Airbus Delivers First A380 in the U.S. to FedEx

For a company infinitely interested in shaving minutes, the A380 is a bonanza, zapping hours off transcontinental flights.

Airbus has 159 firm orders for the A380, including 27 freighters. UPS confirmed in December that it is purchasing 10 A380s.

"We didn't suspect UPS would be sitting on the sidelines too long," Bronczek said. "But we're going to have the lead on them, of course."
