Airbus executive says considering cuts to A380 production, still undecided
Dec 14, 2017
Reuters Excerpt

Airbus SE (AIR.PA) is considering cutting production of its A380 superjumbo to six or seven planes a year, but has made no final decision on the matter, a top executive said on Thursday amid growing question marks over the future of the double-decker jet.

The A380 has battled against sluggish sales, squeezed by smaller, more efficient twin-engined jets. Airbus has previously announced plans to lower output to 12 aircraft in 2018 and eight in 2019, compared with an annual peak of 30.

“We believe we can produce this aircraft at 6-7 a year in an industrial way,” Airbus Chief Operating Officer Fabrice Bregier told Reuters after the first Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIAL.SI) A380 featuring a new cabin configuration landed in Singapore.

“It is a way to be able to go through I would say are low tide years... The A380 will find its way progressively.”

The comments come ahead of a board meeting on Thursday where directors are seeking to contain damage from international fraud investigations over commercial and military sales, while getting a grip on what could become a chain reaction of departures, people familiar with the matter have said.

Bregier, who dismissed on Wednesday a report in France’s La Tribune newspaper that he had agreed to leave Airbus in February next year, said on Thursday he hoped to remain at the firm.

“You can see I am quite relaxed about it,” he said. “I don’t need to be outside the door to listen to what will happen but I think they were clear that all of this buzz in the French press is probably a bit premature.”

Festering animosity between Bregier, who is not a board member, and CEO Tom Enders boiled over earlier this year in a row over who should control the powerful jet sales department.

Analysts say ongoing negotiations over a deal with carrier Emirates will be decisive for the future of the A380.

Emirates, which held off signing an order for an estimated 36 aircraft at last month’s Dubai Airshow, wants guarantees Airbus will produce the A380 for the next 10 years.

Reducing output to six a year would help to bridge that period and support key second-hand values while Airbus looks for other buyers, but could leave the program losing money for at least part of the period.

Depsite a source telling Korean Air plans to remove its first A380 from fleet and store it at Roswell, we have confirmation the airline will not!

Korean Air confirmed to AIRLIVE there is no plan to ground its A380 nor to look at A350 instead.

All 10 A380 for Korean Air are in operation and will remain so.

In the mean time Airbus and Emirates are negotiating a deal through the media, it doesn't look like that their coming closer together.


Airbus ready to phase out A380 if fails to win Emirates deal: sources

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-a...KBN1EL11L?il=0

Quote:
PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus is drawing up contingency plans to phase out production of the world’s largest jetliner, the A380 superjumbo, if it fails to win a key order from Dubai’s Emirates, three people familiar with the matter said.

The deal breaker does still seem like Emirates demand for a solid guarantee that the A380 will stay in production until 2028. It also shows that Airbus isn't in serious talks with any other airline about a A380 order.

Well its sad to read. Well the big carriers already bought their A380's and for some years they dont need new ones. Once these get old they can start the A380neo program.

It would be a big mistake to cancel A380 program. Airbus literally has a monopoly in this plane class.

what's the point in having a monopoly, when no one is ordering new planes.

Or the airliners can buy the Boeing 777X instead.

Didn't know the 777X had anywhere near the capacity of the A380?

Wouldn't be a terrible thing.. flew on the A350 extensively this past summer and loved it. Easily one of the nicest planes I've ever flown on.
