"Imagine that we find a suitable used, relatively new A380 whose owners don't want any more – think Malaysian, think Emirates, think Lufthansa," says BA CEO Cruz. "Imagine they give it to us at a really reasonable price. Everything breaks down the moment you start thinking about the inside of the aircraft."

 

MH go give it to them at a price they cannot refuse,after all its accumulating dust at klia..Anyone from MH management here?

if they wanna give it they can only offer them in 2021. All 6 frames have already been contract signed for 4x daily haj and umrah to Madinah and Jeddah in the coming months. There were suppose to sub some LHR routes for a few months have also been scrapped due to charter ops.

The article clearly stated the nil possibility of this (BA to operate more A380) is going to happen.

 

BA basically wanted some used A380 for free and even then it still making a fuss about the cost of refurbishing it. 

 

Cruz says the cost to reconfigure the cabin to BA's specifications "can run to between $30-50 million" per aircraft. "To put that into a lease rate, all of a sudden it takes the aircraft completely out of the market."

 

It won't happen.

I doubt BA were really that serious about getting more A380s - they should know that limited production aircraft will never have the economies of scale like the A320/B737. They just used it to extract a sweet deal from Boeing.

Actually MH did talk to BA some time ago (2018) about the A380s. Never able to agree on a deal.
