thats probably a good sign. i assumed emirates wold try to outdo SQ just for the sake of it. but it probably makes more sense for them to sell 12 x $10,000 first class seats instead of 1 x $50,000 first class double bed suites.

Both Fed Ex and UPS canceled their orders! They went with the 777 instead. I think because of the delays in the freighter version.

Why does the table take up most of the space? It's almost bigger than the seat.

Actually, they did not cancel their orders. It was Airbus which put the development of the A380-800F on ice with no new EIS date in mind. This forced Fed Ex and UPS to go with the B777-F instead, which is also a very nice plane btw.
They received damage compensations from Airbus for this. If Fed Ex and UPS would have cancelled, they would have to pay for cancelling a firm order. This of course did not happen, sad as it is.

But the A380 is gaining momentum. Even Boeing has revised its long-term outlook for VLA upwards to almost a 1,000 pieces. I am sure many of those will be A380's, possibly the -900 version of it. But I also hope to see some more B747-8i's. Even if we have now a King of the Skies, the Queen of the Skies deserves some more orders!

with the ongoing improvements to the a380, it will outperform the 747-8 in almost every area by about 2012. (it already outperforms the 747-8 in some ares now) improvements include reducing the weight by 3 tonnes.

and yes, even boeing are staring to realise that their customers want bigger planes

The 747's days could very well be numbered. There are only two front line passenger carriers in the US that fly them. United and Northwest. If the A380 does indeed get the upper hand, then Boeing should concentrate on continuing development of their 777's and 787's. It'll be interesting what the 797 will be like. There should be one of those, also in just a matter of time.

A380: Airbus did it !!!

Last year, Tom Enders, chairman of Airbus, bet a bottle of Champagne that "Airbus will deliver 12 A380 in 2008". This week end, Qantas took it's 3rd A380: this was the 11th delivery for this year. The 12 one will be delivered to Emirate on 31/12/2008...let's open the Champagne !!!

Well, I think the concept "financial crisis" doesn't exist in the Arab Emirates, specially this enterprise Emirates Airlines.



What a luxury buy!!!

i've seen that list few weeks ago and i was also surprised by the amount of orders to emirates... that's absolutely insane... where will all those planes fly? will they be full of passengers or will they be at first ok but later only fly with half capacity?

their estimates for their growth are very very high, and i dont think 58 A380s will be full.
theres not enough routes for that many plus all the other airbus's they have and all there 777's.

unless they are doing 10 flights daily to london, new york and hong kong using A380's

While on the topic of Emirates, they're putting their A380s to New York JFK and London Heathrow now and Sydney-Auckland soon. I bet whatever frequencies they have on those routes have the potential to go up to A380s too.

In addition, according to reports from Airliners.Net and double-checked with OAG schedules, Emirates is putting the A380 to Rome Fiumicino, Singapore from December 2009. Seoul Incheon from January 1, 2010.
