Airbus plans to deliver close to 30 A380s over the next three years following an Emirates order for 50 more, with 25 to be delivered by 2018 and the remaining 25 from 2020. Leahy says Airbus is still finalizing the Doric order for 20 A380s announced at last year’s Paris Air Show and expects “something announceable in the first quarter.”

The company is aiming at producing 10 A350s per month by the end of 2018, four years after entry into service. But Leahy says that “the market would easily justify” a rate of 14 per month.
