the ones that don't buy it will benefit the most.....  Big grin

After that will be the ones that will use the longest haul/highest load factors, such as Emirates, Singapore and Qantas, on their routes from Europe and US to home stations, if they can get enough people to ride at the same time. This airplane will encounter some resistance by airports and communities that do not want the added expense of modifying their airports for a limited use airplane that will operate in low numbers. It will also be prohibitively expensive to operate with low load factors, so airlines are probably considering this when making purchase decisions. They are alos probably taking into consideration that waiting areas, ticketing desks, gate agents and other support functions will taxed heavily in their efforts to support this aircraft, and they have to consider those costs when they could have two different a/c making the same run, both loaded, and offering people more choices as to departure/arrival times, as well as allowing the airports to continue to run without creating a traffic bottleneck whenever the A-380 is in.
