DL’s 777 fleet is not old, average age of almost 13 years. Will be around for many years to come.

An -8% PIP, sharklets and low passenger count (<400) brings an A380 a long way. I would prefer the spacey & quiet cabin of the A380 on real long flights. A380s already do ULH flights as we speak & fleet /cockpit commonality would be very good :wink2: https://uk.flightaware.com/live/flight/U...

Aircraft seems to be operating with all 4 engines so in this case it would not apply, however I'm unsure of that ceiling. I think it would be dependent on weight and I don't think it would be too far off of a normal 4 engine cruise.
