Airbus, Emirates Airlines

Emirates remains confident in 'superb' A380. Emirates remains totally committed to the A380, saying that fundamentally it promises to be a "superb aircraft." Emirates President Tim Clark urged Airbus to instigate program management changes quickly and refocus its energies on getting the program back on track. He said the original A350 would have been a good aircraft "if it was delivered in 1993." Emirates would prefer to wait to see exactly what the A370 will be before committing to the 787-10, "but we are running out of time." Airbus has not yet committed to going ahead with the new variant, he added. "Airbus told us that Singapore Airlines was excited by the new A370, but then they ordered the 787-9." Jun 22, 2006
