Etihad may retire its 10 A380s early with them potentially never returning to service after the virus outbreak grounded the airline’s passenger flights in March, the sources said. Etihad is also considering whether to operate the A350-1000, the sources said. They said the airline was expected to make a decision on the fate of the two Airbus wide-bodies soon.

So in the past week:
- Emirates rumored to retire 40% of A380 fleet
- Emirates in talks to cancel 5 A380 orders
- Air France retires entire fleet
- Lufthansa slashes A380 flights from Frankfurt.
Possibly the worst ever week for the A380?
