- 777X Undermines A380 Viability
- Al-Maktoum International Move Built On Frequency, Not Size
- Airbus’ Cancellation Of A380neo
Singapore Airlines’ recently selection of the 777-9 further underscores the A380s growing age and economic irrelevance.
Airbus’ open admission to Emirates that it will not proceed with the A380neo didn’t help, however, the airline was astute enough to lock in up to 200 orders for the 777X family.
In Emirates’ planned configuration(s) for the 777X family, the A380 sports significantly higher seat-mile and trip costs against the 777-9.
