Is anyone aware of the latest A380 delivery schedule? Its apparent that the cracks and the lack of deliveries are hampering the schedule lately, with the second dailies of LAX and CPT being cancelled.

A6-EDV and A6-EDW are still sitting put as no flights have been recorded for these aircraft.

Delivery dates for these aircraft are still unknown. I presume until Emirates and Airbus come to an agreement. Until then I'd expect -EDX and -EDY to be held as well.

Sorry have to clarify this, are EDV and EDW the supers sitting in XFW? I herd one of them was sent from XFW to TLS to have its wings fixed... as EK said they wouldn't accept a A380 delivery until they were fixed simply because they didn't have enough space on the ground to put 388s until they were to go into maintenance. So if thats the case EDX and EDY must be in XFW as well?

Confirm. A6-EDV and A6-EDW were last positioned at XFW. But I trust your information in regarding the re-positioning of A6-EDV, after all it does make sense since A6-EDV should be in line for delivery prior to the others (-EDW, -EDX etc...).

Going off your information that would leave A6-EDW and A6-EDX stationed at XFW (providing A6-EDV has been re-positioned to TLS for scheduled repairs).

The last word I heard on A6-EDY is that she's still on the production line, but roll out should be commenced anytime within the next month.

Actually, A6-EDW is still sitting in TLS. They already ferried flight to TLS a couple weeks ago.

The newest B77W A6-EGR is currently on delivery. With the ongoing A380 issues, it seems that EK can't get the B77Ws quick enough.
