Default Next airline to phase out the A380 -german article

https://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/lu...7-19271916283b (german article)

Whoa, that is fast... Maybe all A380s get retired before the 747 does. I think nobody has foreseen this.

ps: to say te 380 never was the most profitable airliner is pretty weak of LH. Not a single airline except EK wanted Airbus to do the A380NEO. The NEO would have been the next logical step between the -800 and the -900. No manufacturer can survive at the market with an airliner without developing new derivatives of it for 14/15 years. That won't work - seems like the 380 has been a multi-bllion dollar grave right from the beginning.

Last line of the article: "The first (A380) copies have already been dismantled and butchered." This refers to the two retired Singapore planes, and 'dismantled and butchered' is harsh, but cold and accurate. Sad, Doug
