written by WOFA | December 1, 2009

117Malaysia Airlines’s first A380 delivery has been delayed by eight months, apparently at the request of Airbus.

“We had been informed that the A380s, with the delivery date of January 2011 will commence in August 2011 instead,” Malaysia Airlines CEO and managing director Azmil Zahruddin told Flightglobal.com

MAS has six A380s on order, and despite constant speculation about the order, it says that it is still planning to take the aircraft to replace Boeing 747-400s on high density routes to Europe and possibly Sydney.
