TOULOUSE (Reuters) - The head of planemaker Airbus (AIR.PA) said it was leaning towards raising output of its best-selling A320 model, but stressed no decision had been taken.

“We are inclined to go but we will go when we believe we have a market and have clear commitments from main suppliers,” Fabrice Bregier, chief executive of the main unit of Airbus Group, told a news briefing.

    “There is more upside than downside,” he added.

    He said Airbus was still studying whether there was a business case in revamping the A380 superjumbo with new engines, as requested by its largest customer Emirates [EMIRA.UL].
