Perhaps a few, instead of aging in the desert sun, could be converted to Flying Hospitals, similar to the ORBIS DC10. Although the A380 is a larger aircraft, it can still technically land at up to 400 airports.

You might want to check out 'Jumbostay'. It is a totally unusual hostel at Sweden's Stockholm Arlanda Airport, there guests can sleep in an original Boeing 747.

Simply too few airports can handle it for it to be an effective choice. Bad times make such things obvious.

Not really. Aluminum recycles, the avionics can be used elsewhere. Best thing is for Airbus and the airlines to learn what works and what don't work. Planes that 99% of airports can't handle don't work.
