As Qantas Airways took delivery of its first Airbus A380 on Sunday, the company's chief executive said he may want to increase his current order for 20 of the 450-seat super jumbos. Though the plane arrived two years behind schedule, Qantas plans to take delivery of two more A380s by the end of the year. CEO Geoff Dixon said any additional orders would have to fit within the $27.9 billion capital spending budget.
