    "Yanks" know that Airbus build much better/safer aircraft's, which are a challenge to Boeing, so their major airlines do not wish to be part of the proud super Airbus 380 aircraft...Jealousy / sour grapes / politically motivated policies!

    I think American Airlines and Delta liveries would look good on A-380.

    if it aint a Boeing they wont buy it cos its un-American to buy anything that aint a Boeing. A good example was the Concord. WE! aint got one of those and it aint got Boing stamped on the side so we are going to BAN it until we can build one of our own. So you've got no chance . Sell your superior aircraft to the rest of the world and forget the Yanks cos they aint goner buy em and leave them play catch up because aviation technology wise like it or not they have always been one step behind Europe [Brits]. Don't get me wrong I love America and the American but the truths the truth amen [wright brothers exempt]

    It is a question cost-benefit analysis!. In their wisdom born on long experience in running airlines,it was clear to US Aircraft carriers, that A-380 is a white elephant and a loser too!.It was fit only for the dollar- oil rich Middle East Arabs who have no conception of Economic forces and much less care whether the airlines runs profitable or not!.

    bottom line U.S. carriers are cheap as hell, that is the reason they didn't order them. The infrastructure to most airports were an issue but upgrades had to be done nonetheless. They pack them in like sardines, if they could have you stand they would. I worked for UAL and those flight from the west coast to Hawaii are jam packed, they used to be all 747s and every single seat would be full, but the bean counters don't like paying for 4 engine aircraft when you have 2 engine aircraft. As for the training, you think the legacy carriers actually work on aircraft they've ordered in the last 10 years? Nope UAL doesn't, its all farmed out.

    Because American money men will not allow it to happen under government pressure. They stopped anyone buying the Brabazon back in the day and said we need a smaller faster more elite plane like the supersonic one they were building. They failed and Concorde did not. American Airlines wanted it but again. If the yanks can’t build it you can’t have it. So green with envy they refused to allow American Airlines the funds.?

    It's never the airplane but ALWAYS the pilots when an Airbus crashes. That is the morbid and cruel mindset of the biggest bastards, Airbus, in the airline industry! WHY would any American airline want to subject itself and it's employees to this kind of anal logic especially with a plane that was already on it's way out, like the dinosaurs, before the first one ever flew?

    Airlines can easily overbook their seats with no fear of running out of those seats with an A380.

    Another point is that American carriers have no geopolitical incentive to support the A380. The plane was ultimately built not because the 747 replacement market was huge but to prove that Airbus and the EU could build a bigger plane than Boeing, and to keep major European carriers at the center of global aviation. With the A380, Airbus succeeded at outmatching the 747, but they failed at preserving British Airways', Air France-KLM, and Lufthansa's market dominance. Emirates used the A380 for the opposite purpose intended, while the A330-200 and 787 unraveled the hub-and-spoke model for the largest carriers. Most American carriers looked to Boeing for the future of intercontinental travel, and they saw the 777 and 787 as better options for maintaining and expanding routes to the US than the A380. And with European carriers able to replace their oldest A340s and 777-200s with the A350-900, there's no incentive for them to continue supporting the A380, either.

    Grow up DJ! There is only ONE reason: Racism! Yep the yanks lost the supersonic time to the Europeans. The long term future are long (80m) twin jets made from plastic. (composites) Any airport like Honolulu is going to be sorry to blow money set to idle in future. Aircraft makers are going to farm out component making. Plastic planes are more quiet and versatile. No point to talk up limited time slots to squeeze in an A380 only to find after it takes off no other plane want to be in that wake and just waits so much longer. No time saved. Congested ground? The new 777 flick up wing is going to address the issue!

    A good analysis . A380 is passenger friendly as the flight has 4 engines and safety is assured. But large Boeing air crafts have only 2 engines, may be fuel efficient. Now, your narrations do he lp us understand more about aircrafts.

    Airbus was ready to stop producing that big large Airbus a few months ago and then the Boeing crashing story happened . Now airlines are practically forced to purchase Airbus airplanes. Either Airbus did something on purpose so beoing get in trouble , or boieing itself was producing bad quality planes

    maxcap on a 380 is actually past 800, but that's an extremen choice and not for long haul. BTW: did you note all the air lines that went for the Airbus Super are renowned for their Quality Of Service.. as opposed to certain big US carriers. Just saying.

  37. Yesnoyeswait

    A380 was a mistake from Airbus for sure. Thankfully they have other great models, and lets just say that this new Boeing MAX8 scandal is a lottery win for Airbus. Nobody wants to order MAX8 anymore. Airbus 320neo is the model that every big flycompany wants. In future, Boeing might take back their place, but it will take time.

  53. James Koralewski

    James KoralewskiMonth ago

    Because the U.S. carriers are smart. It's only wise to own an A380 or a B747 if you can keep the planes full of passengers and cargo. If you can't, and they aren't, the airline takes a loss on every flight they don't fill. I read today that Airbus is going to stop making the A380 in 2021.

    American, United and Delta prefer high frequency with smaller planes pike the A330 and 767 rather than lower frequency high capacity aircraft like the A340, A380 or the 747.

    The great 340 is a great airplane. The 380 is unstable during takeoff and landing. It's only a matter of time before there's a big crash.

    1. Airlines which need such large planes already have the 747. 2. It is uneconomic to support two different large aircraft. 3. The 380 requires gate modifications to support the upper deck. 4. It’s ugly.
