Company Watch - Virgin Group.

Oct 30, 2006

Virgin Atlantic Airways yesterday reached agreement with Airbus to defer delivery of its six A380s on firm order to 2013. The planes originally were scheduled to arrive in 2009, but Airbus production delays likely would have pushed back delivery. Terms of the deferral were not disclosed. Virgin said it extended leases on several 747-400s to compensate. Airbus said the A380 will have "proven" itself by the time Virgin takes delivery and noted that the deferral will help it "prioritize" deliveries for launch customers. Oct 27, 2006
