Also a year ago Emirates wanted more A380s and wanted Airbus to build an A380Neo and now they are starting to get rid of them lol.

Tim Clark is in trouble with costly A380s and looks for someone to blame for his bleeding airline.

Winter is coming for inflated Gulf carriers, except Qatar Airways. CEO Al-Baker is a smart businessman.

Keep the jets, retire Clark instead.

They have more yet to be delivered..it should have been designated E380 since it seems Emirates was the only airline who "fell in love" with the beast.

Their business model is at risk from airlines flying point to point. Work has halted on the new airport and he is now looking at twins. They have not exactly rushed at picking up more 380's
