Is Airbus officially making an A380-900 and 1000?

Ive seen some virtualy phots of the A380-1000 and 900 but is this a hoax. Is airbus really making those??

I think so. I heard that Kingfisher and Cathay want to order it.

I Hope A380-900 -1000 are revamped designs from A388. Since It Could be Wasting Money if Both Planes are Bigger Than A388. And A388 Haven’t recieved any Orders since 2014

I know Emirates are keen for an A380 NEO! :) ;)

going a little off topic here: All this “neo’ing” is getting ridicoulus. The A330neo for instance. why didn’t they derate the A358. It’s a clean sheet design with the newest technology. Instead they re engine a plane with a 90’s tube. For the A380: the neo is coming too soon imo

Kingfisher… They ceased operations in 2013. I remeber going on one of their flights in India at that time. Wikipedia says so.

Kingfisher canceled their A388 order so if the -800 is too much for them, the -900 or -1000 would be wayyy too big.

Heck, Kingfisher has ceased operations.

Here’s my understanding of the future of the A380 program:

The current airplane is the A380-800.

EK and possibly SQ are interested in an A380neo/A380-800neo: Longer range, better fuel efficiency.

EK and possibly other airlines are interested in an A380-900neo: Stretched version of the A380neo.

Never heard a word spoken about the A380-1000 though.

The -800neo and -900neo are still proposals and have yet to be confirmed but very recently, Airbus has promised that they’d improve the A380-800’s efficiency somehow by 202? (year??).

This was originally planned but I doubt it now as the demand for Super Heavy aircraft is on a down right now. :smile:

Is there a market for it? Not counting the Middle East carriers.
