Emirates would actually still receive eight Airbus A380s. So it was agreed after the Golf Airline canceled 39 copies and thus gave the aircraft program the killing blow in February 2019. But the corona crisis apparently caused the managers in Dubai to rethink again.

As the news agency Bloomberg writes, Emirates plans to take over only three Airbus A380s by next March. The airline no longer wants the five remaining super jumbos. However, according to the report, the manufacturer is adorned. Because the planes are already being built. The last parts were delivered to Toulouse in February.

Fines are due

Airbus apparently is pushing for later deliveries or payments. Without agreement, Emirates would have to pay a penalty of $ 70 million per aircraft.
