AAWW cancels three 747-8s

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW) has cancelled orders for three of the 12 747-8Fs it has on order. Atlas blamed “lengthy delays and performance considerations” for the cancelled. Boeing was quick to point out that this news is “absolutely unrelated” to Cargolux Airlines International’s decision to delay delivery of its first two aircraft. Atlas said the three 747-8s it rejected had been set to be the first ones it received, starting next month, before Boeing rescheduled them to early 2012 and pulled forward three others that were in better shape. “Though the first airplanes off the line are slightly short of expectations, these early-build models nonetheless will be great airplanes with unparalleled efficiency and low costs,” Boeing’s Proulx said. “We’ll continue to focus on performance improvements that increase the value these airplanes will bring.”
