Doric Asset Finance hits out at A380 wing cracks


Doric Asset Finance, the largest manager of leased A380 aircraft, has complained about Airbus’s communication strategy regarding the wing cracks found in the aircraft.

“Airbus probably could do a lot more anticipating issues than letting armchair engineers do all the talking,” said Mark Lapidus, managing director of Doric Asset Finance.

EASA has ruled that all operators of A380s must carry out Airbus-sanctioned checks and preliminary repairs on every plane before its 1,300th flight – Doric expects more ADs to be issued that probably involves “replacing some of the 7449 alloy brackets with 7010 alloy brackets, that are also plentiful in the wing and have not developed any cracks”.
