Airplane and travel enthusiasts,
Airbus announced Monday, that they may be forced to stop production of their superjumbo A380, if they can’t strike a long-term deal with Emirates airline.
The news came as a bit of a shock, since the company spent numerous years and funding developing the mega plane, to find themselves depending on a deal of 10 years, with an engagement to purchase at least six planes a year.
The only airline capable of such purchasing ability are The Emirates who rely only on the A380 and Boeing 777 to form their large fleet.
In case the program is shut, Airbus would have to focus on the A350 as alternative in the hope of surpassing their competitor Boeing.
