Airbus Pledges New Engines and Stretch ‘One Day’ for Ailing A380

Airbus Group NV sought to dispel concern that it may ditch the flagship A380, saying it expects to go ahead with plans to give the superjumbo more efficient engines or even build an ultra-high-capacity stretch version.

Fabrice Bregier, who leads the company’s airliner unit, told investors that upgrades of the A380 are just a matter of time, a day after the parent group’s finance chief raised the prospect of discontinuing the plane as soon as 2018.
