Alan - you are in for a treat when you manage to travel on one. They are the greatest plane ever for passenger comfort. Incredibly quiet and very stable.

Just a shame that they did not quite fit the needs of many airlines who wanted smaller aircraft and increased frequency on routes.
But a great flying experience as a passenger. Enjoy!
Fantastic. But too early to celebrate

Love to see it.

I have never been aboard one of these monsters and I thought the climate Dreaded Meanies might succeed in keeping it that way but common sense must be prevailing.

What does climate have to do with anything? When the A380 gets retired it’ll be because of economics. Capitalism is a far more efficient killer than hippies. It ended American’s 757s, Delta’s MDs, and most airlines’ 747-400s. And you can be sure that sooner or later the bean counters will come for the A380 too.
