Airbus, Emirates Face Off Over A380 Future at Dubai Air Show


DUBAI—After stepping back from making a big expected order for Airbus SE’s largest jet, the A380 super jumbo, Emirates Airline on Tuesday ratcheted up the pressure on the plane maker, demanding it commit to making the unprofitable plane for at least another decade before it buys any more. “The undertaking that Airbus will have to make if we go ahead with a further order is that the plane will continue in production for a period of minimum of 10 to 15 years,” Emirates Airline President Tim Clark said at the Dubai Air Show.
