As flagged, Airbus (EADSF) has received an order for 50 A380 superjumbos from Emirates at the Dubai Air Show.

Reuters tweets: "Emirates chairman quizzed by dazed journalists on how much today's orders cost in total - 'I don't have my calculator with me,' he replies." Emirates is also acquiring 150 Boeing 777Xs with an option for 50 more.

Emirates now has bookings for 140 A380s. It's an "unheard of dependence of an aircraft from one customer," tweets Aviation Week's Jens Flotau.

Update: the A380 deal is worth $23B at list prices.
