Airbus will make profit from the A380 in 2014 or 2015
Airbus will make a "profit" in accounting terms. It needs to deliver 450 planes to make a true Profit on the a380. The b787 will make a Profit after it delivers 1100 planes. The b787 has over 800 orders and will need 25% more orders to turn a profit (when it delivers the planes). Airbus needs 40% more orders to turn the profit.
