Virgin Atlantic CEO: Decision to cancel A380 order 'not difficult to make'

12 March, 2018

Virgin Atlantic CEO Craig Kreeger commented on the cancellation of the airline's order for six A380 aircraft, stating: "It was not a particularly difficult call to make... It was nice having it as an option in case the world changed in a way that it made sense, but I had not seen a real opportunity for us to acquire those airplanes" (Bloomberg, 09-Mar-2018).
