    Only the 777- 300ER has the new first suite with doors and only 8 seats in the cabin, much better than the 14 seat cabin. I flew on it to MLE recently and am due to fly it again to JNB in September.

    Lufthansa will also retrofit the A380 with a new business class but different from Allegris. I expect the planes to fly longer too.

    Ok, rowing back on my previous comment at pace, we have the following airlines who will probably / possibly be operating the A380 on 1st Jan 2030.

    Emirates, BA, Qantas, Lufthansa, Etihad and, of course, our friends at Global.

    Hi BOTP – I would also include Singapore in your listing as well. I cannot see them being retired anytime soon from their fleet.

    Well, I was referring to 1st Jan 2030 and I would be surprised if Singapore Airlines was still operating the A380 then.

    Hello BOTP – one airline you omitted was Japan’s ANA.

    ANA took delivery of three of the final A380s manufactured by Airbus.

    They have a premium configuration despite being deployed on the Honolulu route.

    In years to come I would not be surprised to see ANA operating them to Europe or USA.

    I’m prepared to be proved wrong (in 6 years time!) but ANA is another airline that I don’t think will be operating the A380 on 1st January 2030.

    Again, I have absolutely nothing to back that up. Just my thoughts.

    BOTP/Olneyflyer/Alex/Lets fly now – suggest your suggestions and thoughts above would add to the interesting A380 discussion cwoodward started

    Is there a major revival of interest in the A380 ?

    There is indeed a degree of duplication on this forum….especially when it comes to BA!
