British Airways CEO Says Its Airbus A380s Will ReturnBritish Airways' fleet of 12 Airbus A380s remain grounded, but CEO Sean Doyle says the airline won't join others such as Lufthansa, Air France and likely Etihad which have scuppered the superjumbo. "The A380 isn't flying at the minute but it is in our plans for the future rebuild of the airline," Doyle says. "Exactly when we will put the A380 back into service is something that we’re not clear on." (www.executivetraveller.com) More...

Good for BA. Qantas is another airline that is well suited for the A380 and should bring them back when ready.
Good for BA. Finally one sensible airline. Travel will return. Maybe not at the same levels for a while but it will.
I have always wanted to fly on one...Used to watch those big birds soar out if Frankfurt Flughafen everyday at 14.00 and it was breathtaking. I guess Singapore Airlines will be getting my business as soon as things open up.
It is an amazing aircraft and I am seriously concerned that it became prohibitively more expensive to operate if you don't fill the seats. Emirates are talking about long term storage as an option. The market isn't there. That's why BA parked theirs.
This is good news, as I have never been on one and his may be my only chance to ever fly on one
