‘Malaysia Airlines to get rid of all A380s’

Malaysia Airlines reportedly is looking into selling all of its 6 Airbus A380s, plus two Boeing 747-400Fs, four A330-200Fs and four Boeing 777-200ERs. The airline already was in financial dire straits even before the dreadful year that was 2014, with both the MH370 and MH17 tragedies.

It would mark the first time A380s become available on the used market, many years before it was anticipated. It is uncertain which airline would take these giants, if any airline at all. Airbus currently has problems of its own selling new A380s. Malaysia Airlines took delivery of its first A380 only three years ago.

The measures would mean the end for MASCargo and the end for many of Malaysia Airlines’ intercontinental passenger flights.
