    I'm sure Airbus is counting on this connection to pay off or maybe this is the payoff.

    I think the A380's would have made a good addition but since UPS went with the 747-400's after cancelling the Airbus order then they would be better off staying with a single jumbo aircraft type. With the 747-8 going into production soon I would think that as airlines receive them then they would start retiring their 747-400's which gives UPS the opportunity for cheap planes just as the economy (hopefully) starts recovering. But with UPS's 757 fleet nearing the 25 year old mark then maybe UPS looks at the A320neo instead.
