Airbus flight-test managers are questioning the validity of data on which the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) based its recommendations to greatly increase separation distances for the A380. Now Airbus wants to make a direct comparison between the A380 and the 747/777/A340. Could this have something to do with Lufthansa wanting to now look at the 747-8 ?

Quoting AeroPiggot (Thread starter):

Why would it?

Well the number of A380 flights from a given airport could be adversely affected with increase separation requirements. Lufthansa has voiced concern about this in the past, so I ask the question: are they hedging just in case the A380 requirements, resulted in a reduction in flight operations at a given airport.
