Really? It stating MSN206 is expected for delivery in Jan 2016, now we are already 10 days into February.
And we knew EK is taking 21 this year, that's up to MSN 227. This link shows up to MSN231, 3 extra frames in 2016 which is incorrect.
A correction and sum up: 2xBA 194, 215 3xEY 195, 198, 199 1xQR 193 2xOZ 230, 231 23xEK up to 229 makes 31 for 2016, maybe EK is too high. It would mean delivery up to the 12th convoy in may. Last year the 12th was MSN 206.
He also told reporters that the A380 superjumbo would remain at breakeven in 2017 despite a drop in deliveries to 20-25 aircraft as the planemaker continues to reduce costs. For 2016, he said deliveries would be similar to the 27 recorded in 2015.
My count was saying 29, if we have 27 this year I think most likely MSN231OZ would go 2017, and probably MSN193 or an EK frame..
I assume we will see 21 EK, the 2 BA, 1 or 2 OZ, 3 EY and perhaps 1 QR. I think we will see at least 27 frames perhaps even 29. The guidance was not for the exact same number as in 2015 but only a similar number.
All of the above are either in TLS or XFW already.
