Earlier this week, business wires had started reporting that Emirates was in talks with Airbus over a new order for up to twenty more A380s to be announced by the end of the year so that deliveries would start by 2020.

However, in a statement to Reuters, Emirates said it “regularly engages with aircraft manufacturers for product updates and enhancement of current and future aircraft.”

Emirates is the biggest operator of the A380 with 95 of the type in commercial service and a further 47 on order from Airbus
