Memo to Self: Some Customers Are More Expensive Than Sales

It's reported that Thai Airways is going to maintain its order for six A380 large wide body aircraft, and that Thai has scored an extra $10 million per copy discount on 8 A330-300 airliners as fallout from the A380 meltdown.

And it doesn't end there. According to Thai Airways, the compensation for late deliveries story doesn't end there. Further talks on the subject are requested.

I away clear profit made on one product line to bankroll your defalcations in another strikes me as the very legerdemain. Keeping the customers from bolting en masse is proving to be a very expensive project for Toulouse.

Stay tuned.
