I don't share the opinion that Quantas' A380 orders are all dubious ones. The company will take more of them. EDIT : I know the correct spelling, I just keep repeating the mistake !
As much as I'd like to agree with you, I've become quite pessimistic that QF will take the rest of their order. Alan Joyce has stated that he thinks that 12 A380s is the right number and QF does seem to be heading towards using the 787 to replace the 747. Saying that, their current plan is to use the 8 787s on order to replace 5 747s which will leave 6 744ers without a stated replacement. If Airbus launches an A380neo though, I wouldn't be surprised to see QF convert the rest of their order to the neo.
Which would mean there were 27 deliveries this year.... I guess we may have up to 32 deliveries in 2016.
Unfortunately, A380 production is now ramping down, due to insufficient demand (except of course from EK).
EK has just stated that they will be taking 20 next year. Then we have the BA(2), QR(2), EY(3), OZ (2). That adds up to 29. If they can find a buyer such as TK or SV for the Skymark frames that would bring it up to 31.
