    Why not either search this forum, or search the internet?

    I had a quick look on www.airbus.com, and straight away found out that there was 159 orders for the A380. I'm sure if I could be bothered, I could find out which airlines they are very easily.

    Airlines include, Singapore, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates etc.

    Hi Lee, quite a few airlines have the A380 on order with Singapore Airlines due to recieve the first.

    Passanger Aircraft:

    Air France - 10 Firm Orders with 4 Options
    Emirates - 41 firm orders with 10 options
    ILFC - 5 firm orders
    Korean Air - 5 firm orders with 3 options
    Lufthansa - 15 firm orders
    Malyasia Airlines - 6 firm orders
    Qantas Airways - 12 firm orders with 12 options.
    Qatar Airways 2 firm orders with 2 options.
    Singapore Airlines 10 firm orders with 15 options.
    Virgin Atlantic 6 firm orders with 6 options.

    Freighter Aircraft:

    Emirates - 2 firm orders
    ILFC - 5 firm orders.
    FedEx - 10 firm orders.

    This is what I understand to be the latest information, please feel to correct it where wrong .

    EDIT: Seems this list is out of date now with Tom's total adding up to 159 and mine only 129, looking at it this was printed in 2004! so there are another 30 orders flying around somewhere :diablo: .

    thus 20;
    freighters:

    Emirates orders 36 Airbus A380 aircraft



    Recently, Airbus was declaring its readiness to phase out its A380 model if fails to win Emirates' deal …

    … epilogue: 20 Firm + 16 Options for Emirates. Deliveries will start from 2020. Some of the new Airbus A380s will be used as fleet replacements.

    This order should secure production for another 10 years and this will most certainly keep the program alive until Airbus finally push forward with the NEO (New Engine Option) program. Shame they couldn't get this done and dusted for the Dubai air show.
    Airbus needed that Emirates' order, but Emirates needs A380s just a s bad. Time may well show that in the end there will still be a place for the A380s. Anyway, a win for the passengers, especially those in Y-class. For the right price there might be a group of re-orders from early customers. New customers might get second hand ones for cheap instead of expensive new ones. We'll see if China's market could accept more aircraft. The France-based manufacturer was reportedly offering China an industrial partnership with the company if Beijing places orders for its largest passenger jet. Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Fabrice Bregier, was in China to hold talks after traveling to the country as part of French President Emmanuel Macron's trade mission. Rami Myerson, an analyst at Investec, said that there had been speculation for some time that Beijing will invest in the Airbus A380 superjumbo. There is a view that aircraft and airspace are becoming more and more congested and given the strong growth in China that could be an attractive plane for the country.

    The media have devoted a lot of attention to this news ...

    Please, click on the images for the articles























    So far, 101 aircraft have been delivered to , 90 of them powered by four GP7270, twin-shaft, high-bypass, turbofan engines (fan diameter: 116,0 in / 2.946,4 mm; BPR: 8,8:1; engine architecture: 1F+5LPC–9HPC2HPT–6LPT), OPR: 36,1:1, each rated at 332,44 kN / 33.899 kgf / 74.735 lbf and 11 aircraft powered by four Trent 972B-84, three-shaft, high-bypass, turbofan engines (fan diameter: 2.946,4 mm / 116,0 in; BPR: 7,7-8,5:1; engine architecture: 1F–8IPC=6HPC1HPT=1IPT–5LPT), OPR: 39,0:1, each rated at 356,81 kN / 36.384 kgf / 80.214 lbf.
