I don't think Airbus will commit to building EITHER this side of 2020. They regularly kite out 'new' models for comment by industry, that does not mean they get built all the same.

as for the 8 series A350

Eight is a number widely used by planemakers and is seen as a symbol of success in a key battleground for sales: Asia.

"Eight is a very nice number out in Asia, but we are not going to comment until we launch the program," Leahy said.
Meaning China where they like their 8's . Emirates should be in there looking for an 'auspicious' feng shui name like an A388-888X8X so instead of a neo

The irony is that if you actually look at the orders it's not China who are buying a lot of these 8 versions. Instead they are very happy buying a lot of A330-300s, A350-900s & 777-300ERs. The only -8 plane that is really popular in China is the 737-8 MAX, but not more then the A320neo without the 8.

At the end of the day even Chinese airlines just look at the basic economic numbers when they placing orders and not at the lucky number 8.

Please keep to news and discussion. For example, Air France have cancelled orders for two A380s and ordered A350s instead: http://aviationweek.com/awincommerci...80-order-a350s

There is a thread for photos and it isn't this thread.

2 for 3 A350s, seemingly Airbus have not shown this material fact on their order list either.

The news comes from this document, released in mid February.

http://www.airfranceklm.com/sites/de...ments_2015.pdf (p87)


As it almost took a month before the internet noticed it might even take longer before Airbus gets the notice.

Anyway, it wouldn't be the first time that such a conversion announced by an airliner is only booked later on by the manufacturer. Just like new orders announced as commitments (or LOI, MoU, or whatever) are not always booked as firm order straight away, see the Iran order.

Hmm, Iran Air has signed nothing worth the paper it is written on...yet. Supposed to ink contracts for their 12???? A380s last month. If nothing is signed by end March I'd be inclined to bin the order as a probable me. !!!

Can we stop posting random pictures of A380? This isn't a planespotting thread, it's to discuss news about the A380.

If you want to post plane spotting pictures, there's a sub-forum for that: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4043

Yes! Moderators, please delete all these photos that are unrelated to news. They make it difficult to follow the discussion.

Seriously? Do you not read the threads you post in and just spam them with random pictures? Do you need the thread rules translated into Marathi?

Plane spotting of the A380 goes here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1888822

Make a sticky thread for all type of plane spotting. It'll be popular everyone will be happy. Ppl don't post in the photo section because no one see there. No need for different threads for different planes simply a plane photos and videos thread would be enough.

I'd ban that photobot Oasis seeing as it evidently never posts any news in a news thread.....or discusses anything......ever.
