End of the superjumbo: Airbus is giving up on the A380

Written by on February 16, 2019

Airbus will stop making the A380, pulling the plug on its iconic superjumbo jet that once promised to revolutionize commercial air travel but failed to deliver on outsized expectations. The European plane maker said Thursday that it will stop delivering A380s in 2021 after its key customer, Dubai-based airline Emirates, slashed its orders for the world’s largest airliner. “It’s a painful decision,” Airbus CEO Tom Enders said during a conference call with analysts.
