"Project fear" coming from the Airbus CEO directly. And talking on a 10+ year timescale. Nothing remotely to do with the A380 decision, despite Loz's and your attempt to link it.

I think itís probably down to the demand, itís a big plane, requires big runways, airlines then need to invest in maintenance facilities large enough to operate in n the plane. They did say initially in the face of Brexit uncertainty they would move wing production. I guess with global economic uncertainty added by the prospect of the UK leaving the EU. Airlines were not so keen to burden the cost. I am not sure but the Boeing Dreamliner is probably picking up more business in the large plane department.
