An engine fault that led to a fire on a Qantas A380 and forced it into an emergency landing will affect deliveries of the superjumbo, Airbus chairman and chief executive Thomas Enders said on Friday.

"I do expect that this event ... will impact deliveries, especially in 2011," because of checks on and recommended replacements to some engines, he told journalists by telephone, without giving a specific figure.

Nevertheless "the reputation of this aircraft will remain untarnished and will even increase in the years ahead," he said.
