Last quote about Airbus A380

Tom Enders - Airbus Group
The commercial aircraft environment remains healthy while the robust order backlog continues to support our production ramp-up plans. However, we are facing challenges due to ongoing engine issues. There are just too many maturity issues on this engine. That is frustrating for us, that's frustrating for the customers. We have too many removals of engines on aircraft that are in service. The situation for us all is very unsatisfactory.feedback

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

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 billion.feedback

Tim Clark - Emirates

We want the engines as prescribed. We have made no hard and fast decisions about fleeting draw down. We're hoping to get resolution to this very quickly.feedback

Tim Clark - Emirates

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

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 contract.feedback

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 that.feedback

David Flynn - Business Traveller

You can spend money on brand new aircraft with decent business class seats, such as China Southern's (Airbus) A380.feedback

Alain Flourens

The A380 still has a place in the Airbus product portfolio.feedback

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 Airbus.feedback

Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum - The Emirates Group

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 America.feedback

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 stay.feedback

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 environment.feedback

Jon Davies

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 programme.feedback

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 Airbus.feedback

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 A380.feedback

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 it.feedback

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 aircraft.feedback

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 later.feedback

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 moment.feedback

Matthew Hewitt

We heard a bang, and at first we thought it was turbulence. We all looked around at each other and just passed it off as turbulence. Only five seconds later, we heard an increasingly louder bang. It was almost like a bomb sound and some people reported that they thought they'd seen a flash.feedback

Alan Joyce - Qantas

We have decided that we will suspend all A380 takeoffs until we are fully comfortable that sufficient information has been obtained about the QF32… until we are completely confident that Qantas safety requirements have been met.feedback
