European plane maker Airbus is reviewing the delivery schedule of its flagship A380 superjumbo jet and its most important client Emirates said it had been told to expect new delays. Airbus chief executive Thomas Enders said he was running "a major review" of the A380 production programme, which has already suffered three delays and generated billion of dollars in cost overruns.

QANTAS says it has yet to be told of any further production delays affecting the delivery of its double-decker A380s, despite speculation that more announcements are on their way from European manufacturer Airbus. The carrier confirmed yesterday it had received a letter from Airbus chief executive Tom Enders telling it that a review of the program was under way.

It was up, up and away for the flying kangaroo's new super jet yesterday as Qantas Airlines' first Airbus A380 effortlessly climbed into the skies above the French city of Toulouse, en route to an interior fitout in Germany.

The double-decker A380, which has a wingspan almost as large as a football field, will be named Nancy Bird Walton after the sprightly 92-year-old aviatrix.
