Emirates not ready to commit to more A380s

    Emirates president Tim Clark said the airline is not ready to commit to an order for additional A380 aircraft (Bloomberg, 07-Sep-2017). Sir Tim said: “I know they [Airbus] would like us to do something. At the moment we are not at that state of readiness. We need copper-bottomed undertakings that they would do everything they needed to do to keep the programme going. We don’t want to be left with aircraft that have no value”. Airbus reportedly hopes to secure an order from the airline at the Dubai Airshow in Nov-2017.
