I think it's 8 this year, 6 from next year. Last year was 1 a month.

Last year deliveries were 12, this year I expect 12 again. 3 for ANA and 9 for Emirates.

The undisclosed order for 10 A380, which was the former Hong Kong Airlines order was canceled in December.

The current backlog (up to 31 Dec 2018) = 87

Thanks for the information. I would have missed it otherwise.

So, after cancelling the Virgin- and the Hong Kong Airlines orders, there are just two disputable orders remaining:
Amadeo: 20
Air Accord: 3

And 8 for QANTAS are also zombies.

There are 53 for Emirates and 3 for ANA undelivered.

56 credible orders to be filled. That’s still 7 years backlog!
Thanks and best Regards

Ah, forgot about the eight QF airframes. For some time I thought QF keeps these orders and will use them later for replacing their oldest A380s, which have performance-limitations in comparison to the A380s available right now. But since QF will soon refurbish the cabins of all twelve A380s, my assumption seemed to be wrong.

A decade after the Qantas Airbus A380 took to the skies, the airline’s 12-strong superjumbo fleet will soon head into the hanger for a mid-life makeover.
The first red-tailed A380 will get its revamp in March 2019, with the tip-to-tail upgrade being overseen by Airbus.
It’s expected to take until the end of 2020 for all twelve A380s to be refurbished. Here’s what you’ll see in Qantas’ spruced-up superjumbos.

Source, article from January 3, 2019: https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-will-up ... -to-expect

I guess when the decision for the Project-Sunrise-RFP has been made, we will know more (either “recycling” the A380-orders into new A350-orders or – in case Boeing wins – cancelling them eventually ….(….. or keeping them? ….. :innocent: ….)).

Edit: I forgot this statement by CEO Joyce himself:
Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said in December 2016 said the A380 fleet would remain at 12. “The 12 current aircraft we’re happy with and the eight that we have on order from Airbus we don’t see a need for them and we will keep pushing them out,” Joyce said at the time.”

Source: http://australianaviation.com.au/2018/0 ... -delivery/
How I wish he would have chosen a sentence with “we will keep pushing them out UNTIL …”

Well 2026 to be precise.They need all the time they can get! But it really will ( obviously) depend on RR and the Ultra.They will certainly not commit to production just for the A380! It would have to be for the 787/350.
RR are going through a very tough time at the moment.No ( more) room for costly errors.They will want to make money on the Trent10/7000 first.If no move from GE ( or P&W I suppose) on geared 787NEO would they bother to have an unnecessary fight? Not so sure.
In that scenario it's simply closure.Perhaps more likely frankly unless the whole concept of a 550-600 seater gains traction in the mean time.

Sorry makes no sense to me to have a discussion about A380 production in a thread about one order being cancelled. Too many threads on Anet, many of which are started by self opinionated flame baiters.
