Emirates is the biggest customer for the A380 superjumbo. If Emirates pulls its order it would be a devastating hit for Airbus that could force a bailout by the EU.DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Emirates Airline is canceling orders and options for 20 Airbus A340 aircraft and would send a team to the manufacturer’s headquarters in France to check the promised delivery dates for an order for the A380 superjumbo, an airline spokeswoman said Monday.
“Emirates confirms it will not be taking delivery of its order and option for 20 Airbus A340-600 aircraft,” an Emirates spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman, who asked not to be identified further because she was not authorized to speak to the media, said the company was “sending a team of technicians from its engineering department in mid-November to Toulouse in order to assess if the revised timings we have been given for the delayed delivery of our A380s are achievable.”
