That's was I was suspecting a little while ago, MSN115 delayed until MSN117 is ready and both delivered within a short time in spring, exact same situation as happened with MSN052/MSN064 a few years ago....... let's see what happens...

October 2013 MSN124 - BA3 MSN127 - EK MSN128 - KE8 MSN131 - TG5
November 2013 MSN134 - EK MSN125 - TG6
December 2013 MSN135 - EK
I think though we will see both MSN119 and MSN123 in June, MSN132 in July, maybe MSN121 in July as well? I'd expect MSN124 to be well ready by September, and most likely MSN125 to be delayed until the very end of the year.
[frames for EK though might be delivered in a different order after the Summer]
Fabien, some frames are missing in your overview. You list 15 of them for delivery this year. With 6 A380s already delivered, that would make a yearly total of 21 only, while Airbus' recent guidance was 25.
We also know that QR's MSN 137 is to be the first 2014 frame, which means that all frames presently in TLS, up to MSN 140, were scheduled for delivery in 2013. Do you think this is unlikely ?
We should in my opinion reserve this thread for discussions about A380 deliveries, and have discussions about deliveries of other aircraft types in a separate thread.
For consistency, I suggest that this thread be renamed "2013 deliveries (A380)" and that discussions about 2013 deliveries of other types, or 2013 deliveries in general, be moved to a new "2013 deliveries (all types)" thread. The latter would showcase the ever popular discussions about the 2013 A vs B delivery race.
The same should apply to discussions about 2014 deliveries, or about orders.
Yes, I know we still have 4 frames missing... Data of EK frames by alfa male are still the same at 9 this year... I guess either Emirates will agree to take more to reach Airbus' announcement (and then take frames non yet repaired), either Airbus might review its forecast down a little, to reach 21,...
