I've never caught an A380 yet either. I assumed for a long time that they would be around for a long time and that I'd get plenty of chances, but that one is also slipping away from me.
When AF was still flying 343s and 388s I tried a few times to create itineraries to get both in one trip to Europe, but I could never quite make it work with a competitive fare price. My job changed, and I haven't been to Europe now in over 6 years... Not sure when I'll get another good chance to grab one of these.
Of course there are many classic models that I would like to experience, but most of those were never realistic for me.

None of the oldies - I've long been a nervous flyer, btu I've toured many.
