A380 gets a lifeline

AIRBUS sprang a complete surprise on the opening day of the ILA Berlin Air Show at Schoenefeld last Tuesday with the announcement that Emirates had extended its 58 aircraft order for the Airbus A380 by an astonishing 32 more units.  Airline President Tim Clark had sat through the previous day with his airline colleagues at the IATA gathering in central Berlin without saying a word.  The new commitment takes the Emirates order book up to 143, all wide-bodies.  Orders for the super jumbo had stalled over the last period and this commitment is considered a lifeline. www.airbus.com www.emirates.com
