Re: Emirates signs a commitment for 36 additional A380's

It's not a question of my success but the A380s lack of success mate. That is an opinion, not a fact.

Re: Emirates signs a commitment for 36 additional A380's

Not sure if this was mentioned, but the contract seems to include some industrial compensations, like for Strata Manufacturing, which will then start the supply HTPs (20/month) for A320 planes.
