I think the article said this "Currently, Singapore Airlines operates 19 A380s. " It's all al about scale of economy and it appears that within Singapore Airlines they feel that the 380 is not working out. Which validates Boeing's move a long time ago to carbon fiber long haul a/c which AB promptly copied after seeing what Boeing was doing. Of note I am a huge fan of the 380 EK version have flown four trips three in FC and one biz. Great long haul have yet to fly the 787 but looking forward as I understand from people that the effects of jet lag are reduced.
