Airbus warns of possible A380 delivery delay: Emirates


Emirates airline, the biggest customer for Airbus's A380 aircraft, said the European plane maker notified it of further possible delays in the delivery of the passenger plane.

The Dubai government-owned airline, which has ordered 58 of the world's biggest passenger aircraft, said in a statement it had received a letter from Toulouse, France-based Airbus.

"It’s an Airbus communication regarding possible A380 delays," said an Emirates spokesman, who declined to be identified.

Airline President Tim Clark and Vice Chairman Maurice Flanagan could not immediately be reached for comment.

Emirates expects to receive four A380s this year.
