Russian lessor VEB-Leasing is planning to sell its contract for four Airbus A380 superjumbos initially intended for now-defunct Transaero Airlines.
The carrier was to become the first operator of the type in Russia, the CIS, and all of Eastern Europe.
Airbus’s recent forecast suggests that the CIS might need around 20 such airliners in the next 20 years. There are no A380 operators in the region so far.
The lessor is unable to give up on the order placed back in 2012, as it has already made a down payment of $237 million.
As a possible alternative, the company is studying the possibility of converting the current order into a more popular aircraft type.

FAA orders all of the entire A380 engines inspections

FAA orders all of the entire A380 engines inspections. Effective immediately.

It´s sad to see a 5.7 years old A380 in this state (not the wheel)...

Still cleaner than Air France planes.

Is the Airbus A380 a dead plane flying?

On which routes would a larger version of the A380 makes sense?

Dubai-London. That's it.

imho if airbus wants to save the program, the only way is to invest massively into a much larger version (aka a380-1000, and skip the -900 or other minor refit versions). this way, the sheer size and capacity of the plane could offet its otherwise economic disadvantage against 2engine jets like 777 etc.
i also believe that there are a lot more routes than only dubai-london where usage of larger planes would make sense.

They'd have to develop new engines for that, likely.

A smarter choice would be to increase efficiency through higher composite use and a better wing design.

I don't think there is a future for the VLA. Yes, demand for air travel is going up but with the 787 and A350, you can now do flights from small underutilized airports to other small underutilized airports far away, skipping the big congested hubs altogether.

Well you could do that before 787 and A350. Nothing new really.

Still, point to point between long distance second tier airports is limited. There is always the problem of lacking frequency and efficiency.

With "hubs and spoke" you can have much higher frequencies even from second and third tier airports.

There is lots of talk about point to point, but IMO hubs like Dubai are the future of aviation.

There's a future for A380.

The media is playing us for a fool. Already, more and more airlines are adopting the 77W, many of which are adopting high range of seats.

In addition, Singapore Airlines, Emirates and ANA, as well as Thai Airways and British Airways are all lying about their intentions. It wouldn't be very sound decision making for SQ and ANA to go for any new A380 if they didn't know that Airbus was planning to refresh the A380.

Furthermore, it appears CA, MU and CZ all have A380 planned in their fleet.

Adding on, the CR929-700 is bigger than the 777X
