PARIS Nov 14 Airbus parent EADS is
sticking to plans to break even on the A380 in 2015, based on 30
deliveries that year, but a small shortfall compared to these
goals "would not be a financial disaster," its finance director
said on Thursday.
Airbus will decide at the end of the year whether any
changes in A380 production are needed as it continues to face a
handful of unsold slots for 2015, Harald Wilhelm told reporters,
confirming a Reuters report.
Airbus is meanwhile working to finalize a tentative order
from Doric Lease Corp for 20 of the superjumbos as well as other
unspecified deals, he said in a conference call.
