Airbus to scrap A380 superjumbo jet production in 2021 due to delivery costs and low sales. CFRA Equity Analyst Jim Corridore breaks it down to Yahoo Finance's Julie Hyman and Adam Shapiro.
NASA said on Friday it was weighing an option to buy two additional astronaut seats aboard a Russian rocket as a contingency plan against further delays in the launch systems being developed by Elon Musk's SpaceX and Boeing Co. A possible purchase "provides flexibility and back-up capability" as the companies build rocket-and-capsule launch systems to return astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) from U.S. soil for the first time since NASA's Space Shuttle program went dark in 2011.
One of the aerospace industry's top analysts suggested such a move was like "Armageddon" for jet engine makers.

A possible purchase "provides flexibility and back-up capability" as the companies build rocket-and-capsule launch systems to return astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) from U.S. soil for the first time since NASA's Space Shuttle program went dark in 2011. The U.S. space agency has since had to rely on Russia's Roscosmos program to ferry astronauts to the orbital space station at a cost of roughly $80 million per seat, NASA has said.
This is not the first time the two rocket firms have had a rivalry over contracts and the price of launches.
Three supersonic jet makers are racing to deliver the ultra-fast travel option to market, and Boeing’s recent entry into the sector could accelerate the competition.
The United States led a rise in Western defence spending in 2018 as it moved to keep ahead of Chinese and Russian pushes into advanced military technology, a report said on Friday. Worldwide outlays on weapons and defence rose 1.8 percent to more than $1.67 trillion in 2018 - with the United States on its own responsible for almost half that increase, according to "The Military Balance" report released at the Munich Security Conference. Western powers were concerned about Russia's upgrades of air bases and air defence systems in Crimea - the peninsula it seized from Ukraine in 2014, the annual report said.
WASHINGTON/HANOI (Reuters) - Vietnamese airlines will be able to fly to the United States and codeshare with American carriers after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration declared the Southeast Asian country complies with international safety standards. The U.S. aviation safety agency said in a statement late on Thursday that it was awarding Vietnam a "Category 1" rating, two weeks after Reuters reported the decision was expected. "It's recognition by a very developed aviation authority which requires a very high standard of safety and security," Vietnamese Deputy Transportation Minister Nguyen Ngoc Dong told Reuters on Friday.
Last year, CoMotion was awarded 29 of the total 108 patents awarded to the University of Washington by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, but patenting ideas at universities is not easy when up against behemoths like Amazon, Microsoft and Boeing.
The low-fare long-haul carrier is adding a second route from the Windy City, a market it first entered in the spring of 2018.
Airbus's decision to shut production of the A380 looks set to reignite a translatlantic trade row over mutual claims of illegal aircraft subsidies, even as Airbus implements a two-year plan to stop making the world's largest airliner. The planemaker announced the shutdown on Thursday due to weak sales, eliminating a model at the heart of a record trade dispute between the European Union and United States over government support for Airbus and its U.S. rival Boeing. After 15 years and thousands of pages of arguments, the two sides are locked in arbitration proceedings at the Geneva-based World Trade Organization to determine the amount of harm each has caused through support, a possible precursor to sanctions.
There is something annoying about the otherwise cool job of designing airplanes: You want to build them bigger and faster, but buyers just want boring efficiency gains. On Thursday, Airbus conceded defeat and announced the end of the A380, the largest commercial liner ever built. The double-decker, 555-seat A380 may seem young, but efforts to design it started as far back as 1988, when the company’s rival Boeing was reigning supreme with its 747 jumbo jet, famous for its humped upper deck.
When Airbus SE rolled out plans in 2000 to build the world’s biggest passenger jet—a 555-seat “super jumbo”—skeptics warned it would be too heavy, too tall and too long for many airports. Officials at the world’s biggest hubs scrambled to upgrade facilities to accommodate the behemoth. Airbus said Thursday it would stop making the A380 in 2021, after orders dried up and some of the plane’s biggest early fans backtracked on commitments.
SpaceX has filed a protest to the U.S. Government Accountability Office challenging NASA’s choice of Centennial-based United Launch Alliance to launch an ambitious, 12-year space research mission called Lucy. Elon Musk’s SpaceX filed the bid protest this week, seeking to get NASA’s $148 million launch contract award reversed, saying its bid for the Lucy mission in October 2021 was far cheaper than ULA’s price. It’s the first the Hawthorne, California-based has protested a NASA launch contract award.
Airbus announced Tuesday that it would end production of its superjumbo A380 and stop delivery in 2021 after it renegotiated a deal with Emirates, the largest A380 customer.
The Windy City has only recently gotten any regularly-scheduled flights that operate with the distinctive — and spacious — four-engine jet.
Wichita-based A380 supplier Spirit AeroSystems Inc. also says employment won't be affected at its plant in Prestwick, Scotland.
NASA is focused on utilizing partnerships with companies like SpaceX and Boeing, rather than contracting and operating the rockets and spacecraft itself. Administrator Jim Bridenstine told CNBC it is not certain SpaceX will launch humans before Boeing for the Commercial Crew program. The U.S. government is relying more than ever on private companies to explore and develop technology in space, whether its reaching the International Space Station, returning to the surface of the moon or getting humans to Mars for the first time.
