Airbus executives have to open the books on their spending versus income for the 380 is waning. Orders are being cancelled in favour of the Airbus 350. No matter how much oil you are sitting on cannot meet the challenges of the Emir's Airlines.
There is not enough demand for the 380. Qantas just cancelled a deal for 8 380's.
Emirates is seriously looking at the 350. The 380 business plan did not work out. The critics were right about this coming catastrophe.

As was I. look up some of my long ago posts and recognize that my comments about AB never recovering their development costs were dead on and and the impending 7X and 350 will neuter its market. Boeing passed on a super jumbo and the passing of the 747 proves that ETOPS has won the day. The crusty old golfer, Lee Trevino, once said, It ain't braggin if you can do it!

The A350 is a better aircraft, better fuel efficiency, will fit standard airports.
