They have a huge fleet of planes .... but the real question is. With all the seating capacity, do they turn a profit?

I highly doubt every single 380 flight is packed? Since its city or country owned airliner. I guess money doesnt matter

Impressive indeed, even though the consumer wins the legacy carriers struggle to compete having to either compete, or go bust.

Please read the facts before making such bold statements...

The financial year ending 31st March 2014 saw the Group achieve its 26th consecutive year of profit in a financial year marked by record increases in capacity and significant business investments across the Group.

However they are running out space incredibly fast both on the ground and in the air. Parking 140 A380s is a tall order. And filling them is another problem. DWC is an option but Emirates doesn't load passengers from there and therefore their A380s will have to make the short hop to DXB.

DWC is more important than ever.

Yup you saw the daily Lufthansa flight from FRA and the daily Emirates flight from Dubai.

Probably a fling demonstration of one of Emirates A380 and possibly Airbus trying to get more interest from possible customers for the A380NEO and Boeing trying to get more customers for the 737MAX and the 777X program and more orders for other aircraft. and Lots of flying displays.

The AF flight to CDG should have also been an A380, but I saw it with a B772 instead.

Would an A380neo feature A350-style 'hockey stick'-style wingtips?

That is a good question.

The new wingtips on the A330neo increased the wingspan by 4 meters over the current A330. This kind of increase is not possible on the A380 as it already has a very wide maxed out wingspan. Making the plane even wider will mean another string of investments by Airports to make them A380neo ready. That is something that Airbus wants to avoid at all costs, it will hurt the possible sales dramatically.

This means that the A380neo will only have such winglets if it's possible to redesign the wing without increasing the wingspan. That could mean a costly big structural change to the wings. This will only be done if the fuel burn improvements by the winglets are large enough to make it economically feasible. And also the simple of how much money Airbus wants to invest into the neo?

In other words, it might get the A350 style winglets, but it's far from a certainty yet.

Thanks for your response.

I agree that they can't afford to increase the overall wingspan. So if A350-style winglets aren't possible, then maybe A320neo style ones are?

They actually could be possible if the wings were folding like on the 777-8/9.
