Breaking Airbus News (Updated from Gulf News)
Emirates cancels a total of 70 A350's, 50 Airbus A350-900, and 20 A350-1000, knocking the Airbus order book for the A350 further back of Boeing's 787 Program. Airbus book drops down to 742 A350 orders after subtracting 70 from the books. Tim Clark announces the change as a fleet adjustment. Currently Emirates has the 787 family of Aircraft and Boeing's 777-9X on the books. Clark has not been favorable towards the A350-1000. This is a significant blow for Airbus to absorb, as Emirates has been a key customer for the Airbus A380 with Emirates. In the next five months Airbus hopes to deliver its first customer an A350-900. More information emerging on the cancelation tomorrow.
