Thanks. Yes I did fly on it with the penultimate livery. But couldn't resist in its present colors.

Don't know. What airlines aside from Emirate and Lufthansa still fly them? I did have the G200 A380 with the livery before this, but sold it. Only 1:200 A380 I have is the British Airways.

What’s interesting is DLH has more B748s than A388s.

Awesome model!! I have mine on preorder and should be arriving soon. Can't wait to add her next to my other Lufthansa heavies.

There's roughly about 15 other airlines I believe that still operate the A380 today, with ANA and HiFly as their newest operators.
