My question is, instead of removing the floor, maybe an make it an 3 decks of cargo, for amazon, for heaviest item, they can keep it loaded in the cargo deck. And maybe load large but lighter items on the 2 decks that was for passengers. As much as I dislike the A380, it’s kinda sad to see them die without an 2nd chance in life after only maybe 9-12 years of service.

I imagine too much reinforcement would be needed to make it a economically sound idea? Just throwing the idea out there..
