus' cost of capital for a) and b). What has actually happened is that Airbus are no longer adding to the losses. There is zero chance that Airbus could ever earn enough on future frames to cover a) plus b) plus c).

How would a break-up of the European Union (spurred by the exit of the United Kingdom) affect Airbus? Already we are seeing the Netherlands and Austria considering holding referendums of their own, with probably more to follow after Britain's example.

I would not expect much of an effect upon Airbus. Any country leaving the EU would almost certainly stay in the European Economic Area, along with non-EU countries like Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

These proposed referenda seem to be just for the purpose of giving added legitimacy to staying in the EU.

ps: I note this may be the wrong thread so, if it will turn into a discussion, it should probably be moved to the correct thread.

The EU doesn't really have anything to do with Airbus. It's publicly traded company, based in the Netherlands with just Germany and France as sizable goverment owners (both 10.9%) (+ Spain 4,1%). In an unlikely scenario that the EU collapses it won't effect the ownership situation, the company can still continue to operate. Especially since France and Germany will then directly start a new union, where most countries in Western Continental Europe will join in. Airbus will continue to operate in this new situation.

The only effect it will have on the company is economical. If the economies of the then former EU countries are effected it will influence the results of the EU airlines that have Airbus planes on order. If it negative it could results in less orders or even cancellations.

It shows a hypothetical gate arrangement that can accommodate either one Category F aircraft (A380 or 747-8) or one Category C aircraft (A320 or 737) and one Category D aircraft (A310 or 767).

shame on me, I live in Hamburg and have yet to see that beautiful view (except the weather)! It kinda looks like a small Emirati hub

Rumor has it that Emirates are picking up Malaysia's A380's. One air frame is back in Airbus's plant being refurbished for Emirates, first hand over should be around July.

I think it's MSN114.

Airbus A380 completes longest ever passenger flight

David Reid, CNBC
Saturday, Mar 05, 2016


Quote:
An Emirates Airbus A380 jet has completed the longest current commercial passenger flight by distance.

The plane flew in to the record books Wednesday when it landed in Auckland, New Zealand after an 8,824 mile non-stop journey from Dubai.

The journey beat the previous record set by Qantas which travels 8,577 miles between Dallas Fort Worth and Sydney.

The A380 was only used on the inaugural flight, from now on the 777-200LR will be used. It's going to be a shared record for this longest flight until Qatar also starts Auckland at the end of the year, also with a 777-200LR.

Qatar Airways is considering purchasing more A380s, in large part due to low oil prices.

Rubbish. SIN-EWR is the longest ever passenger flight -- several hundred miles farther than DXB-AKL. SQ operated it for years using A340-500s.

I believe this was in reference to the longest flight operated by the A380...

The lifespan of the aircraft is likely to be longer than the lifespan of the current cheap oil prices.

More likely the longest currently active flight. You know, anything biggest or longest always gets media attention, it doesn't matter if it's not 100% accurate.


In the mean-time...

Emirates is not happy with Airbus delaying and not giving clarity about the A380neo. They rather see Airbus investing in this neo then in a proposed stretched A350 (A350-1100/A350-8000) which might be launched soon.
