Lufthansa orders 20 Boeing 787-9 and 20 additional Airbus A350-900 planes. Some say the additional A350 is due to trade in of 6x A380s.

LH presser:

Will MH be able to get 20 A350s if it trades in its 6 A380s?

Is the A330neo not good enough? Doesn't seem popular

Or trade in for 25/30 A320/321neos? Azmin did urge the review of 737Max order...

God knows what will become of MH, maybe a merging of Air Asia and MH becomes the premium arm, thus switching to an all Airbus fleet and getting rid of the Max orders. Then there was the study by Airbus to set up a FAL in Negeri Sembilan.

All this is just my pipe dream

I can see only a hand full of airlines can negotiate with airbus to trade in their A380 with new orders.  LH is one.  EK is definitely the other.  Too big of a customer to lose.

On assumption that manufacturer A does decide to cough up a good trade in deal for the MH 380s, I'm guessing it will be Khazanah who will reap the good fortune whilst MAG will end up having to write off all that has been invested so far in Project Amal, plus whatever consequent liabilities it may incur due to lack of suitable equipment :)

They have already done a deal to reduce 380 order against new orders for 330-900 and 350-900

re. https://www.reuters....s-idUSKCN1Q30H7

 

When they start playing on trade in deals for existing airframes, considering what proportion of EK's fleet is of the entire flying fleet, it will be a different ball game I imagine :)
