Etihad Airways Completely Removes The A380 From It’s Schedule
Today we get some very sad news from Etihad Airways, they are officially removing the largest passenger jet ever made, the Airbus A380 from service. They have not announced this is totally permanent yet, but this means that we won’t be seeing their fleet for at least the next few years. This also means that the residence may never fly again. The residence is the largest “hotel” in the sky. It is sold as a seat, but it could cost up to $30,000, and it comes with multiple rooms. This is really sad news deviation of the street, and I hope to see the A380 back in the fleet soon.

Quote From One Mile At A Time:
We don’t definitively know what will happen to these planes, though it does increasingly seem like Etihad’s A380s may not be returning at all, or if they do, that it would happen way in the future.
