HB-IWC who is a great source for Emirates info and analysis wrote on A380 thread on a.net
Quoting thegeek (Reply 169): Some people (who are likely to be in the know) write a380.boards.net/thread/321/2014-deliveries that 4 EK frames may have deliveries shifted to 2014 because of wing fixes. Of course, in this case we will only get 21 deliveries this year and will thus reach 118 rather than 122.
Emirates has stated that it will put 9 frames into operation during 2013, so your information of 10 frames delivered to EK in 2013 is likely correct as frame #10 will more than likely be put into operation on 01JAN14.
Other nice thing, they are quoting our forum
