There has been a lot of talk and trends on the market performance or suitability for both the A380 and 747ADV. Apart from the market factors, how will airports ability to accommodate any of these planes ( if the 747ADV is built ) affect their sales? Even though they will occupy different niches will for example the ability of the 747 ADV to fit at more airports than the A380 affect an airline decision to buy either? Maybe an airline will adjust their route structure or aircraft type depending on how these planes can fit at certain airports.

Will landing fees of either plane influence the purchase decision by airliners?

I would have thought that the 747ADV would hold most of the cards in that department. 450 passengers to almost anywhere as against 550 (apparently as few as 500 longhaul) to no more than a couple of dozen airports worldwide.

The 747 itself got off to a slow start when it was introduced, because so many airports needed to carry out capital works to accommodate it.

Almost anywhere? I haven't noticed yet the B747 flies to almost anywhere.

Btw, Singapore Als, one of world's largest B747 operators has already announced to rather misuse the A380 than operating both A380 and B747 Adv.
So much for the "flexibility" argument.

What is a "couple of dozen airports"??? 12? 24? 36? 48? 60?

"Apparently" in your view, you should add. Because there's still no realiable indication anywhere that airlines will not be able to fly more 500 pax on longhaul.
And again for you: there will be airlines with MORE than 500 seats on longhauls. EK will offer different configurations, including 517 and 649 seats. And last time I checked, both 517 and 649 were more than 500...

Similar stuff happening now, right?
