Dubai Airshow Emirates Airbus Quest

November 18, 2013 by  

Dubai Airshow Emirates Airbus Quest, The fact that Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airlines bought more than $150 billion worth of commercial planes on the first day of the Dubai Airshow has surprised no one, but at the same time worried just about everyone in the airline industry — well, everyone who’s not working for the Gulf airlines. The sheer number of aircraft being purchased at this year’s show is outstanding, amazing and a little bit disconcerting.

The headline deal is Emirate’s eye-popping, jaw-dropping deals for 150 Boeing 777X airliners and 50 Airbus A380s, which comes at a time when other airlines are shunning the superjumbo.

Airbus risked ending the year without any A380 sales until the Emirates’ order arrived. The industry wondered whether Airbus was going to slow down the A380 production line because of a lack of orders, as Boeing has done with its 747-800 assembly line. Emirates saved the day — which, I confidently predict, means Emirates boss Tim Clark got a very good price for his new planes, way below the $403.9 million list price. With this order Emirates is the A380 fleet, owning more than 50% of all orders of the airliner.
