All this talk about the A380 getting delayed even further to late 2008 and it costing them millions; what is to become of Airbus if the A380 is a complete faliure. After the last announcement of the delay, airlines with A380 orders are unable to expand on time for there futures. Last month Airbus only got four orders on there planes. Airlines might lose faith on the A380 and cancel there contracts and go for Boeing’s 747-800!!! I know airlines are getting frusterated with Airbus. If that happenes, could Airbus get hit hard financialy? I bet the latest news is making Boeing beef up the 787 progress and 748. If the A380 is getting delayed, could the airlines that have A350 orders reconsider?
How much is one of those A380s going for? $300 Mil?
