Airbus may have to push back the planned October launch of the A350 until the end of the year, or maybe even into next year.
There is no problem with this aircraft but at least one major A380 customer has asked Airbus to slow down the A350 while more engineering resources
are diverted to sorting that aircrafts problems.
Naturally Airbus is reluctant to do this as it would extend the lead of the 787 still further but id the required technical solutions on the A380 line
aren't found soon they may have no choice.
