Airbus to postpone deliveries of A380 until second half of 2006, report says
Airlines say Airbus will delay deliveries of its A380 superjumbo jet until the second half of 2006, the Wall Street Journal reports. The manufacturer previously expected to deliver the planes in the first half of the year. Airbus would not comment on the delays. Engineers say efforts to reduce the weight of the plane and technical issues are stalling the program. They added that the delays do not signal fundamental problems with the plane.
