Lufthansa Compensates for Late A380

Lufthansa announced yesterday that they are placing an order for 5 A330 to "compensate for the delayed entry into service of the A380,". To me this lends credence to the persistant rumor that additional A380 delays are going to be announced after EADS completes its audit. The A330 will be delivered in 2007 and 2008 to service routes that Lufthansa has planned to handle with the A380.
