If A380 sales are soft, which is true, you'd have to admit 747-8 sales are

Eric Schulz - Rolls-Royce

I am convinced that without a massive and significant improvement in airport installations and air traffic control routes, there will be still a lot of congested routes and if anything the city pairs will grow for bigger

Randy Tinseth - Boeing Commercial Airplanes

The very big airplane market for the last 10-15 years has been moving downward and downward. That very big end of the market, maybe one percent, is going to be very, very

Didier Evrard

My first job is at least to adapt to the assumptions that we have for rate 1 in 2018, which is being done. Doing that is our first goal and meanwhile (sales chief) John (Leahy) is trying to sell more to A380 customers. Yes, it is likely that we may have to go below rate 1... and we will continue to study opportunities to (make) our programme as healthy as possible on the financial

Peter Bellew

We're hoping to come to a good agreement with Airbus on the reconfiguration cost on the aircraft. I'll still need some more help from them on that. I think you've hit the nail on the head

Jacques Rocca

Museums are not just about preserving the past; they are also a window on the

Farhad Parvaresh - Iran Air

The nominal value of the contract for purchase of 118 planes from Airbus is $25 billion dollars, but the Airbus proposal to sell A380 has been cancelled so that the value of the contract with Iran Air will not exceed $10

Tim Clark - Emirates

I will be asking Airbus a few questions as to how this could have

Tim Clark - Emirates

We have a new engine coming on and there are some issues with that at the moment. We want the engines as promised in the

Tim Clark - Emirates

What happened was that right-hand gear didn't deploy under gravity drop. So the aircraft landed on the main gear (and) nose gear: it's certified to do

David Flynn - Business Traveller

You can spend money on brand new aircraft with decent business class seats, such as China Southern's (Airbus)

Alain Flourens

The A380 still has a place in the Airbus product

Bruno Benoliel - ALTEN

Within the aerospace sector the main driver for us is Airbus, and as you know Airbus has completely achieved the development of the A350 and A380 planes. So of course the R&D budget has decreased at

Panama City will be our first destination gateway in Central America, providing a convenient option for our passengers travelling from or through our global hub in Dubai and onward to destinations throughout Central

Steven Udvar-Hazy - Air Lease

The adversity to off-balance sheet leasing from the mega carriers of the world is gone forever. Leasing is here to

John Leahy - Airbus Group

How are we going to double the amount of traffic in 15 years if all we can do is double the number of aircraft? You can't do that. We need larger aircraft. it just so happens the A380 is a larger aircraft that people prefer to fly in. It's quieter, smoother, with bigger seats, burns less fuel per passenger for each one of its trips and has less impact on the

And what is the focus now for Airbus, is it on the big super-jumbos, the A380, the new A350, or is on the smaller planes?feedback

Tom Enders - Airbus Group

I can say this plane is absolutely safe to fly. I don't want to go into all the specifics here. Are we learning from this? Absolutely. You heard me talking about taking lessons from the A380 programme for the A350

Fabrice Bregier - Airbus Group

Not at all because it gives us visibility, it allows us to reduce our costs. There is of course what you call discounts on large orders but overall the orders contribute to the improvement in profitability and growth in Airbus. It is not a worry. We have taken orders including 50 A380 for Emirates which will be profitable for the airlines but also

Tom Enders - Airbus Group

Last year was much better than initially expected. This has something to do with the recovery of the market and with us improving our development programmes, especially our critical programmes the A400M and

Charles Champion

I think it will be as good in the air as Concorde, but commercially different. These days before we create a plane we have to have a business plan and we don't start until we know we can sell

Tom Enders - Airbus Group

We've had to learn a lot of lessons – bitter lessons – in the last few years, and now we are stepping up production. It's not working as quickly as we had hoped, nor as quickly as the customers had hoped, but it is a very complex

Peter Hartman

We needed to take these measures because our debt position and costs per unit were running too high, and because of losses on our domestic and European routes. We do this to avoid getting into trouble

Françoise Valin

I believe that this announcement proves that restructuring plan, which involves drastic cuts, can't go forward. It won't work and will even put at risk other Airbus projects, which are running smoothly at the
