Airbus Says Some A380s on Order May Not Be Delivered

Airbus Group NV said it’s closely monitoring the financial health of customers for the flagship A380 and acknowledged that not all superjumbos on order will get built after it pulled a purchase accord with a Japanese carrier.

“Without referring to any specific airline, I can assure you that we have cases where airlines are in the order backlog but not in the production plan,” Chief Executive Officer Tom Enders said today on a conference call to discuss earnings. “We are watching the situation carefully, and know about the strengths and weaknesses of customers.”
