So what is the current list of EK A380 destinations? LHR, YYZ, ICN, SYD, CDG...
Note DXB-SYD continues to AKL daily.
JED to start 4x weekly from 28th Mar and to increase to daily from 2nd Jun (source: EK's timetable). This is undoubtedly due to bi-lateral restrictions and demand, hence the requirement for a higher-capacity aircraft at the same frequency. Likewise with YYZ: here, EK can't operate more than 3x weekly in each direction. Because of this restriction and demand, it operates the 380.
