Every new route that has been added will end up being at the expense of a previous route.
Agreed, although keeping in mind that ongoing traveling restrictions in some places are allowing near complete return of capacity elsewhere alongside new capacity. For example, all that China capacity, including multiple dailies to Hong Kong that are unlikely to return anytime soon, is going elsewhere. Other Asian markets like Japan and Thailand have only started to open up, meaning that capacity is still being diverted elsewhere. There is a big network realignment going on.
But yes, down 6x B747-400s (permanently) still down 8x A380s and 1x A330-200 (excluding the short haul -200s).
