They cite cost differences for buying the F-15X

 

You mean the part where they won't take money from the F-35 to buy F-15X?

   The newspaper "Kommersant" in the article by Ivan Safronov "Sukhoi aircraft firmly settled in India. Delhi has been buying 18 more fighter assembly kits” writes that India may purchase additional kits for assembling Su-30MKI fighter jets on its territory from 2020. The fact of receiving the relevant application was confirmed yesterday by the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC). According to unofficial information, we are talking about 18 sets with a total cost of over $ 1 billion. This purchase will allow the Indian military to increase the number of fighter squadrons of the Air Force equipped with this type of aircraft to 14. In turn, the Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAP) export orders will load capacity to the start of mass production of the civil airliner MS-21.

The A380 is ceasing production in 2021; https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/02/citing-lack-of-demand-airbus-cancels-a380-superjumbo-aircraft/

 

In general, things have been trending away from large airliners, the 747-8 is still only barely alive, plus mid-sized birds like the 767, 777, and A330 are more capable than previous twins.
