Grupo Marsan Joins With BA in Dead Whale Boogaloo

We're informed that Grupo Marsan, a Spanish travel and tour operator has popped (or at least intends to pop) for 4 A380s. To add to BA's 12, that's 16 for the year which is pretty close to John Leahy's prediction of 20 planes and two new customers this year.

The question's got to be on the minds of many: is this going to save the A380 or is it going to be like its counterpart rolling through the streets of Taipei a few years back?
I mean, with an 18 billion dollar development overload and commitments for what, 180 at most, they're about 1/3 of the way to breaking even.
