Airbus slashes A380 superjumbo production

The worst bits are -

The A380 build rate will be reduced to eight jets a year in 2019, down from 15 this year and 28 in 2016, Airbus said Wednesday.

The A380 was already due to see production cut to one aircraft a month from next May, and the reductions mean that it is no longer breaking even on a per-plane basis. The company has long since given up on recouping the program’s €25 billion in development costs.


Even if you don't like the aircraft, this isn't good news for anyone.
Airline economics is such a fickle thing. Ask Mr Joyce who has more risk in world health presently than under his own control.......
