Eh there are twice more 787 than there are A380 and A350 combined? Wow I thought Airbus was ahead of Boeing.

And current count of 787 outnumber 747 at its peak, which surprised me.

Yeah, but good luck matching that service record!

It's as if SQ scrapping 2 for parts being cheaper than re-fit is new news or something...

 I understand Emirates park their 3 380's on the tarmac every night or second night, fuel up to the brim and then fly to BNE, MEL, SYD. This must have some form of benefit for us. 

 

 

Emirates have't flown the A380 TT for several years now. There is a single A380 flight to DXB every day.

 

I'd also be highly surprised if they ever flew TT with anything but minimum fuel requirements. Filling them with fuel would be totally pointless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time might be getting away on you. It's been less than a year since they stopped flying out of Auckland TT.

If Airbus had listened to its customers and re-engine onto a more fuel efficient engine, they might still have orders in their orderbook

 

 

When a customer sticks to RR, he has to live with. Do you have a glue what an engine development in this category costs?

 

The A380 development was a huge technological step forward - and last not least a boost for the manufacturer's way to globalization. It's worth the spent huge amount of development costs? Don't know but nevertheless, they're paid and we'll see what will come next. :-)





No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.

So you're saying that Rolls Royce have solved the customer stickiness issue?

Glad to see they can solve something, can't seem to solve reliability issues!





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

And not just RR and its aero engine business.   I'd imagine many large engineering companies based in Europe probably think Britain as a whole has a reliability problem.

the plane will still be in service for 20-25-30 years, so no need for any disappointment, especially against an airline

 

If Airbus had listened to its customers and re-engine onto a more fuel efficient engine, they might still have orders in their orderbook

 

 

I doubt the 380 will in service in 20 years time.

 

As for a re-engine, only one airline, Emirates, was pushing for it. Airbus probably did listen but I'd say the costs of a re-engine programme were not going to be recouped in sales. Based on a prediction of total sales made a few years ago the 380 was never going to make money for Airbus, so throwing more good money after bad wasn't likely to happen.

Once Emirates are (virtually) the only A380 operator they will be able to do what they like as far as new gen engines go, as long as they are willing to bear the design, engineering and certification costs involved.
Once more emissions costs are loaded on aviation the demise of the ‘Four Holers‘ will come even quicker.

Had it not been for production problems and delays in the B787 programme, there would have been many many B767s parked up long before their time!  Something similar is happening with the A380 now.
