Airbus forced to postpone delivery of 12 A380 jets to Emirates | Business | The Guardian

Airbus forced to postpone delivery of 12 A380 jets to Emirates | Business | The Guardian:
"Airbus has suffered yet another hitch in the troubled life of its A380 “superjumbo”, as it was forced to postpone delivery of 12 aircraft to its largest customer, Emirates.

The double-decker A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, has proved a disappointment for Airbus since its much-delayed debut in 2007 and the firm has already been forced to cut production after winning fewer orders than expected.

The latest obstacle to throw the €25bn (£21bn) aircraft programme off course has left analysts questioning whether executives at Airbus might consider cancelling it altogether."
