Originally, Lufthansa had been scheduled to take delivery of the first of a total 15 A380 jets in autumn 2007.
But then an initial delay set back the delivery date to the beginning of 2008.
'We're in close negotiations with Airbus. But they haven't given us any more details on the delivery timetable so far,' the spokesman said.
Lufthansa would still be the first European airline to have an A380 in service, he added. firstname.lastname@example.org afp/cml COPYRIGHT Copyright AFX News Limited 2005. All rights reserved.
