should really get A380 for this sector (assuming they don't need A380 for other routes, unlikely as JNB
can use couple of them too) since they have some sort of alliance, a joint order and shared maintenance would work out very well.
My brother flew BA
, got bumped, and got seat in the last min before dept (this was Sept BTW, I can't imagine Xmas booking), there's still market for additional flights/capacity. At current capacity BA
will need 4 A380, CX
will need 6 to replace current fleet .
