(May 21, 2021) - Malaysia Airlines has announced recently it's plans to withdraw and retire all Airbus A380 from their fleet, with plans to phase out the jumbo in the coming months. This comes after other airlines such as Air France, Qatar and Etihad moved to retire their A380s due to the significant drop in travel demand and subsequent loss of profits due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Malaysia Airlines received their first A380 in 2012, after several delays. A total of 6 A380 was delivered to the airline, and all have been placed in long term storage due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the retirement of their A380, Malaysia Airlines new flagship would fall to the twin engined A350, which has replaced the massive quad jets on most routes.
