Qatar Airways says only half of its A380-fleet might return

Speaking at CAPA Live on 13 January, the CEO of Qatar Airways said that if it resumes operations with the A380, only half of the fleet will return.

The airline has a total of ten A380s of which it said it doesn't expect them to return to service before 2022. Qatar's CEO said that other aircraft like the A350-1000 are much more environmental friendly as well as more efficient to operate.

Qatar Airways took delivery of their first A380 in 2014 and all ten are currently stored at Doha.
