Production of Airbus A380s could soon be halted has demand for the superjumbo is dwindling.
Airbus is likely to give an update with its full-year earning on February 14, according to industry sources and analysts.
The move to shut production of the A380 coincides with a review of purchases by Emirates, which has a fleet of 109 superjumbos and 53 left on order.
Under a proposed reshuffle, Airbus may broker a deal that would see Emirates switch part of its order to smaller models such as the A350 or A330, while producing a few last-minute A380 orders from British Airways.
Qantas formally cancelled its longstanding order for eight more superjumbos in early February.
Airbus is holding a press conference to discuss the 2018 financial results at 9.45am Central European Time (CET), on February 14.
At the conference, Airbus could be providing some clarity on its plans.
