Yes please! Anyone better clued in on what to expect this year?

Heard on Emirates Radio yesterday that there will be 22 new aircraft. This site http://www.abcdlist.nl/a380f/a380f.html says we can expect 16 A380s, heard 11 on the Emirates Fleet thread which seems more likely.

Fair to expect at least 9 retirements (8 340s and the last 772)?

The two class configuration for the A380 will be 58J/557Y for a total of 615 seats.

It'll first be delivered on A6-EOP, A6-EOQ, A6-EOR, and A6-EOS towards the end of 2015.

So Y will be upstairs now too?

I assumed that upstairs would be exclusively J.

That starts around 18 aircraft from now. Previous posts indicated only 12 or 13 A380s to be delivered this year, so are they getting out of sequence or are the previous reports incorrect?

Perhaps your math is incorrect. A6-EOF is the 1st aircraft away from being delivered, which means that A6-EOP is the 11th aircraft away from being delivered.

Not the maths, just looking at an out of date document that had EEX as the last one delivered - my mistake.

A6-ERI has left the fleet.

This leaves just ERB, ERE, and ERJ.
