The proceeds from the issuance will be used to fund the acquisition of four Airbus A380-800 aircraft, which are expected to be delivered in April, May, June and July. The aircraft will be leased to and operated by Emirates, the airline said in a statement on Monday.

This will reduce the total number of deliveries for the year. .
No, surely not, the 30th plane will likely be MSN194, convoid 1 month ago.
So far we are at 28,
first additional if additional would be, could be MSN205 for Emirates, and then perhaps indeed one more for BAW but who knows if this could happen, they already forwarded MSN192 from 2016 to 2015 so could they do a second one?.... Another possibility to reach 30 could be MSN206EK that was convoyed after MSN194BA, but that could still make it this year.

Some news for A380 neo programme, I will try to resume this exclusive article in french:
Airbus asked to Emirates 3 questions in response of Emirates' demand of launching A380 neo program: - How much money could Emirates give for co-funding the development? - How many A380neo could they order? - What is their planning for entry in service?
Airbus propose to use a derivative of Trent XWB, an engine a bit too powerful but with development costs reduced (IMO, rather than Advance engine). But excess power opens stretch version. Neither Airbus nor Emireates accept to comment this article.
Source also said that no announcement will be done at Dubai Air Show 2015. (IMO, still possible, could be a great surprise!
Also in the article,
En 2015, Airbus livrera entre 23 et 25 A380.
"In 2015, Airbus will deliver between 23 and 25 A380s".
Now at 20 deliveries this year, there would be for sure MSN191EY5, MSN192BA10 and then 3 for Emirates?... Though 5 more EK are supposed to be delivered this year (and still have plenty of time to do so): MSN200EK68 MSN201 MSN202 MSN203 and MSN204....... At least the first 4 of these are needed as the corresponding 2-class routes have already been announced and all start on 01/01....
