It seems Fedex is the first company that took the currage to cancel their order and switched to Boeing
PARIS - Boeing scored a victory in the airliner wars Tuesday when FedEx became the first customer to cancel an order for Airbus's much delayed A380
jumbo jets and said it will instead will buy Boeing 777s.
FedEx Corp., the world's largest express transportation company, cited production delays for its decision to retract an order for 10 of the new
double-decker A380's. Its FedEx Express unit has ordered 15 Boeing Co. 777 freighters with a list price of $3.5 billion (2.8 billion euros) and taken
options on an additional 15.
The A380 cancellations leave just 15 superjumbo freighter orders on the Airbus books — from United Parcel Service Inc. and International Lease
Finance Corp. — and a further 142 orders for the plane's passenger version.

Will Fedex set an example and will many following soon? This will be defenetly a kick in the stomach for Airbus.
