Qatar has 4 more A380s on order, and ORD seems to be one of their best performing US destinations. AA codeshares on the route, and they provide massive feed. I took the route in April and both inbound and outbound flights were completely full. DOT data also suggests that load factors are consistently high. I don't know what Emirates LFs are for ORD, but I guess they can make the whale work anywhere.
Call me crazy, but I certainly hope QR brings the A380 to ORD.
