No Firm Decision Taken To Cancel A380s, Says MAS
News From : DagangHalal.com (6/30/2010)

KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 (Bernama) -- No firm decision has been taken to cancel the A380s, says MAS managing director and CEO Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin.

"We are still evaluating various options and are in discussions with Airbus.

"In the final analysis, whatever decision we make must be the right decision for MAS. The RM329 million compensation was for past delays and was booked in the first quarter of 2010," added Tengku Azmil.

Deputy Minister of Transport Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri told the Dewan Rakyat that MAS will not cancel its order for six A380 super jumbo aircraft from Airbus despite the prolonged delivery delay.

Airbus was supposed to deliver the 555-passenger largest civil aircraft in January 2007 but the delivery was postponed to January 2011 following delays in the manufacture of the "Big Bird".

The delivery was deferred further to August 2011.

"MAS is expected to receive the aircraft only in April 2012," said Abdul Rahim when winding up the debate on the 10th Malaysia Plan.
