Emirates on Thursday said it agreed to buy more A380 jets from Airbus after months of foot-dragging. The deal comes three days after Airbus threatened to end production of its superjumbo passenger jet if it didn't get a deal from the Dubai-based airline soon. Airbus and Emirates characterized their agreement somewhat differently in their news releases.
