With airliner Emirates wanting to drop its next order for the A380 aircraft, it marks an ominous fate for the once poster child aircraft.
The large double decker aircraft was already at risk before the pandemic arose, but now as they look to recovery, airlines recovery plans do not seem to include it.
It’s a spectacular fall from grace for the aircraft. Once heralded as the grand future of passenger flying it now lingers as a lumbering burden.
It’s a pleasure to fly in the aircraft, but the economics just do not back up its use.
