Wow! No wonder even after QR said that they are not taking any deliveries, Airbus still keep MSN368, 382, 399 at the DC for such a long time. Great negotiation skills from Airbus side!
This September turned out to be a very fruitful beginning of the autumn season.
Yep seems like the delivery strategies for Airbus customers (including DL, CX and possibly QR) is to take the existing built inventory first and then defer the unfinished ones until foreseeable future according to how global travel demand would rebound in the next couple years and obviously having an eye on the vaccine situation. Good sign for Airbus to at least be able to get some of the revenues back in this cash-crunch time.
And lastly we shall never take QR's words as is lol.
