Airbus A380 – tenth anniversary

Posted on

Today sees the 10th anniversary of the first commercial flight of the iconic A380. How times flies!

Happy Birthday!

The question, though, is posed – is there a future for the huge aircraft? Orders remain very low – with nothing since 2013. Airbus executives remain, bullish, expecting the market to steadily (albeit slowly) grow in the coming years.
