One issue from the likely massive volume of retirements from the Covid-19 pandemic will be the sharply declining values of parts and of scrap metal. That could mean some WFU aircraft could waiting for a long time before scrapping/parting out waiting for values to go up.
As to the A380, I think early production models will be retired and scrapped due to their particular issues, although many will be retained until tax/depreciation can be written down and perhaps using some to replace smaller aircraft and less frequency.
The opposite will happen, less risk with frequency and customers pay a premium for flying when they want to.
The A380 had too few cities it could profitably serve when this started. JFK, LAX, SYD, PEK, PVG, HKG, SFO, and few others for others than EK.
LH down to 6 of 10. If not filled to LAX and JFK, where?
AF in process of dropping to 5 from 10 anyway.
BA is heavily dependent on JFK, HKG, and LAX to fill A380s. Until those markets and China recovers, BA will continue to park A380s.
EK has the bulk of the fleet. Traffic has to grow enough to once again allow A380 to A380 connections. I think there will be a step down in demand. I do not predict an end to either EK or the A380, but the rate of retirement will be increased.
I could see EK parking a batch and returning them to service. This doesn't bode well for the 779 demand.
I see customers asking for a delay in EIS.
Flu+Covid19 is bad. Consider a flu vaccine, if not for yourself, to protect someone you care about.
