Virgin Atlantic Still on Fence Over A380 With Dreamliners on Way

U.K. billionaire Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. still isn’t sure whether it will ever fly the world’s largest passenger plane as it prepares for delivery of its first Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliners.

“We have options for six A380s” from Airbus Group NV, Chief Executive Officer Craig Kreeger said today in a telephone interview. “We have deferred those a number of times and we haven’t yet decided what we will do when time comes for a terminate-the-batch decision.”
