What went wrong with the A380?

Akbar Al Baker always wanted to get rid of the A380s. Etihad is a basket case, so I don’t think we’ll see them operating A380s anytime soon.

Really interesting post, learned a lot! Thanks for posting, @Louis!


I never liked the A380 at all.

exactly how I feel.
One of the most unique aircraft ever, sad to see it go.

That’s true.

However Etihad Airways has announced the resumption of A380 flights In July. ( Subject To Change )

Al Baker on the other hand for Qatar Airways, he said that they’ll be grounded for a year.

I don’t think QR will get rid of the A380s that soon, as they have at least 4 of them at the age of only 2 years! 🤔

Qatar Airways A380s don’t have the Qsuite. 🙂
( due to limited space In the upper deck )

The Qsuites are only found on all variants of A350 & B777 aircraft.

A380s have always looked too “bubbly” to me.

That being said very well written post.
