    I heard on the radio yesterday that Airbus are going to stop production of the A380 because we're changing the way we want to fly. We no longer want to go from big hub to big hub, but from local airports.

    Yes its a shame, love travelling on the A380 and I am sure it will be around for some time but no two ways about it 2 engined wide bodied aircraft are more efficient and flexible.

    It is reported that it will continue in production until 2021 when the last Emirates order is fulfilled. I was reading a piece that said that with the cost of landing fees and fuel it is now more cost effective to fly two A330 or A350s on a route than one A380!!
