ILFC Defers A380 Order, Dumps Freighters

Flight International is reporting this morning that ILFC, the aircraft leasing giant headed up by outspoken Steven Udvar-Hazy, has decided to defer its order for 10 A380s until 2013-14 and decided it wants no part of the A380F, instead choosing the passenger version.
If you were looking for a vote of confidence in the A380F program, this isn't it. Apropos of this is the Yogi Berra-ism "People are staying away in droves."

Stay tuned. We may hear from UPS soon.
